Carleton University (Canada) (Master's)
I am a bilingual (Farsi & English) linguist with more than 15 years of teaching experience. I was born in Iran but I am a US citizen. I have worked with students of different backgrounds in Canada, Iran, Turkey and the United States and it immensely contributed to developing phenomenal communication, interpersonal, organizational and leadership skills.. I did my MA in Applied Linguistics at Carleton University in Canada. I speak Farsi and English fluently and I can get by with daily conversations in French, Turkish and Arabic. I can help students achieve language learning side by side of understanding the cultural aspects. In elementary level class, I start with basics like alphabets, vowels and greetings whereas with advanced students I facilitate them to learn colloquial language, idioms, proverb as well as how to translate newspaper articles, poetry and literature. I utilize media like watching current news and documentaries as well as reading materials to stimulate the learning process.

Omid is an excellent tutor for one-on-one language learning. At the first meeting he could immediately assess what level of Farsi I could speak and he adapted his teaching methods quickly to make the most of our lesson. He helped me establish realistic goals for learning and explained to me the different techniques we would use. He has lots of experience as a teacher and uses his own materials. Omid also has a very kind and professional attitude. He is flexible with times and locations for tutoring, and makes a great effort to be on-time. I am so glad I found him!
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
