My name is Sherry. I have a passion for teaching and tutoring. I really enjoy teaching students who have an enthusiasm for learning. I am able to tutor French at all levels, elementary and middle school level English. I can also tutor and teach beginner level Farsi, it is my native tongue.
Currently, I am teaching French to college level students, but I do enjoy working with elementary and middle school students as well.
I have tutored one student in Farsi for one week, 1 hour a day 5 days a week. He was an advanced student so we worked on conversation, we reviewed the different verb tenses in Farsi, and we read a poem by Golchin Gilani "Baaz Baaran" in Farsi. For beginner Farsi students, those who want to learn to read, write, speak and understand, the best method is to begin with the 32 letters of the alphabet. Then, in order to learn to write they practice spelling each letter as it goes in the beginning, middle, and end of the word. With each letter, they will learn a series of words. Then, I will use Colloquial Persian to go over basic conversations in Farsi. Etc. I have several books that I use for practice, reading, writing, grammar review, and role-play.
Since I have been teaching French for many years, and since Farsi is my native language, it would be a good educational experience for myself and the students if I branch out and begin tutoring students in Farsi. I would like to begin with very beginner students first, before tutoring them in more advanced concepts and terminology.
