Meet Mr. Tom

I began studying Arabic on a whim, and it turned out to be one of the best choices I’ve ever made. In addition to teaching at King’s, I have studied Modern Standard Arabic and colloquial Arabic in Amman, and worked as a translator and journalist for a refugee organization. I am now back in the US working towards a master’s degree and representing Arabic Year. I love talking Arabic, Jordan, and King’s. Contact me here!

Program of Study

Students participating in the Arabic Year program are able to construct a course schedule that meets their individual academic interests and curricular goals, within the framework of the King’s Academy curriculum and requirements. Like all students at King’s Academy, those in the AY program must take year-long Arabic, mathematics and English courses. In addition, AY program participants can take year-long or term-long courses in science, history, world languages, the arts and other areas. For those students returning to a home school after participating in Arabic Year, efforts are made to coordinate a student’s courses at King’s Academy with the home school’s requirements and recommendations. Most students at King’s Academy take six courses per term.
