About Maryam

Hey there !

My name is Maryam and posses two separate undergrad degrees in Computer Science and business. Graduated high school at age only 16, I have studied both abroad and in US.
I come from a very diverse background and have worked with large number of international and American students and interns.
The diversity of my past clients enabled me to develop the skills to deliver personalized teaching approach to each individual based on their unique personality. My know-how to design and conduct workshops and interactive materials for students would enable me to produce excellent results each and every time.

I offer an hour of "Let's Get to Know Each Other First!" session at NO COST to all new students. During the first 45 minutes of this introductory session, I simply get to know my students and their personalities so they, themselves can help me uncover their weaknesses and strengths.
For adult and Language students: The remaining 15 minutes of the introductory class is dedicated to discussing their career goals, restrictions and their expectations of the program.
For Elementary, Middle School and High School students, this 15 minutes is spent with parents and their expectations (optional for parents to participate).
Within 36 hours of the introductory class, in addition to the recap of the conducted evaluation, students and/or parents will also receive a guided curriculum customized to meet their goal and to ensure outstanding learning process.

A little about me:

I am a native Farsi speaker and have worked as a translator for 3 years, Having taken the DLPT test twice before (once for the Department of Army and the Homeland Security) I have an extensive knowledge to properly guide my students to overcome the challenges to not only pass the DLPT test successfully but also to have the confidence to interact and engage in various Farsi conversation with most confidence.
You will benefit from a unique teaching approach that is implemented by myself and perfected over years of teaching to maximize the learning experience focused on the simple concept of "human interaction".

Success story: My students with no Farsi background have passed DLPT at level 2 (listening) and level 3 (reading) in less than 6 months (attending classes for no more than 4 hours/week)

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.


I was an international student myself 7 years ago, I took ESL classes and passed them with A+ from MCCC, I later one took English composition I, II and III with grades B+ or higher.


I was born and raised in Iran, so Farsi is my native language. I completed my high school in Iran and then moved to the U.S where I graduated from the District of Columbia with a bachelors in business administration. I have years of experience in Farsi that enable me to assist my students with conversation skills, grammar, syntax skills and also modern Persian literature.

I have taken the DLPT test and have a great knowledge of it, with which I can assist my students.
