He is a post-graduate student and researcher in the Master in Business Administration Program in the Yemen Academy for Graduate Studies (Sana’a). Mr. Al-Dirbji has successfully finished all the requisite and main master’s subjects with merits and excellence.

Mr. Al-Dirbji possesses outstanding & diverse managerial, technical, lingual and job experiences via his studies and long career in different jobs and professions in Yemen and abroad. Besides, he has deep passion towards education and knowledge sharing.
After completion of his secondary education in Sana’a, he started his career by teaching English as a Second Language in private schools in Sana’a. Also, during that period, he was working on completing his TOEFL preparations in the best English Language Institute in Sana’a during the period of 2005-2007. His efforts led to successful graduation from the institute and obtaining TOEFL with a high score.
After acquiring advanced English proficiency, he got a fully sponsored scholarship to the United Kingdom to study Nautical Science, in order to work in the capacity of certified marine officer onboard Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) ships that transport Yemeni LNG from Balhaf Port in Yemen to the international markets. While he was enrolled in the scholarship program (about 5 years), he successfully utilized any home vacation periods in Yemen by working in English Language teaching and supervision in private schools in Sana’a, both Arabic & English sections, as well as private English tutoring.
Upon successful completion of his scholarship theoretical and practical programs, he worked for two years as a certified deck marine officer onboard LNG ships with Teekay Company (Canadian) that transported Yemeni LNG from Balhaf port to the international markets. Unfortunately, due to the eruption of war in Yemen (Mar 2015), he forcefully stopped his marine career given that the whole port in Balhaf ceased its operations.
Because of his impressive motivation towards productivity and success, he didn’t remain idle during his stoppage period from his primary marine career. Instead, he has enhanced his education, career, competencies and abilities by various means. First, he resumed his English teaching career in a leading private school in Sana’a (English Section – British AS Level Curriculum, Classes 11 & 12, Boys & Girls) for one year. Simultaneously, he taught English at Exceed Language Center (The best Yemeni English Language Institute). After one year of teaching at the private school and Exceed, he traveled to Malaysia for one year to complete some mandatory courses in his marine job and to work as an English Coordinator & Teacher at one of the English institutes in Malaysia. Upon his arrival, he joined the MBA program (Master in Business Administration) to diversify his professions. He also resumed his teaching career at Exceed Language Center in Aug 2018 until now. In his MBA, he has successfully finished all subjects (5 requisite and 11 main) with excellent grades. Currently, he is working towards completion of his master thesis to obtain his Master Degree. Finally, to strengthen and diversify his language abilities, he started taking French classes in Sana’a. He completed two terms successfully.
