About Saiena

I am passionate about teaching Farsi (Persian) to students at all levels. I have an extensive background in teaching languages and tutoring different subjects. I have recently started working as an attorney in NYC. I have worked in different legal settings both in Iran and the U.S. I have translated legal and non legal documents from English to Farsi and Farsi to English. I also have a bachelor's degree in political science and international studies and was involved in different tutoring programs during college.

I was born and raised in Iran and I am a native Farsi (Persian) speaker. In Iran, I spent many years tutoring and teaching English courses to young students. Also, I have taught languages to the Roma community and newly settled refugees in Europe. Experience has shown me that it is important to keep the students engaged and interested in the lessons. I use a variety of methods in my teaching practice and I believe diversity of topics is useful in learning a new language.

I am also approved to tutor in other subjects such as English, Law, Literature, Proofreading, Criminal Justice, Political Science, and Writing.

I am generally available for tutoring on the weekdays and the weekends. My rate is $50 an hour.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you learn Farsi!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Criminal Justice

I have received a juris doctor degree and have taken criminal justice and criminal law classes. I have also interned and clerked with public defender offices.

English

I have extensive experience in tutoring different English students and supervising research paper projects.

Farsi

I am a native Farsi speaker. I have completed my elementary and secondary education in Farsi. I have also translated many different international and legal documents from English to Farsi and Farsi to English. In addition, I have experience tutoring in English and Farsi.

Political Science

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. I have taken numerous political science classes throughout my undergraduate education. I have also participated in different political science related activities such as Model United Nations and have tutored this subject.

Proofreading

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I have experience tutoring and proofreading different types of documents for all age groups.

Public Speaking

I have presented mock oral arguments in different moot court competitions where I had to speak for at least 15 minutes and answer questions during or after my presentation. I have also competed in mock trial competitions where I presented a defense case and won the award for best cross examination. During my legal career, I have argued different cases in front of the judge and the court. In addition, I have tutored law students in perfecting their public speaking techniques.
