My tutoring approach:
My Persian/Farsi language classes are conducted at my home and on Skype, seven days a week. And there you'll find that my tutoring method makes it so much fun to learn the beautiful Persian language which is so pleasing to the ear. I use video / audio files and texts as well as I provide engaging homework.

About Farangis

I'm an enthusiastic and certified tutor of my native Persian/Farsi with 6 years of professional experience. I have 2 M.A. degrees in Creative Writing and Literature.

Depending on the student's need, you can expect a more customized work agenda in order to assist the student to reach the goal. We work together during the tutoring time and the student can expect to get some "homework" to maintain the lesson fresh. (Unless the student is getting help with an already existing class, then we follow the guideline of the class as our path to success)

About Cindy

Cindy's extensive knowledge of Spanish was clear from the start. English is her second language but my children couldn't tell. She has an excellent way of breaking down Spanish for children and adults (I listened in and learned a couple of phrases).

Making students feel their second language is useful is key when being in an ESL class. That is why I focus on making my classes related to their needs and preferences. I find also important talking about real life issues to promote giving opinions and enriching their vocabulary. Moreover, I know that most online ESL students have a tight schedule so instead of focusing fully on grammar perfection I try to motivate them to watch videos and discuss what they saw or understood from them and to answer online tasks related to the topic to make it more interactive.

About Karla

I enjoy teaching English because I get to see my students' progress and help them become better speakers while having fun discovering a new version of themselves. I see speaking another language as acting, you just have to try it to find out, and sometimes improvising and making a fool of yourself

I've known Karla since a long time ago, and I can say that she is a great, dedicated teacher. In addition to this, I've had the chance to be her co-worker at the same language school, and she constantly tries to look for the best ideas and method to implement in her classes. I'm sure you will learn a lot with her as your teacher, as I have!

The best teacher I've had so far! Always challenging and looking for new ways to improve my English. Professional, pays attention to details.

"I have been taking private Japanese classes with Emi S. for one year and a half. Before I started she asked me whether I wanted to focus on just the conversational side of Japanese or the complete knowledge of the language including kanji. For me it was all.

She is proud of her heritage and enjoys talking about Japan and her culture, which makes the class even more enjoyable. She is dedicated, enthusiastic and organized.

I am sure that with her help I will be able to meet my goal of one day passing the JLTP N1.

I recommend her for classes of any level."
