About Me
italki teacher since May 6, 2020
Interest topicReadingHistoryTravel
My name is Hisham, and I’m teaching Arabic and Russian on italki. I’m from Beirut, Lebanon, so I’m a native speaker of Levantine Arabic and I have worked for years as a translator and proof reader, so I have a long experience with classic and standard Arabic too. I lived in Russia for 8 years where I obtained my diploma in medicine, and my certificate of teaching Russian for foreigner. Aside from my job as a doctor and translator, I’m a musician and yoga teacher. My interest range from travelling, hiking and outdoor activities to reading and digging into details of cultures and histories… I’m sure we can find lots of common interests that would make our lessons amusing.

I couldn't ask for a better language teacher than Hisham! He is a rare find, especially for Levantine Arabic. Native speakers I know are impressed by not only his curriculum's scope and sequence ("scope" meaning the topics he covers and "sequence" meaning the order in which they're taught), but also how flexible he is in teaching things just for me along the way! "Oh, this guy knows what he's doing," to quote one woman :)

These classes are great!!! If you like structure, this is a great choice. Hins has a great technique of delayed correction where he makes you try to fix your own mistakes, and uses your mistakes to teach you grammar and vocabulary. Lots of practice to drill the new structures and vocabulary into your head as well! He also brings in authentic material for our class and is very patient going through it. He assigns homework to make sure I’m practicing outside of class and preparing for the next class. I’m excited to continue!

Hicham is a great teacher! He is so kind and happy to work on difficult topics just as much as simple conversation. I can totally recommend him as a teacher. Bright and full of kindness. I am looking forward to my next lessons with you, Hicham!

As always, Hins is just great. He is always helpful and highly knowledgeable not only in Arabic but English also. Today he supported me in reading the Hobbit in Arabic translation, helping me with unfamiliar terms, sentence construction and testing my comprehension as I went along. An empathetic and supportive teacher. I highly recommend him.
