Instructor Biography

Sara Nasrallah, English Instructor

I am a certified and experienced English Teacher, specializing in teaching English as a foreign language. I have taught ESL online, in person as well as in five different countries.

I hold a Degree in Political Science and is currently working on my Masters in Sustainable Development and Social Regulation at the University of Geneva. I have extensive knowledge in social studies, languages as well as politics and law. I also speak two other Arabic and French. I understand how difficult it can be to learn a new language and to have to go through school without a strong hold of the language. For that reason, I will be creating a list of easy to follow classes, with simple terms and definisions. I believe learning should be for everyone, and so my videos are compreensivve!
