I am a native Persian
) speaker with over 10 years of teaching experience to both English
and non-English speakers, offering individual or group classes for beginner to advanced students. For the past 7.5 years, I have been teaching at an ACCET accredited language
institute, and am now offering private lessons.
I’m a patient teacher with an excellent and deep understanding of Persian and English, Iranian culture, literature
I will work with you to come up with a strategically sound plan tailor-made to your needs and interests. If you're a beginner, we will start with the alphabet and vowels, and then move on to sentence structure and grammar
. Conversations in Persian can start out early on to make you feel comfortable with the language. Lessons in Iranian culture and mannerisms are included, as I believe they are essential to your studies.
Persian is a very poetic and song-like language, and is quite simple in terms of formal grammar. This and the fact Persian and English share a common root in the Indo-European language family makes it one of the easier languages for English speakers to learn. Some familiarity with Persian will help with studies in Kurdish, Urdu, Hindi
Contact me if you’re interested in learning to read, write and/or speak Persian for work, travel, speak to a spouse or family members, be able to read Persian poetry and fiction, or just for fun. Whatever your proficiency, I can help.
I teach in person and online.
