I spent my whole life in Iran. I have my Bachelor's of Arts in Persian Language and Literature and my Master's of Art in Applied Linguistics (Teaching Persian to non-Persian students)from Iran. I have taught Farsi for more than ten years while I worked as a researcher on Iranian languages and dialects. So,Farsi is NOT just my NATIVE LANGUAGE. It is my Field of education and my interest. Being a native speaker does not make somebody proficient in their language; and, it is not enough for teaching a language. It is necessary to have linguistic knowledge about syntax, semantics, morphology, phonology and pragmatics for teaching a language. In all languages there are some exceptions and many rules that being aware of them will help student to progress in target language fast. I have linguistic knowledge of Farsi's structure and about how this language actually works. I explain all linguistic rules as its needed to give my students a perfect picture of what they are learning. My teaching plan is based on a linguistic approach and communicative method.

I'm really appreciative of your professional comment as a linguist and teacher, Ashley. Your high knowledge of linguistics and teaching language makes teaching easier and more enjoyable for me. I hope I can work harder to compensate the lack of reliable and perfect language materials for Farsi which obviously makes hard teaching and learning for both teacher and student.

"A fantastic friendly/easy to work with tutor."

Great tutor. — Marzieh is great - she is very knowledgable about Persian grammar, not only because it is her native language but because she has studied it. This linguistics spin on the lessons is very helpful to me, as she can often explain why something is the way it is, which can be very difficult even for native speakers to explain. She is professional and punctual, and always pleasant and helpful. ...
