Hello!

My name is Tina and I enjoy tutoring! I am currently a Language and Literature tutor. I can also teach English for Farsi speakers. I speak Farsi, English, some Arabic, some French and a little bit of Urdu.

I am a free thinker and creative teacher. I used to teach English to teenagers and adults back in Iran; I am still in touch with my former students, as I am interested in what they are doing and how far they have made progress with whatever I taught them. My students are also my friends and I adjust my teaching method to their particular needs and talents.

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!]

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.
