Hello there! I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Iranian studies (AKA Farsi/Persian language) and am currently earning an MA in linguistics from San Jose State University. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge with others in need. Aside from Persian, my studies in linguistics give me a special advantage (as opposed to most other tutors) in helping you with pronunciation (phonetics and phonology), and the building blocks of vocabulary (morphology).

I also have experience with Arabic (possess a near-native pronunciation in this language) and can coach non-native English speakers with their accent and higher-level English profeciency. My level of Arabic is ideal for first-year Arabic students.
