In-person language lessons with a teacher can be a great experience, but if you're unable to find an affordable private Arabic teacher in San Mateo, online learning may be a good option for you. To take lessons with an Arabic teacher in your area, you may have to pay more to cover their travel costs or travel to their home, and the average cost of private Arabic classes for adults in San Mateo is over $20 per hour. With online learning, you can save on travel expenses and have access to top teachers from around the world.
Many students who try online language lessons with a teacher are pleasantly surprised by the experience. At LanguaTalk, lessons are 1-on-1 to ensure you get your teacher's full attention and can make rapid progress. Lessons are conducted via video call, allowing you to communicate with your teacher and share learning materials, as if you were in the same room. Give it a try with a free trial session and see for yourself!
You can watch Arabic teacher intro videos, check their availability, and read reviews from their students on their profiles. You'll also see which learning needs, ages, and levels the teacher is comfortable with.
Are you new to LanguaTalk? When you sign up, you'll get a token for a complimentary 30-minute trial lesson. Use this to meet your chosen teacher and decide whether you want to keep taking classes with them or look for an Arabic teacher in San Mateo instead. (Please note: not all teachers offer a free trial lesson - some charge 30% of their regular lesson price.)

If you want to speak Arabic fluently, read Arabic literature, understand Egyptian movies, or know about Arabic culture, we can learn professionally and delightfully simultaneously!
Languages are my passion! And I hold a bachelor's degree in Spanish Philology and a TAFL certification, so I'm aware of students' difficulties in learning a new language.
Besides, I hold a Psychology diploma in Mental Health, family counseling, and positive upbringing, and I am still studying Islamic studies.

I specialize in teaching Arabic to students who want to pass an Arabic exam, study in an Arabic university, prepare for an interview, or even those who want to learn Arabic to live in an Arabian country.
Besides, I have experience in how foreign speakers deal with Arabic. And how to make you speak Arabic from the first lesson!
Every student has their learning style, so let me know yours in our first lesson. My approach will be customized according to what you prefer.
I speak English and Spanish, but I rarely use English or Spanish words in my classes (except when the student asks for them)

About me: Teaching and studying Languages is my hobby. I have been teaching Arabic for over 5 years now to people from all over the world and although it's not an easy language, they all loved the language. Most of them mastered the language and of course, this motivates me to teach more and more. Actually, I feel happy and proud when I teach someone anything. And because languages are my passion, in my free time, I study French and Spanish. Also in my free time, I like to draw, travel, play music, read, watch movies and cook. I play the violin, okay not perfect but I love music and enjoy it.
As a teacher: Isn't it annoying when you are talking to your teacher and you are thinking about grammar, or you know that you made a mistake but your teacher isn't correcting you? I know I hate it. It's a waste of time and money. In our lessons, I will ALWAYS correct you, by writing down or interrupting to tell you this was mispronounced, grammatically incorrect or if it doesn’t sound right or natural. I have experience in teaching non-native Arabic speakers. I have taught many students and they all loved the language. I can teach children and adults in a simple and uncomplicated way. I am patient and friendly. I am flexible, I don't have a problem if a student asks me to change the topic or reschedule.
My lessons and teaching style: In our lessons, we make conversations on different topics, every class we choose a topic and discuss it in an interesting way. I write the new vocab and practice and as I mentioned above, I ALWAYS correct mistakes whether grammar or pronunciation mistakes or even if it doesn't sound very natural. We can read topics, write the new vocab and read it more and more. This is in addition to videos, we can watch videos and discuss them. You Can write about different topics. Then I will correct mistakes and explain them We can translate also. I will give you a text to translate and correct it together. I can also give homework to the student to prepare on their own and then we can review it.
I'm Rofayda, a Native Arabic speaker From Egypt, living in Makkah.
I'm a tutor for Modern Standard Arabic (Fos-ha and Egyptian accent) Quranic Arabic, Quran Recitation, and Tajweed Rules. I'm "certificated in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language", endorsed by The Career Certification Program in Teaching Arabic as a Foreign Language (CCTAFL) by the American University in Cairo (AUC), with more than 7 years of experience in teaching Non-Arabic speakers and students from all levels (from beginners in level zero till advanced levels). Also, I worked for many international media agencies as an Arabic proofreader and translator.
My teaching method focuses on conversation, speaking, and how to support it with the Arabic grammatical side in addition to improving my every student’s confidence in using the language focusing on everyday situations. I also customize my teaching approach and materials based on my student’s special needs & goals.
Teaching Arabic,Tajweed and Quran is not just a job for me it's a passion :)
It's my pleasure to start this journey with you.
My name is Mohamed. I was born and raised in Egypt. I am a certified teacher in teaching Arabic to non-native speakers. I have been teaching Arabic as a steady job for 3 years. I teach both kids and adults of all levels. I am also one year away from receiving my bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Alexandria. I have a passion for linguistics and have been studying English all my life and in-depth for over 3 years, which will assist me to communicate well with English-speaking students especially beginners and intermediate. I am a kind and patient teacher, very supportive and I will support you till the end.
Me as a Teacher
I am available to teach you Arabic in either Egyptian dialect or standard. I have the capability to teach any level of Arabic, which includes beginners, intermediate, and advanced. I totally feel you and I understand the difficulty that you might have to learn a language because I am a student too and I experienced learning French and English. Over the last 4 years. I have taught Arabic to students from all over the world and I know how to make it easy on you, so do not worry.
My Lessons & Teaching Style.
I pick the material that suits your level and I send all the notes and all what we covered during the class to you after we finish the class. I also attach a voice record with the document of the new words and expressions, so that you can imitate me and fix your pronunciation. I am skilled in creating conversations during the class
I can teach you a wide variety of aspects, such as proper pronunciation, enriching your vocabulary, conversational skills, how to read and write Arabic, as well as grammar rules. All of these aspects will help you to speak like a native Arabic speaker and enhance your ability to understand the language better. I will teach you both orally and visually as well to enhance your learning experience.

