Hello!

I am doctor Tina and I enjoy tutoring :) I am currently a language teacher, creative writer, and translator of specialized texts. I speak Farsi, English, Spanish, basic Arabic, basic French, and some Urdu.

I started working as an online tutor with international students over a decade ago and eventually launched my own tutoring business. I have taught Farsi to hundreds of young and old students coming from all corners of the world (all the seven continents minus Antarctica!)

I am quite intuitive regarding what method to use with each new student in order to speed up the learning process for him or her. Students come to my class with their particular needs, reasons, and learning styles. My job is to pinpoint these and adjust my method accordingly in order to optimize their learning experience.

If you are looking for a relaxed, fun, creative and highly efficient tutor who knows what she is doing and won’t waste your time, money and energy, you have landed on the right page :)

Farsi

I am a native-speaker of Farsi (Persian), born and raised in Tehran, Iran, I have been a tutor of Farsi (Persian) for about a decade now and have worked on many Farsi projects for reputable companies such as Google, Rosetta Stone and Living Language. I also hold a PhD in Communication which makes me quite creative with my teaching strategies... I am able to connect to my students effectively and pinpoint their natural manner of learning with ease, usually within two or three sessions. I am always looking forward to meeting new students and working with them, so... be kelaas-am khosh aamadid! [Welcome to my class!]

Absolutely Wonderful!

I reached out to Tina after seeing some of her videos and reading other reviews. I am Iranian and wanted to continue to improve my Farsi. Tina was very warm, friendly, and professional. She spent time gauging my current proficiency and we discussed my goals. I ended my session feeling even more excited about the possibilities for achieving my goals with Tina’s help. Tina is a natural teacher and I truly cannot say enough positive things to summarize how much I appreciated and valued my time with Tina. I am very much looking forward to continuing my journey with her help. If you’re looking for a Farsi tutor, look no further - Tina is the complete package!

Exceptionally knowledgeable, personable and patient tutor

Tina has helped me tremendously in preparing for an intermediate-level Persian-English translation exam. She is very kind, flexible, always encouraging and patient. She is a wonderful teacher... I cannot recommend her highly enough! Tina, thank you for all your help! Mamnun!

Tina was calm and patient, yet we covered a good deal of material in a very effective manner. Highly recommended.

If you want a tutor, look no further- Tina’s classes are the way to go.

In the beginning of my lessons, I was terribly nervous and didn’t know what to expect. Initially, my goal was to learn basic Farsi so that I could say a few phrases in my wedding vows and perhaps have some understanding of the language of my in laws. Not only was I able to say my vows within less than (12) one-hour sessions, but I also learned how to write the alphabet and reasonably sound out words to form phrases on my own. A few classes later and I am now conjugating verbs. Tina is a pure linguist at heart and has a bottomless depth of knowledge when it comes to languages, both formal and informal. She eased her way into lessons so that I was less anxious and taught at a pace that was not overwhelming, while recognizing my strengths and weaknesses so that I was able to build a firm foundation beyond saying my vows. She’s the perfect mix of fun personality and professionalism that makes learning a language a positive experience. I’m on Pacific Standard Time and I’ve had no difficulty arranging classes. In sum, her teaching style worked for me and I imagine she applies her techniques to whatever subject she offers to instruct. I highly recommend Tina as a tutor and I absolutely look forward to continuing my lessons with her.
