I studied Special Education and taught Arabic to both regular students and students with learning difficulties. In Arabic, I teach basic skills (phonics), reading decoding, writing expression, grammar,oral expression, and spelling. I taught students from grade 1 to grade 6 and my teaching approach basically relies on my students' needs and individualized channels of learning.
I am a Special Education teacher living in Lebanon who taught for more than 16 years mostly at the elementary level. I taught more than 100 students on a one to one basis, using different methods tailored to the needs of each student.

I was an educational consultant at the school where Mrs. Nada worked as a special coordinator. I worked closely with her for the past 4 years. During this time Mrs. Nada proved to have a wonderful approach with learners. She builds rapport with them and they enjoyed learning with her. She was always prepared with materials that learners could relate to in different subject matters. She is well experienced in differentiated instruction and always ready to have teach in ways to reach the learners. Parents could communicate with her very easily. She believes in partnership when it comes to education. It is a pleasure knowing you Mrs. Nada.
I have known Nada for almost 12 years. We were colleagues at the work place. Nada is a hardworking lady, persistent, highly cooperative, creative and have a high sense of work morale and ethics. She is never hesitant to put all efforts and potentials in the task assigned to her. She is is dedicated, patient, kind-hearted and she is a lovely lady who would be a valuable asset for any school, organization, or institute she joins.
I have known Nada as a colleague for more than 10 years now where we worked together at a school. Nada is a highly resourceful teacher. Being a special Educator, she comes with a huge package of material and strategies to work with the student on building a solid base of the Arabic language skills. Moreover, she is a sensitive and patient tutor who is able to have a deeper understanding of the needs of the child she is working with.
Ms. Nada is a very patient calm and professional teacher. She was able to assist and support my son in her own way. She is always willing to give examples to simplify the material in a way that makes the life of the student easier.
I recommend her to any required tutoring sessions and classes.
I have known Mrs. Nada Tabesh as a special educator for my son since two years ago.
Mrs. Nada is an excellent teacher since, she played a great role in the developement of my son. This appears clearly in his fluent reading in both Arabic and English Language.
Also, she is a well organised teacher. Mrs. Nada's office is well arranged to enhance the learning of the student with the special needs. In her office you can see a wide white board full with many pictures and cards to make the teaching and learning process more easy and fruitfull. In addition to this, you can see many manipulatives and toys filling the office. Also, Mrs. Nada assigned a communication copybook for my son so that to make the collabration with us and the therapists more clear and organized.
Moreover, Mrs. Nada has a calm and a silent nature. This personality helps reduce the stress in the class room and my son used to feel so safe and confident while learning.
Finally, nothing is important as having a true love of my son. Kids instinctively know when they are loved and Mrs. Nada's love plays a great role in my son's character and behavior development.
I strongly recommend Mrs. Nada as a great and wonderful teacher for students with special needs and she is the professional educator for students who need the help of expert practitioners.
It is a pleasure for me to write this letter that strongly recommends miss Nada tabch as an excellent teacher of my son in the 1st till 4th grades of HHSC2 who had difficulties..
miss nada brought to my son and all her students different techniques of teaching that encourage them to speak and write with a vast vocabulary by several activities by being a best friend , a great teacher .. encourage and challenging them .. my son have a high opinion of her teaching skills and we have seen great results in his education process ..