One of the benefits of online classes is that you can learn anytime, anywhere. When you choose a teacher, simply check their calendar to ensure that they have times that fit your schedule. Some teachers may have limited availability due to high demand.
LanguaTalk offers personalized 1-on-1 Arabic classes with top-rated tutors. Here's how to get started:
1 - Find a tutor that meets your needs by reviewing their videos, reviews, pricing, and availability.
2 - Book a trial lesson. Many tutors offer a free 30-minute trial, while others offer a discounted trial price.
3 - Have personalized classes with your chosen tutor via video call. Or try a different tutor if desired.
You don't need to provide credit card information to book a free trial session. Please only book a trial if you're seriously considering taking classes. Tutor prices vary, and you can use the filter to find one that fits your budget. You can pay for individual lessons or purchase a package for a discount (view a tutor's pricing options on their profile).
We're confident you'll enjoy learning on LanguaTalk. Our platform is trusted by students worldwide because of our transparency. We ask students to rate each lesson, and we display these ratings on tutor profiles.
99.8% of lesson ratings are 5 stars. This is because we only accept the top 10% of tutor applications, unlike other platforms.
To access our full list of FAQs or get assistance from our friendly team, click the '?' in the corner of the screen. You can also watch students sharing their experiences learning on LanguaTalk below.
Most students take 55-minute classes. However, some tutors also offer the option of 30-minute classes. If this option is available, it will be noted on the tutor's profile (below their pricing and above the 'Buy Lessons' button).
In general, 55-minute classes are recommended for most students. 30-minute classes may be suitable if you're taking lessons for your child or if you have an intermediate level and only want conversation practice.
Lessons are taught one-on-one to ensure that you receive customized instruction. During the classes, your tutor will use a variety of teaching methods and resources, including language exercises, conversation practice, and cultural notes, to help you reach your learning objectives.
All classes take place via video call. Your tutor will normally give you a choice of calling tools, all of which are easy to use.
If you're new to LanguaTalk, we'll provide you with a credit for a free trial session. Many, but not all, teachers offer these for free. If a tutor does not offer a free trial, the trial price will be 30 percent of their full lesson price, allowing you to still try a session at a reduced cost.
Trial sessions last 30 minutes. They allow you to determine if the teacher is a good fit for you and get a sense of what online learning is like. The teacher will assess your level and try to understand your needs and interests so that they can tailor any classes you choose to take. You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in Arabic, but you can also speak in English if needed.
If, after your trial session, you don't feel that the teacher is right for you, you can book a trial with another teacher for 30 percent of their full lesson price.
Some tutors on LanguaTalk may also provide in-person classes for adults in San Mateo, but most only offer online classes for adults as it is more convenient and allows them to work from home. Additionally, most tutors are not located in San Mateo because they are living elsewhere in the world. If you book a lesson with a tutor, you should assume that the lesson will be conducted online.
Some students might be unsure about learning Arabic online because they think it will be very different from in-person learning. However, many students find that the online experience is similar and they often develop strong relationships with their teacher.
Once you start a video call with your selected teacher, you'll be able to communicate with them as if you were in the same room. The teacher may also share learning resources with you (such as newspaper articles or YouTube videos) and you'll be able to collaborate in real-time using tools like Google Docs or Dropbox Paper.
If you prefer in-person classes for adults over online learning, LanguaTalk may not be the best fit for you. Instead, you can search for a teacher on a local service listing website or place an advertisement in your area. However, we do encourage you to try online learning – you have nothing to lose by booking a free trial session. Many students find that the online experience is just as good as in-person learning, with the added benefit of access to higher quality teachers at a lower cost.
Our research suggests that the average hourly rate for private Arabic classes for adults in San Mateo is between $25-$35. Since online teachers don't have to travel to you and often live in countries with a lower cost of living, their hourly rate tends to be significantly lower.
