Dana has taught college and high school students since 2015. She believes in the role learning a language plays in having an open minded approach to life. For this, she decided to dedicate her career to teaching Arabic and French to people coming from different cultures.
Dana is great at explaining the material slowly enough for us all to be able to connect with it.

We love questions, almost as much as we love providing answers. Here are a few samplings of what we're typically asked, along with our responses
We know our students and teachers probably have holiday plans, so we do not hold classes on holidays. The full list of our skip dates is New Years Day, Martin Luther King Jr Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and a holiday break between Christmas and New Years.
Plans change—we get it. You have until 7 days before the start date of your Group Course to make any cancelations or same-level transfers. After that, there are no refunds under any circumstance. During the first 2 weeks of class, however, if you feel your level isn't the right fit, reach out to [email protected], and we will transfer you to a better fit, free of charge!
Most students do miss a class, or two, and we’re here to help ensure that you won’t fall behind despite any missed classes. We’ve set up our curriculum to make lessons easy to follow along outside of class, and your teacher will reach out to your group each week with a summary of materials, topics, and homework covered in-class.
All of our group classes meet for a total of 20 hours of live instruction. Some courses meet 2 hours once a week for 10 sessions, while others meet 1 hour twice a week for a total of 20 sessions.
