I am a former director of the Persian Farsi Language Program for the Foreign Service and have taught high level diplomats and dignitaries Farsi for over 35 years. I have worked as a translator and a teacher to adults and children of all ages and look forward to working with you in learning the Farsi Language. I offer intensive Farsi classes for those who need to learn the language quickly as well as for young adults who would like to learn to speak the language as well as for clients who will be marrying a Persian man or woman.

I have taught well over 1,000 students over my 35 years in tutoring and many of my students have gone on to work for the government. My method is a hands on approach to teaching Farsi with the emphasis in understanding the language.

I look forward to hearing from you!

I opened the first non-profit Persian Language Program in the DC metro area in 1976.
I am able to teach conversational farsi as well as reading and writing as my first language is Farsi and I hold a degree in teaching from Iran.

Outstanding — Time flew by. I thoroughly enjoyed my lesson with Partoo. She was extremely patient and was constantly giving me real life examples to apply each and every facet of the lesson at hand. The cliche of LEARNING CAN BE FUN is 100% applicable when taking a class with Partoo. ...
