Great teacher

Wisam has been teaching my five year old son how to read and write in Arabic while expanding his vocabulary. His colloquial Arabic is mild which is good for enhancing conversation skills across various dialects/accents, while he focuses on modern standard Arabic when reading and writing of course. He is a very patient and knowledgeable teacher, and is punctual and flexible.
Subject:
Arabic
Outcome:
I recommend him, thumbs up.

Very Competent Teacher, Very Interesting Teaching Method


I wanted to teach Arabic, which is my mother-tongue, but I was not sure how and where to start from. Wisam, with over 15 years of experience in this field, helped achieve this after only 10 lessons. His method simply consists in simplicity combined with creativity.

Reference for Wisam

Wisam taught French to my daughter at GCSE level over a 5 month period and she was incredibly positive about his capabilities as a teacher and the impact he had on her overall understanding of the subject. He is professional and thoughtful and really good at explaining things. He was able to quickly identify and address the fundamental gaps that had emerged in her knowledge and understanding of the subject and give her the confidence she needed to address them.
Subject:
French
Outcome:
Without his help she would undoubtedly have failed. He took her from a Grade D at her mock exam to Grade B at GCSE whilst also giving her a longer lasting interest in the subject.

So useful!


I have had a few English classes for intermediates with Wisam recently and I have found them very useful and interesting .I think the good thing about these classes that you get an opportunity to improve all your skills at the same time , both written and oral as the course includes grammar, listening, phonetics,conversation and different types of exercises. He is always helpful and willing to clarify any difficult points in grammar when students ask .
He tries to make sure that students understand the difference between the formal and informal language and keeps them updated on colloquial and everyday useful expressions. You can learn and have fun at the same time, without getting bored at all .
I definitely recommend his English classes!

Amazing Tutor

Wisam is one of the most patient and knowledgeable teachers I've ever had. No matter the grammar topic, Wisam is always able to very comprehensively explain the concept in a way that makes it easy to understand. He is the most knowledgeable linguist I have ever met and seems to be an endless source of knowledge for an Arabic dialect as well as French and English. He's not only an amazing knowledgeable and patient tutor but a kind and patient person. I'm very fortunate to have met him and could not have found a better tutor.

Passed postgraduate Arabic grammar exam and am continuing Arabic lessons with Wisam.

I went from failing my Mastering Arabic Stage One to gaining a first in my exam, thanks to Wisam. He was able to make learning correct grammar seem easy and best of all, made it enjoyable too! I am very grateful to him for his help, and hope that in the future I am able to progress in learning Arabic. If so, I will definitely be asking Wisam to tutor me again.

One to One Arabic Training

I underwent 4 weeks of intensive one to one Arabic training (in the Levant dialect) with Wisam in advance of working in the region. The training delivered by Wisam was excellent, with a great mix of practical instruction, cultural context and verbal language skills. This all helped to set me up with a broad and very helpful background in the region, as well as provide me with an excellent grasp of the basics of the Levant dialect, both spoken and written. The training was imaginative and stimulating. I recommend Wisam most highly to any prospective Arabic students.
