Amira offers a FREE first / introductory lesson!
My name is Amira and I am originally from Egypt. I have an MA and PhD in comparative Literature from Egypt, I also have a second MA in translation and interpreting from UK. I studies teaching Arabic for non-speakers in Cairo University and in the American University in Cairo. Now, I am resident in UK, Cardiff. I have my own Arabic teaching Centre and teaching Arabic is my full time job.
I have been teaching since 1995. I taught first in Egypt and then moved to UK. In UK, I have a wide experience in teaching Arabic for non-speakers. I teach Arabic for beginners (children and adults). I teach Arabic for understanding Quran and Sunna. I also teach Arabic GCSE, and A Level.
My tutoring approach is based on my students' needs and background. I am a customer oriented tutor. So, the needs of my student direct me towards choosing the right material for him/her and choosing the most appropriate tutoring techniques. That is because I cover a wide range of client categories with regard to the age group and needs as well.

I am interested in learning the culture as well as the language; she has been able to give a detailed insight into this, which I feel I would struggle to find online. Amira is very calm and patient which helps the learner feel at ease during lessons. She is contactable outside of class if the learner has any questions. I am very pleased with my progress and I wish to continue with my studies for the next 2-4 years before moving to the middle east for work.
She makes sure the lesson is suited to your ability and sends you all the materials beforehand.
She also tries to make learning Arabic enjoyable by suggesting all sorts of ways to get immersed into the language such as listening to old and new songs.
I would recommend her as a tutor because she's super helpful, organised and ensures that each lesson is suited to your learning needs.
She is very considerate of the students particular needs, weaknesses and strengths and flexibly plans each lesson accordingly. I feel very fortunate and would *strongly* recommend Amira for anyone wishing to learn arabic in the future.
