italki teacher since Apr 27, 2021
My name is Muskan Mahboob but, you can also call me Ridha (Yeah weirdly I have two names!). My parents come from India but I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia.
I love making friends from different countries and, getting to know their cultures and traditions. I also love learning languages and can speak Urdu, Hindi, English, Arabic, and a little bit of German and Italian which I'm currently learning German on Italki itself!
Me as a Teacher
Being bilingual and a student myself I know how to approach and speak with a non-native student.
I am the kind of tutor who likes teaching in a fun, easy way and will always keep the learner motivated, active, and excited.
My goal as a communicator is to continuously improve my lessons, and adjust them for the learning styles of my individual students as no two students are the same.
My lessons & teaching style
Firstly, I will grasp your knowledge of the language to know your level. If you are a beginner, we can begin with basic hello-hi conversations and then advance slowly. Or, if you have some knowledge we can pick up on that then, proceed, and with no time you will start speaking with ease and confidence!
My vision while learning a language or teaching one is:
- talk like a native and not sound like a robot.
- sound cool.
- conversational practice to improve vocabulary, grammar, and confidence.
- sound cool again

Rida has done an excellent job connecting and engaging with our 5 year old daughter. She uses a good mix of techniques to teach and our daughter is steadily increasing her Urdu vocabulary, including memorizing songs and poems. Our daughter thoroughly enjoys each session and we look forward to how Rida will continue to evolve in her teaching as well.

I just had a lovely lesson with Muskan. Even before the lesson started she messaged me asking about my level, my aims and what I would like to cover in the lesson, and she came to the lesson with lovely self prepared materials, and a very passionate and fun teaching style. It was great fun talking to her, and she corrected my mistakes very gently and gave me lots of advice for improvement as we went along, using the chat box and simple easy to understand explanations. I highly recommend her lessons to anyone who wants to learn Urdu ☺️

My first lesson with Muskan was great. She was very friendly and helped me when I forgot how to say specific words. I would recommend taking a lesson with her!
