Bio

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 attending graduate school majoring in psychology. I have a BA in English Translation and Teaching, and I have a large range of teaching experience from very young to adult.

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 attending graduate school majoring in psychology. 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.

Elementary Math

I realize how difficult it can be for younger students to grasp increasingly abstract concepts such as math and try to address that issue. Throughout my experience as a teacher and tutor, I have found the methods that help students understand the core of the concepts and perform well instead of only memorizing. I find a teaching approach that best suits the student's needs and goals and use methods to make the learning process enjoyable.

Farsi

Farsi

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.

Cooking

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.

Wonderful Farsi Tutor!!

We are extremely happy with Ms. Mava's teaching methods and kind tutoring skills for our two boys, with one being focus challenged. We love that she is a great mix of warmth and sternness, and knows how to teach young kids well. After countless attempts to find a tutor for our boys (none whom we've ever met though due to awful lack of communication from tutors), we cannot believe our fortune to find Ms. Mava to tutor our kids. We have always wanted our sons to learn their dad's tongue and now they may stand a chance to do so. Thank you Ms. Mava for all you do!!

Patient, kind and effective tutor

Mava is kind and patient with my 6 year old daughter. She has taught more to her in 2 lessons and has been more effective than the last 3 months at a previous school. She is wonderful!

Mabby, 13 lessons with Mava

Excellent teacher, makes learning fun!

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!

Norton, 2 lessons with Mava

Learning to spell Farsi!

Mava is giving my children spelling tests and also homework which I like. She is a great tutor and they both like her.

An Excellent Tutor for Everyone

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.

Heaven sent!

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!

Debra, 29 lessons with Mava

Lovely teacher!

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.

Yuka, 6 lessons with Mava

The best tutor ever.

She is really helpful and friendly. She knows what she's doing and what she teaches, I recommend her.

Mubarak, 26 lessons with Mava

Fun Farsi

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.
