About Marjan

Dear Parents
Having lived abroad, as every body else in this situation, I have perceived that becoming a fluent speaker – so called near native speaker - is rarely a realistic goal. Needless to say that English Instructors as the facilitators of this hard process take a heavy responsibility to help the language learners by all means. Considering that I myself have always been in this track, I have a good command of methods and nuances for dealing with this problem. Eleven years of working as an English teacher and lecturer has made me able to interact with all types of students’ characters and flexible in educational settings. I have always been encouraged by my supervisors and received great feed backs from my students which always made me interested in continuing this career. Teaching and tutoring at different levels from elementary school to Bachelor’s level has ensured my abilities to cover all courses pertaining to English for both adults and children. Inasmuch as I have been raised and educated in a different culture I am completely familiar with culture differences and dealing with students from diverse communities.
Understanding the teaching methodologies which are constantly being developed provides some insights for the instructors to choose them according to their students’ needs. Although Communicative Language Teaching Method, is the most accepted method these days, I personally believe in an eclectic method of teaching. Whether to choose audio-lingual method, grammar translation method, communicative method or a mixture of them depends on different factors such as the purpose of teaching and learning, the students’ mother tongue and even their learning abilities. Communicative language teaching received more attention in most of the courses I have taught because it led to creating a natural setting in the classroom and improved the students’ self confidence for effective communications. An important facet of my teaching philosophy is to provide a comfortable, non-threatening environment for all students. By making the content of the lessons more applicable to the students’ lives, the instructor creates the appropriate, effective environment necessary for second language acquisition.

Last but not least, one of the good points I have always been adored for is my time management skill and solution finding ability. In response to your search for an English tutor, I believe that my experience in English teaching, and my interaction skills qualify me for consideration.
Sincerely,
Marjan G.
