My tutoring approach
Asalamu alikum, I am Mohamed a native Arabic teacher. I have been teaching English (ESL) and Arabic for four years. I worked as an Arabic teacher at Fairfield University in the United States. In addition to studying TEFL diploma certified from Oxford University, I attended educational courses and workshops in the United States.
I studied Language Education Technology class at Fairfield University to have hands-on experience of technological tools that exist today and to cope with today's learners. I also attended a United Nations event about promoting peace through education and a Fulbright conference in Washington D.C about teaching foreign languages.
Although I taught American students Modern Standard Arabic and Egyptian colloquial, I have extensive knowledge of Arabic language (Modern Standard, Classical, and Local Dialects.) I wrote more than 200 educational articles for various publications, the foremost among them is Hotcourses Ltd in the UK.
I acquainted American students with the Arabic civilization by conducting cross-cultural workshops. In these workshops, I presented some materials about Arab history and the Egyptian civilization, as well as helping students to study Arabic.
I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I always ask for feedback, and I never end a session in which the student doesn't understand or not completely satisfied with my tutoring.
I am flexible with time. I have a six hour cancelation policy. Depending on availability, I offer makeup classes.
I will provide you with free materials and free consultations by email or meeting by appointment.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals in your Arabic learning.

Have a look at what other people are saying about me...
I began to take lessons with Mohamed Ahmed Abdelsalam just a few weeks ago, before my first Arabic exam at the university.
I decided to continue the classes with him, because with him I understand better what I study at the university.
I definitely prefer the material that Mohamed uses for our classes to the one I use at the university: during the classes with professor Mohamed we practice the speaking, the listening, we do some grammar exercises and he always tries to teach me new useful words.
At the end of the lesson he always sends to me all the material we used and the new things we wrote during our session.
I am sure I will continue to take lessons with him not only now, but also in the future!
Mohamed is a very patient instructor. He quickly adapted to my learning needs and skill level. He is always well prepared with a challenging lesson plan that incorporates different learning modalities and original materials. He utilizes technology to keep me engaged throughout our sessions. The best part is that he provides me with notes of the session. As a business executive, I don’t have a lot of time, so the session notes Mohamed provides allows me to use my limited study time efficiently and enables an easy review of the topics covered over the last several lessons.
