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.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
