Information About Rawan - Carshalton teacher - (12 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Rawan:
I am a medical student and parallel to that, I teach Japanese and Arabic for students of all ages.
I am currently working as a bilingual interpreter with DA Languages.
I am a semi-professional ping-pong player and I enjoy reading and poetry.
I have been teaching Arabic to both children and Adults for 3 years.
Rather than adopting a single perspective for second language learning, I use aspects from 3 different approaches: the Grammar Translation Method (GTM), the Audiolingual Method (ALM) and Communicative Language Teaching (CLT).
If the student does not have a specific curriculum to learn, I choose it for them based on their level, purpose of learning the language, and whether they wish to learn a specific dialect or Modern Standard Arabic.
I believe that learning a language must be fun so I tend to use conversations as well as songs to link grammar and new vocabulary learnt to real-life conversations. I also include the cultural aspect associated with the language as it helps a lot to make links and better understand the background of the language. However, whether to include the cultural and/or the religious aspects is entirely up to the student/parent.
My students can pick up Arabic in a relatively short time as long as they are dedicated. The Arabic language is not difficult to comprehend or learn as long as there is a willingness to learn, study, and perfect it.

We needed a course which would address both fluency in the spoken language and literacy in the written language, and Rawan put together a bespoke program to address just that. Her use of poetry, songs, and modern media has helped build confidence and keep interest!
Rawan’s fluency in English and her in-depth knowledge of language structure is a real bonus. She is able to distill complex aspects of language into easily digestible units using simple easy-to-understand terminology.
Rawan’s lessons are something to look forward to and she is highly recommended.
(As an additional note, I should mention that all of our lessons have taken place over Zoom owing to COVID, but this has not been a limiting factor at all - Rawan is very tech savvy, and has found clever and innovative ways to ensure that our lessons and homework can continue seamlessly throughout this situation)
