Bachelor (Teaching and translation)
I have 19 years of experience of highly successful teaching. I always discuss the needs of my new students very carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject. Currently I am a radio host on a very popular Persian radio station 4 days a week. I have a BA in English Translation and Teaching, and I have a large range of teaching experience from very young to adult. I absolutely love teaching, I believe in my work and I take satisfaction and fulfillment from seeing a sparkle in my students' eyes when they learn something they didn't know before.
I am considered to have a caring approach. I try to make sure that learning takes place in a relaxed and fun but studious situation. As you can see, I have a very good success rate with all of my students and have developed a highly-attuned sense of technique in the classroom - I precisely know what to do and how to do it. I continually strive to increase my professional knowledge and skills and to apply them in practice. I teach different subjects such as ESL, IELTS, Farsi (Persian), math (both elementary level and pre-algebra), cooking and clay arts and crafts (sculpture). I also teach Persian and Belly Dancing
I have worked in different language schools as a teacher and a tutor. I have taught different subjects to the students of different ages with different backgrounds. I have been selected as the best teacher 3 years in a row. I have passed teacher training courses, therefore I know how to make the subjects easier to understand, keep the students interested, and help them understand challenging concepts. I can also teach online. I have 19 years of experience of highly successful teaching. I always discuss the needs of my new students very carefully and aim to build their confidence in the subject.

Mava is heaven sent! An absolute angel! I am learning Farsi and Persian cooking from her. I feel my horizons are broadened, my friends are impressed, and I have a list of people dying to come to dinner on Thursday nights! A private tutor in my own home. What a perfect concept!
Mava is always helpful, she has great patience and also reviewed each with me to make sure I Understand.
My wife and I needed a hurry-up, crash course in Farsi to prep us for a vacation trip to Iran. Mava not only taught us a treasury of useful words and phrases but also gave us a primer on contemporary Iran customs and manners.
We highly recommend her!
Mava is giving my children spelling tests and also homework which I like. She is a great tutor and they both like her.
Mava is a nice, pleasant, patient, professional tutor. She is teaching ESL to my daughter and my daughter likes her very much and enjoys the class because she learns a lot of her teacher. Mava is a serious but very friendly teacher which makes her the perfect choice for a good teacher. She knows what she is doing and she is a responsible person. I highly recommend her as an excellent tutor.
I've been taking sessions with Mava for about 2 months. She's taught me a lot about grammar, pronunciation, and conversation skills. I really enjoy her class! Thank you Mava. I totally recommend you.
She is really helpful and friendly. She knows what she's doing and what she teaches, I recommend her.
Mava was very informative and made learning Farsi fun. She answered my questions gracefully. Working with her was a positive experience. It seems she has mastery of the Persian language as well as teaching it.
Mava is very patient and easy to work with. She is currently teaching me Persian - I am in an interesting place in that I have picked up some of the language already which makes it difficult to know where to hop in exactly but I feel she is doing a great job identifying where I need work.
She is very nice, punctual, and I never feel like she is waiting for the hour to be up so she can leave - she is engaged the whole time and there for me.
I have only had 2 sessions so far, but I anticipate she will be my tutor for the next few years as I try to master this language.
She was a good teacher, and she helped me about my presentation. Her teach very well.
Thanks a lot Mava.
Mava is an excellent tutor - very pleasant and professional. Definitely is a pleasure to work with and would definitely recommend her.
I have started my tutoring with Mava (Fatemeh) and at this point I am really happy with her. I have a lot of concerns with my Persian and need a lot of guidance. I look forward to practicing speaking and listening with her! She was very patient with me and also let me go over parts of speech/syntax that is important for me.
If you are looking for a Persian language tutor, I highly recommend Mava (Mary.) She's a very kind, patient, and knowledgeable teacher. You will comfortable trying out new words and sentences. Mary explains grammatical concepts in a very clear, concise way. She's an all around super teacher!
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.
I have taken classes in cooking, baking, garnishing and fruit and vegetable carving. I have had some TV show cooking classes back in my home country. I will demonstrate and talk about each dish and dessert in detail in my hands on classes. I reveal the hidden secrets behind the pleasant scent and flavor of popular recipes as well as some international dishes I have collected. I will also teach garnishing, nutritional fact and substitute ingredient of every dish taught so the student will be able to make a more educated decision.
I hold a BA in English Teaching and Translation. I have worked ESL for more than 19 years and was selected as the best teacher 3 years in a row. I have experience in translating articles from Farsi to English and vice versa.
I hold a BA in English/Farsi Translation. While working toward that degree, I have translated many texts of different varieties into my native language which is Farsi and the target language. I believe I can teach Farsi as well as English,since I have 10 years of experience in teaching. I consider the fact that I have been born, raised and educated in Iran an important factor in my qualification as a good teacher of Farsi. Also I have passed several courses in "Teaching methods" in university. I consider myself an intuitively patient person. Having had the experience to teach for 10 years has greatly enhanced that trait.
