Hi! My name is Samar and I live in Alexandria (Egypt). I teach Egyptian Arabic, Italian and modern Greek for beginners. I believe that teachers make the word a better place.
Tell us a little more about you and what you do
Hello, my name is Samar, I am a community tutor on many sites online and I am also Italian instructor in Alexandria my city since 2014.
I speak 4 languages Arabic English Italian and Greek.
I would like to learn more languages such as Spanish, Turkish and Russian.
I graduated from faculty of arts greek and roman studies in 2013.
In 2016 I won a scholarship in Greece and I finished level B1 in Aristotele University in Thessaloniki.
What Do You Enjoy the Most about Your Work?
I love this job because I am the only one who controls the time and the salary, I also love it because i don’t only teach others but I also learn from them.
Teaching helps me in forgetting my problems and in controlling the overthinking.
I adore online tutoring because it allows me to meet people from many different countries with different backgrounds and cultures.
Your Daily Routine
I wake up at 8:00 am and sometimes at 10:am if I am tired. I have my breakfast and I talk with my mother for a little bit then I feed my cat before I prepare myself to go to my work or to start my online lessons.
If I have to go to work in Alexandria, my city, I leave home at 1:00 pm so I can arrive at my work location easily and not be late for the lesson. I start the lesson at 2:00 pm and at 4:00 pm I start another lesson. I finish at 6:00 pm and after that, I decide if I will have a walk or if I will return home quickly if I have online lessons.
I don’t have fixed work or fixed working hours.
When I return home I eat and drink a cup of tea while trying to relax and rest after giving lessons.
I sleep every day between 12:00 am and 1:00 am maximum after checking my email and working calendar.
Unfortunately, I should care more about lunch and dinner but being so busy makes it hard for me to eat my favourite food.
When I return back to my home I just want to relax and to eat something because I am always hungry after teaching many lessons and to drink a cup of tea watching short TV shows and sometimes I fall asleep without eating or drinking anything.
In general, if I resist and don’t fall asleep I check my emails, wash my clothes and prepare for the lessons of the following day before going to sleep.
