Learning Assistant

An early career in US embassies overseas led me to various jobs while moving around and raising a family with a diplomat spouse. From 1994 – 2013, I tutored English as an Additional Language in private institutes and US Public Schools.

A two week summer EAL job in 2014 at BISW brought me to my current position as a Learning Assistant.

I was born in Damascus, Syria to Armenian parents, married an American and have two grown sons. The early years of our family life was spent living in different countries, mainly in Asia and the Middle East. Learning new things and staying active motivate me. I believe a school provides the ultimate environment to nurture my aspirations.

The diverse background of the student body and parents, in addition to the dedication of teachers and staff to provide the best possible learning environment, makes BISW a special place.
