About me

I love teaching Arabic to non-native speakers. It is my passion and purpose to make it easy to learn and simple to understand. As an Arabic, Quran, and Tajweed teacher for the past 4 years, I have met students who don’t even recognize one letter and end up memorizing surahs and writing in Arabic. It’s an honor to be part of their legacy and to see their smiles when they are able to have short conversations with me in Arabic and ask how I am. What a gift to teach others the language of our Holy Book. In my own studies, I have advanced certification in teaching children with learning disabilities. It’s important to me that Arabic and Quran are for everyone and it’s my job to find a way to make them accessible for all ages, levels, and abilities.
