My name is Safwan and I will teach Arabic as second language, Islamic Studies from Year 3 to Year 9 and Qatar History for Year 2. I am from Syria and I have an English Literature degree from Damascus University and now I am working on my Master's degree at SUNY Buffalow.
I have been in Qatar since 1990 and I worked at English Modern School first in administration for two years and then as teacher assistant and now as a teacher.
I know we will have a successful, productive year and I look forward to being a part of the academic progress your child will make.
My particular style of teaching is based on three things:
* Setting high expectations for every student.
*Showing respect for all students and expecting respect in return.
* last, but certainly not least, parental involvement.
It is my belief that when parents and teachers work together a student can accomplish anything.
