What People Say




Amal is a passionate and rigorous teacher who makes the Arabic language fun to learn. She is intimately acquainted with Arab culture and countries and her expert knowledge of the Middle

East adds to the timbre of her lessons. Her enthusiasm is catching and she encouraged me to both read and write Arabic.


Programme Manager


I had two coaching sessions with Amal and both times she was very attentive and made me feel really comfortable. Amal's background meant her experience and manner helped the session to be insightful for me as I worked through a couple of challenges. I found both sessions valuable as she encouraged me to consider different perspectives and come to my own solutions to commit to action. I would definitely work with Amal again


Research Associate

(Hong Kong)

What I've found most helpful throughout these three sessions was our discussion on the possible career paths I could take following my PhD as well as tips on selecting PhD programmes that fit. 

Thanks so much for all the helpful advice! It's given me plenty of reassurance throughout such an intimidating process


Space Telescope Science Institute


Amal has been a great friend ever since I met her while doing my PhD in Cambridge. I remember us having several intellectual and rejuvenating discussions about various topics. More than that, she was always ready to help and support me by extending honest, practical and useful advice about every walk of life.
