About Samira

I have been teaching Farsi for three years now after I came to the USA as a Fulbright scholar to teach Farsi at Johns Hopkins University SAIS. Since then I have had many students from different backgrounds and proficiency levels and they all passed their proficiency tests with excellence. I also worked as a translator for some organizations and NGOs within the Dc metro area.

I am holding a degree in teaching from Iran. My specialty is teaching Farsi to students who need to learn the language quickly and need to pass their proficiency tests at a certain time. I also teach Farsi to young adults or adults who would like to speak the language. I look forward to working with you as well in your learning process.

My method is mostly based on both conversational Farsi and learning the "language" and I utilize the materials that are the most updated teaching materials that students also have access to them online for further practice.

Approved subjects

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.

Farsi

I am qualified to teach Farsi because I have been a Fulbright Scholar for teaching Farsi in an accredited university as a teacher's assistant in the USA. I have been teaching Farsi for 3 years to adults and American students from different backgrounds and proficiency levels. All my students have successfully passed their proficiency tests and those who did not have to pass a test are satisfied with my flexibility and ability to understand their needs of language.
