I am an experienced teacher who has been working for 20 years. I have worked with a diverse population from various cultural and academic background. I have taught in English and Farsi/Persian languages. My teaching style is absolutely learner-centered. I have a flexible agenda in working with various students depending on their academic needs and time. As for the age groups I have worked with, I should say that I have worked with various age groups from elementary school to high school. I am a tutor and also a university instructor too.

I have taught various subjects: Math (Algebra1), social studies, psychology (cultural and social Psychology and Psychology of children with special needs), religion (religious theology, religious minorities and religious minorities and religious conflicts particularly in the MiddleEast). Other subjects that I have taught are sociology, and anthropology. I have been teaching sociology and anthropology at the university level since 4 years ago. But before that, I was teaching social sciences at the elementary, middle school and high school levels. As for my credentials, I have two Bachelor's degrees, one in religious studies and one in Math. Also I have 2 Master's degrees: one in Psychology and one in Sociology.
