TEACHING

I have taught courses in, foreign languages, Education, and cultural studies including courses of ESL, ASL (Arabic for Specific Purposes), literature, grammar, conversation, etc.

I have a great passion for teaching. It has always been part of my life since childhood. At a very early age I knew what I would like to have as a profession. Therefore, I pursed my education in Applied Linguistics and Educational psychology in order to learn the best theories and practices of how to become an effective teacher.

I am a dedicated educator and researcher. I strive to be the best I can in academia. As a teacher I am constantly reading and doing research to implement innovative and interactive educational tools and strategies that help motivate my students and increase their knowledge gain. I also enjoy integrating technology into teaching to increase engagement and motivation. I make every effort to better train my students to become responsible learners and enhance their communicative competence. I believe my diverse educational background in applied linguistics, educational psychology and research equipped me with the necessary knowledge to become a successful teacher.
