Engaging tutor! I learn so much in each class!

Zahra is an excellent tutor and it is evident in the delivery of her lessons. She is patient, is passionate about her language and Persian culture, and does a great job modifying the pace of her teaching to fit one's learning curve. With any trouble areas, she always makes sure to take the extra time to explain and review. Even though I have not studied Farsi long, Zahra is aware on my goal to take the government DLPT in Farsi in the near future, and in each lesson she steers me closer to that goal! I highly recommend her!

Amazing teacher

Zahra is the best Farsi teacher I've had. I was a DLI student then worked with different tutors throughout the years. Zahra focuses on speaking ability and knows how to work with adults. My Farsi knowledge has increased dramatically since beginning with Zahra 2 months ago.

Extremely Accommodating Tutor!

Zahra is fantastic! I've only had 3 sessions with her, but she creates lesson plans specific to my goals and is very patient in explaining vocabulary and grammar points. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Patient and Adapts to Individual Needs

Although I've only been working with Zahra for a short time, I've already made good progress. She's very adaptable to my personal goals. She has made a sincere effort to assess my capabilities, weigh those strengths against my weaknesses, and develop lesson plans that are individualized. This is exactly why I sought a tutor. Based on our sessions, I know she can work with students at any level.

A truly fantastic tutor!

I have been meeting with Zahra for about one and a half months now and I have truly enjoyed every lesson that I have had with her. She is a very friendly, caring, experienced and effective tutor. She is not only very knowledgeable and passionate about the Farsi language, but she also loves teaching it. And this passion and knowledge comes through during every lesson. She is also very flexible and is more than willing to tailor your tutoring sessions to your individual needs. Each class with her is really an enjoyable experience and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a Farsi tutor in the DMV area.

Knowledgeable, patient and organized

I have been working with Zahra for a couple of weeks, and it has been a real pleasure so far. Zahra has always shown up on time, is sweet and patient during lessons, and spots improvement areas very rapidly. Her explanations about the Farsi language are always clear and show experience in teaching. By continuing with Zahra, I expect to continue progressing quickly.

Pleased with my progress

I have been meeting with Zahra for about a month and I am pleased with my progress. She is very friendly, sweet, and experienced, and clearly knows what she is doing.

Steven, 11 lessons with Zahra

All around amazing!

Zahra is very well educated and knowledgeable with the Farsi language. She knows how to make learning fun, but at the same time highly effective. She is always on time and very responsive and flexible if you need to change your lesson date or time. I couldn't have asked for a better Farsi teacher. I'll be forever grateful for what she has taught me!

Skilled teacher

Zahra is excellent at using conversation as a teaching tool, ensuring that one is spoken to at a level one can understand while progressively challenging one with more complex vocabulary and sentences. She was a great help with my grammar and vocab and tailored the classes for my particular needs (initially, reading.) Additionally, she replied promptly initially and remained super-responsive when communicating.

Andrew, 2 lessons with Zahra

Top notch tutor!

I really enjoyed working with Zahra, because I found her to be kind, professional, and knowledgeable. She was able to the make the language easily accessible and used straightforward exercises that really helped with my comprehension. I would definitely work with her in the future. You will not regret working with her!
