Hello, and welcome to my page,
My passion and patience for teaching and helping others learn something new and/or improve on what they already know, lead me to my first tutoring session. And so started my eighteen year old journey of highs and lows, ups and downs, challenges and rewards. All through this time, I have been teaching, and specializing in ESL/ESOL, TOEFL Prep, classes privately and in groups of three to five, abroad ( the Middle East, Turkey, Italy, France,), in the US, (California, Michigan, New York, Illinois), and online. Working with different age groups, from children to adults, each with unique cultural and educational backgrounds, has given me extensive experience to tailor my teaching method, and lesson plan, based on individual student's needs. From students with zero knowledge of English, to those with elementary, or intermediate to advanced skills, and those with business needs; I have successfully helped my students overcome different challenges and milestones, step by step.
While teaching, I use visual and Audio Aides, examples of which include but are not limited to, pictures and songs, in order to engage the student, while assessing his or her needs. The home works and assignments, are a continuation of the private sessions, to challenge yet encourage students to practice, apply and use what they have already learned inside class, in the outside environment.
I have gone back to college full time, to pursue my degree in Teaching Art and my graduate work in Art Therapy. As a Creativity Coach, I also teach Creativity, Public Speaking and Personal Development Workshops.
Aside from English, I am also fluent in Farsi, and teach basic French as well.
My students' satisfaction and success is my number one priority, and I welcome constructive criticism, to improve and maintain a pleasant and beneficial teaching and learning experience.
While makeup sessions will be offered, a 24 hours advance notice is required for rescheduling and/or canceling sessions. I try to be flexible with time, but as mentioned before, due to my college class schedule, my Tuesdays and Thursdays are fully booked.
Also, since I use the public transportation, meet-up details will be worked out with students on an individual basis.
Thanks for visiting my page, I look forward to hearing from you, and help you on your way to better results! Remember, a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, and you have just taken the first step! Let me accompany you on this journey and help you every step of the way! Be well.
