I spent my whole life in Iran. I have my Bachelor's of Arts in Persian Language and Literature and my Master's of Art in Applied Linguistics (Teaching Persian to non-Persian students)from Iran. I have taught Farsi for more than ten years while I worked as a researcher on Iranian languages and dialects. So,Farsi is NOT just my NATIVE LANGUAGE. It is my Field of education and my interest. Being a native speaker does not make somebody proficient in their language; and, it is not enough for teaching a language. It is necessary to have linguistic knowledge about syntax, semantics, morphology, phonology and pragmatics for teaching a language. In all languages there are some exceptions and many rules that being aware of them will help student to progress in target language fast. I have linguistic knowledge of Farsi's structure and about how this language actually works. I explain all linguistic rules as its needed to give my students a perfect picture of what they are learning. My teaching plan is based on a linguistic approach and communicative method.

A Great Teacher!

Marzieh was a great Farsi tutor. She took time to determine what skill level I was and then tailored our lesson to my level. She came to the lesson prepared with videos and news articles to work on. She was patient and really cared about my progress.

McCrae, 6 lessons with Marzieh

I enjoy every bit of each lesson.

In a few lessons she helped me to understand better the structure of the Persian language. She is a native speaker, also she knows the language, that's a plus when she teaches. Thanks Marzieh!

Tomas, 16 lessons with Marzieh

Great tutor.

Marzieh is great - she is very knowledgable about Persian grammar, not only because it is her native language but because she has studied it. This linguistics spin on the lessons is very helpful to me, as she can often explain why something is the way it is, which can be very difficult even for native speakers to explain. She is professional and punctual, and always pleasant and helpful.

Ashley, 46 lessons with Marzieh
Tutor responded:

I'm really appreciative of your professional comment as a linguist and teacher, Ashley. Your high knowledge of linguistics and teaching language makes teaching easier and more enjoyable for me. I hope I can work harder to compensate the lack of reliable and perfect language materials for Farsi which obviously makes hard teaching and learning for both teacher and student.

A fantastic friendly/easy to work with tutor.

Marzieh is a fantastic teacher. She is able to adjust her pace depending on how you are responding to the lessons. She is friendly and it is always a pleasure to meet her. Due to her education in linguistics she is also able to identify problems that you have in learning the language right and is able to adjust her teaching style according to that. Whether you would like to start Persian from the scratch or are at intermediate level, she is perfect for you and worth all the time, effort and money you spend on it.

Appreciate Hina. That's very kind of you. I do what I'm supposed to do. It's not just me. You have a great motivation and enthusiasm for learning and these two motivate me to do my best and accelerate the learning process.
