For the past six years, I have studied and taught the Arabic language to non-native speakers. My education has progress from initial theoretical study being awarded a Master's Degree in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching Methods of Helwan University. I have taught Arabic to students of many nationalities – American, British, Indian, Pakistani, Italian, Chinese, and Australian. I have taught students in a broad range of age groups – from children to adults. I have written and modified curricula of teaching, developed testing methods, added practice activity, and supervised educational trips to Egypt for foreign students. I am qualified in teaching Classical Arabic, Modern Standard Arabic, and Colloquial Arabic (Egyptian). I enjoy my work tremendously and work with constant drive for achievement. My working circumstances have been varied – working in foreign and Arab institutions, working in teams and alone. With groups, I am often in charge of the project. For me, the important person is the student. As the teacher, I am the director, author, producer, critic, and spectator in the educational process. The student is the main actor, always. I work well under pressure and have met all deadlines. I enjoy working with a variety of people and maintaining the positive attitude of the group. I am looking for a creative, challenging, growth-oriented position and would be pleased for the opportunity of speaking with you concerning my candidacy.
