Fatima, Arabic Peer Tutor

Marhaba! I am a sophomore majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Arabic. I am a first-generation college student and commuter to UIC. I grew up in an Arabic-speaking household and learnt English more formally when I started school. From a young age, I have been studying Standard Arabic and since middle school I have been learning French. Now, I’m studying Arabic at UIC to better understand Arabic media and knowledge; and it has helped me with my own dialect as well! I also have been learning programming languages over the past few years, so I have lots of experience learning all kinds of different grammars, alphabets, and ways of thinking! I remember how it is to begin studying a language, and staying motivated to stick to it, so I hope my study habits and experiences can help you as well and make learning Arabic easier and clearer!

Ahlan! I am a junior majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Arabic. I live in the Northwest suburbs so I understand the struggle of trying to get help while being a commuter. My parents are immigrants from Jordan, and Arabic has been the main language spoken in my home for as long as I can remember. I love the beauty and complexity of the Arabic language and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Maggie, Arabic Peer Tutor

Hello everyone! I am a senior majoring in Biochemistry and my main interests are natural drug discovery and research.  I work in a microbiology lab on the west campus. I am an only child and a first-generation student. I was born in America but was raised in Palestine for 10 years, so Arabic is my second language. I understand how hard the Arabic language is, especially when it comes to grammar. I also took Arabic 104, so I know the professor and her technique in teaching. I look forward to being able to assist you and help with any challenges you might have.

Salmah, Arabic Peer Tutor

Hello everyone! I am a second year English major with an Arabic minor so I can better understand the vast discussions on Islamic thought and ongoing research in the language. I am currently a 103 student with Dr. Babiker so I am very involved with the content from recent semesters. As a non-native speaker, I know the challenges that can come with choosing to study a language as variable as Arabic. I have had many positive experiences with peer tutors in my other classes, so I look forward to helping however I can in your Arabic classes. Let’s improve our understanding of this incredible language together!
