Egyptian tutor. Mother tongue being Arabic (Egyptian, Classical, Lebanese) and fluent in English and French.
The foundation of any success in a student`s school life starts at relaxation and self-confidence, so before I start teaching any of my students I make sure that we have a conversation wherein I ask them questions and hear their opinions and make sure that they feel valued and appreciated by their tutor. Also, I get to understand what their needs are and I go ahead and tailor my lessons to their requirements. I believe that everyone has the capability of doing much more than they think they can so encouragement plays another key role in my sessions.

am also a trained actor with an MA in Classical Acting from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. My experience in acting ranges from theatre, TV to voiceover. I just finished a 6-month run of "Antony & Cleopatra" at the National Theatre in London alongside Ralph Fiennes.
My school education up to my last 2 years of high school was in a private French language school where I gained my fluency in French.
Arabic is my mother tongue, and I have extensive experience in translation for dubbing, and being a voiceover actor for Arabic dubbing for Disney, Paramount, Sony and Playstation. For the last 2 years I have held the position of Creative scri pt Supervisor for Amazon Studios where I am responsible for reviewing and approving all translated scri pts from English to Arabic going into the dubbing process.
Previous students have said about my teaching:
1) "I learned a great deal about acting from Waleed, and also learned what it truly means to be a hard worker and care about what you do to the extreme".
2) "Waleed didn`t just teach me about acting, he taught me about human nature. He was the one professor I learned from the most in my whole life, and the most important thing I learned was how to deal with differences between people, how to understand the world around me, and Waleed manages to teach those values through the work, never spoon-feeding."
3) "The most dedicated mentor and coach, he was always looking for a change and he just did. Thank you for the helpfulness, dedication, time you gave us Waleed".
4) "I did not imagine before I started the course that I wouldn`t want it to end this much...I learned a great deal from Waleed. This course changed so much of how I think as a human being first, then as an artist. When it comes to the artistic value, there is so much to talk about. Such an amazing positive attitude, a dedication, a high level of focus with each student. We all felt as if every lesson was tailored just for us."
