I was super nervous and excited to pursue Arabic lessons. I started on my own with an App, but didn't feel like I was advancing fast enough so I decided to seek a tutor. Zahra responded to my thumbtack request quickly and was very detailed adressing my questions. She answered all my initial questions and was willing to do things at my comfort level. During our initial meeting I loved her energy, enthusiam, and structured style of teaching. I like that she has a variety of teaching methods with music, movies, and social outting. I have a very busy schedule with work, but these lessons leave me excited and craving more to learn even after a hard day. I am very happy to have found Zahra and I enjoy how she breaks everything down keeping me on my toes learning! I'd definietly recommend anyone looking for a fun and educational venture to hire Zahra! She's organized, structured, and most important patient.
