I love to teach almost as much as I love to learn. As a cum laude graduate of Harvard University, I understand the value of a high-quality education and hold myself to strict standards to further my students' learning goals.
I have been enthusiastically tutoring/teaching languages for many years. Whether teaching Persian to US Government employees or leading classes in English Composition, Reading Comprehension, and Critical Thinking in Kazakhstan, I bring a high level of professionalism in addition to a healthy dose of fun. I believe that students learn best when they are engaged with the material being taught, so I use a variety of materials from sitcoms to crossword puzzles to pop music videos to trivia contests. Since everyone learns differently, it is the teacher/tutor's task to determine the learning style that best fits the student; I take this task seriously.
My schedule is flexible and I am happy to travel to any location accessible by public transportation, or to meet with you at another mutually agreeable location.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success.
I studied Persian at Harvard University for 3 years including coursework in modern and classical Persian prose and poetry. My fourth year of university I took a seminar where I had to write academic work in Persian. I then wrote a senior thesis that required extensive research in Persian language sources. I also tutored Persian at Harvard through the Bureau of Study Counsel. After university I worked for the US government as a Persian language analyst and language instructor for 8 years.
