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.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Cooking

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.

ESL/ESOL

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.

Farsi

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.
