I studied Arabic with Samar for several years when we lived in Lebanon. She was one of the most amazing pedagogues I have ever studied under and definitely the best language instructor I ever had. Her manner was patient, but persistent and very engaged. But above it all, it was her self-created teaching methodology using textbooks and language modules she had written up and recorded herself that drove the lessons. I highly recommend her and her language school. She is an exceptional and exceptionally gifted artisan of language pedagogy.
