Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

As someone who needed to learn other languages, I can assist anyone whose native language is not English to become more proficient, improve their grammar, and gain better conversational skills.
One of my specialties is interview prep. I worked in IT, in marketing, and have an MBA, interviewed candidates and been interviewed myself - so I can share insights with my students.
However I also hold "regular conversation," while I listen attentively to my student, and correct grammar and style.

About Diane

Bonjour! Hello! Hallo! I teach several languages: French, German, and English for non-native English speakers. I tailor my lessons to each student's individual needs and I always go above and beyond the basic lesson, with follow up between lessons. I try to make learning a language fun and alive

I’m a native of Iran and have professional knowledge of Persian literature, history, and culture. I love teaching and introducing the rich language and culture of Iran to those who are interested. In addition to teaching speaking, listening, writing, and grammar, I provide lessons in Persian culture, poetry, and history. Because of my love for poetry, you will always hear some Persian poems from me here and there! :) I also love cooking Persian food and do provide my recipes to my students! :)

About Bahareh

I'm an enthusiastic tutor of English as a Second Language and my native Farsi (Persian) with over 15 years of professional experience. I have a PhD in Applied Linguistics/Translation Studies and a Masters in English Translation. I have taught ESL writing, grammar, reading, and speaking at Kent Stat

I was guessing when I selected Bahareh as my Farsi teacher, but my guess has turned out to be far far better than I ever expected. I am not your typical language student for various reasons, so I wasn't sure which teacher would be able or willing to accommodate my style or learning. Bahareh has been ideal for me. She is inventive, extremely well prepared, but so flexible that we are able to decide during the course of each lesson what we're going to focus on that week. She has provided me with materials both in writing and well as recordings of the materials we've covered in each lesson. For me, the aural materials are paramount, and without them I wouldn't have learned as much from her as I have. She has also contextualized the language in terms of contemporary Iranian culture and habits. Unlike other language resources that focus exclusively on literary, formal Farsi, with me she has emphasized the colloquial language. But, she's also made sure that I know the difference between the two. It's been a total pleasure working with her, and I've looked forward to our lessons each week. فعلاً خداحافظی می کنم ، اما شاید در آینده دوباره یکدیگر را ببینیم.
Mia Y.
Bahareh is the perfect language teacher for me! Not only is she an expert teacher, but she approaches learning in a relaxed, positive way. She has helped me build confidence with my Farsi in only 20 lessons. Plus, she has developed her own language-learning resources to help me continue to learn on my own time. She's organized, attentive to detail, and FUN! Che mo’allem khubi!

I will structure English lessons to your needs! Whatever issues you may have--grammar, pronunciation, basic vocabulary, or other--I will make that my focus. We will work together through games and small assignments, ranging in difficulty based on language level and attention span. I speak some German and French, but we will speak exclusively in English so you can get the practice you need!
