I have 15 years of experience of highly successful teaching in ESL, IELTS, Farsi (Persian), math (both elementary level and pre-algebra), cooking and clay arts and crafts (sculpture). I also teach Persian Dancing. I always discuss the needs of my new pupils very carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject. I have a BA in English Translation and Teaching, and I have a large range of teaching experience from very young to adult. I enjoy teaching, and am considered to have a caring approach. I try to make sure that learning takes place in a relaxed and fun but studious situation. I have a very good success rate with all of my students.

I have worked in different language schools as a teacher and a tutor. I have taught different subjects to the students of different ages with different backgrounds. I have been selected as the best teacher 3 years in a row. I have passed teacher training courses, therefore I know how to make the subjects easier to understand, keep the students interested, and help them understand challenging concepts.

I have taken classes in cooking, baking, garnishing and fruit and vegetable carving. I have had some TV show cooking classes back in my home country. I will demonstrate and talk about each dish and dessert in detail in my hands on classes. I reveal the hidden secrets behind the pleasant scent and flavor of popular recipes as well as some international dishes I have collected. I will also teach garnishing, nutritional fact and substitute ingredient of every dish taught so the student will be able to make a more educated decision.


I hold a BA in English Teaching and Translation. I have worked ESL for more than 15 years and was selected as the best teacher 3 years in a row. I have experience in translating articles from Farsi to English and vice versa.


I hold a BA in English/Farsi Translation. While working toward that degree, I have translated many texts of different varieties into my native language which is Farsi and the target language. I believe I can teach Farsi as well as English,since I have 10 years of experience in teaching. I consider the fact that I have been born, raised and educated in Iran an important factor in my qualification as a good teacher of Farsi. Also I have passed several courses in "Teaching methods" in university. I consider myself an intuitively patient person. Having had the experience to teach for 10 years has greatly enhanced that trait.
