About Balash

I have been teaching and tutoring Farsi for almost 12 years in Australia and USA. I worked with all grades and levels and throughout this experience I have built up a method for English speakers to learn Farsi easily in a short term. I use a variety of resources including audio-visual materials in order to facilitate the learning process. I am flexible to meet the student's need and pace. I believe teaching language should be effective and fun at the same time. I have been teaching and tutoring Farsi for almost 12 years in Australia and USA.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a Massachusetts License for teaching middle school mathematics. In addition, I have taught math k-10 on frequent basis for past 16 years. I follow the Massachusetts curriculum framework and add extra materials if needed. I also apply Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory (with modification on overlapping learning styles) in order to teach more efficiently.

Chess

I have played chess for 30 years and coached private chess lessons for 20 years. I can teach basic, intermediate and advance chess in manual as well as in computer base. The lessons involve: 1. memorizing moves visually and by formula; 2. chess puzzles and problem solving; 3. selected moves from grand masters; and 4. brief history of chess.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated as a primary teacher from the University of New South Wales, Australia. I have taught Math (grades K -10) and other subjects at Sydney Public Schools. In USA, I have worked as a substitute teacher all grades and subjects at Cambridge and Arlington Public Schools. In 2011, I received my state certification for middle school Math teacher.

I received a bachelor degree in Multidisciplinary studies in Cambridge College. I am capable of providing variety of methods and levels of teaching that match the requirements of the school and students. I will make sure all of my students can benefit from adequate resources, lessons and motivations.
Currently, I am getting my MED in middle/high school social studies at UMASS Boston.

I have been teaching and tutoring Farsi to English speakers (both adult and children) since 1996. I have also thought Persian culture and poetry in number of Institutions and have involved in organizing considerable number of Persian cultural events. Throughout this experience I have developed a method to teach Farsi language and culture using easy and enjoyable techniques in which it is compatible to the latest language teaching methods

Geometry

I have a strong background in geometry including variety of strategy and problem solving techniques that can facilitate learning significantly. Most of my students have been able to succeed in the school tests as well as nation wide exams.

I have been coaching soccer for the last 16 years (to age 6-18 years old children and all levels of Basic, Intermediate and advance). I assisted coaching GU14-17 at F C Fusion which competes in Massachusetts premiere league division one. I also co-coach u-14 girls at Cambridge Soccer Club. In addition, I have experienced co-coaching with AC Milan Youth Coaches at an Arlington Summer Soccer Camp. Currently I coaching for Boston Soccer Academy which runs clinics and summer camps as well as Lexington United. Both Clinics are run by professional coaches. I provide one to one coaching drills that are helpful to elevate the individual skill level and techniques.

I have taught middle/high school social studies on contract basis. At the moment I am getting my Master of Education with focus on Middle/high social studies.

I have been playing and coaching volleyball for the last 20 years. I admire the game and I believe there are methods for everyone to learn the sport in easy and fun way. I coach basics, intermediate and advance volleyball skills (indoor/outdoor) to groups as well as individuals.
