While working with clients, we’re constantly learning about their needs and managing inquiries that arise. As a result, we’ve included a list of frequently asked questions along with answers in order to provide additional support. If your question isn’t addressed below, get in touch with us and we’ll provide the information you need.
WHAT EDUCATION AND/OR TRAINING DO YOU HAVE THAT RELATES TO YOUR WORK?
I have a PhD in Applied Linguistics from Georgetown University, Washington, DC. I have taught foreign languages over 25 years. I taught English as a Foreign Language at the American University in Cairo for 15 years, and Arabic at the Universities of Maryland, Utah, and Georgia Tech for 12 years. I also have a Certificate on Online Teaching.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED DOING THIS TYPE OF WORK?
I have been fascinated by languages since I was a child. I am a polyglot and speak 4 languages. I have been teaching foreign languages for over 25 years.
WHAT IF I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH CENTER OF ACQUISITION OF LANGUAGE, LITERACY, AND CULTURE (CALLAC)?
If you are not satisfied with Center of Acquisition of Language, Literacy And Culture, you will be refunded immediately. However, we conduct surveys to get our clients feedback on a regular basis to meet their goals, fulfill their needs and find solutions to their problems. Our clients' satisfaction is the most important aspect in our work.
ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS FOR FIRST-TIME CUSTOMERS?
Yes our first-time customers will have a 2-week trial period. They will have lessons free of charge. We care for learning and gaining our clients' trust more than anything else.
DESCRIBE A RECENT PROJECT YOU ARE FOND OF? HOW LONG DID IT TAKE?
I developed a web based blended course of teaching Arabic language, history and culture through songs. It took 9 months. I can use this course in my teaching if clients are interested.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE A CUSTOMER LOOKING TO HIRE A PROVIDER IN YOUR AREA OF WORK?
Make sure your tutor is qualified. Just being a native speaker of the language doesn't qualify the person to be a good tutor. Teaching languages requires talent as well as solid education, background and good long experience in teaching. Ask the providers if they have the right qualifications and credentials to teach. If their teaching style is student centered. Ask for concrete examples how they teach through a student-centered approach. If they are qualified to teach online and if they use interactive engaging methods.
