italki teacher since Feb 5, 2013
I am originally Palestinian, but I grew up in Jordan before moving to the US as a child. I have never lived in Palestine/Israel, but I have been exposed to other Levantine dialects while growing up, which has affected the way I speak. As a result, what I speak is mostly Palestinian, but with some Jordanian influence.
If you are booking your first tutoring session with me, *please contact me first.* (See the “My Lessons and Teaching Style” section for details.) Otherwise, I will contact you before accepting your lesson request. Also, please be aware that I do not teach children. I only have experience working with adults.
Me as a Teacher
I am looking for people who are interested in improving their Arabic. My native Arabic dialect is the Palestinian Levantine dialect.
I have a M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies, and a B.A. in German, European Studies, and Italian. While studying, I have tutored and taught Palestinian Arabic. In addition, I also studied MSA in school as well as on a college level, and thus I can offer help with written MSA.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is conversation-focused, with emphasis on vocabulary/grammar. If you are booking your first tutoring session with me, *please contact me first.* Let me know what your Arabic level is, whether you’re learning MSA or a dialect, and what your goals are. Otherwise, I will contact you before accepting your lesson request. At the moment, I offer Levantine conversation practice for all levels and written MSA help (but no MSA conversation, and no MSA for beginners). If you are interested in lessons with written homework, please contact me first for rates.
I only teach adults. If you are booking lessons for others (your students, etc.), please let me know.

I have great lessons with Dalia. Last lesson she sent me a video on a subject which interests me, and today we spoke about the video and the words I learnt from it. I enjoyed the lesson, and I'm also glad we have a plan for next lessons.
