About Me
italki teacher since Aug 26, 2014
I've been teaching since 2010. Before that I was an Arabic Linguist for the US Air Force. I focus on Conversation Strategy, and Language Structure. In my view, a language is a naturally occurring organism that grows in a tree-like, 'fractal' shape. By understanding this, I've been able to help many people "grow" their language, similar to it being a garden in their mind. I believe this process reflects the way we naturally learn language as children.

Mind blown! I asked to learn both conversational MSA and Syrian dialect side by side and Tony was very agreeable to do so! Got a mini cultural lesson discussing different dialects then we dove right in! His method makes it fun to learn/play with Arabic and set a good foundation.

Tony Marsh is amazing and is well worth his rates, as he has me up and running with Arabic conversation much quicker than other teachers I've tried, including one-on-one in person lessons with a certified teacher.

Tony did a great job, we had a little chat at the start and then broke down into some strategy of where to go. He quickly covered some topics that I’ve struggled with/assumed to be too difficult or not worth learning in the past. I left the session feeling very encouraged and he gave me lots of great ideas of how to improve on what I have already. شكرا جزيلا يا توني!

Fresh approach. Tony restored my belief that I could learn a foreign language. We jumped right in and I was able to start retaining some phrases right away. Highly recommend.

Excellent session! I am impressed with the method and its unlocking the potential of learning language for me! Constructing sentences and instant dialogue practice makes the experience meaningful. Thank you Tony!
