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

Mr. G goes over and above to help me pursue my interests. He helped me sing through a difficult time while my voice was changing. He supports me at performances and never fails to make me laugh. Working with him has been a fantastic experience and I feel that I have grown so much.

Hi there! Learning a language doesn't have to be hard and frustrating, I promise it can be easy, fun, and extremely rewarding. I've been a Spanish tutor for about 5 years, I'm Mexican-American, I grew up with the Spanish language at home, and I took a Spanish minor in college. My lessons aren't focused on grammar rules and lists of vocabulary -- I have a more unconventional approach, and I promise that I'll help the language make sense for you! My lessons are very comfortable and laid-back, based mainly around conversation, and I'm happy to tailor them to any specific areas that you want to work on. I've worked with straight-up beginners, intermediate, and even very advanced students. All ages/levels are welcome, I'd love to help you improve your Spanish!

Most people only teach the grammatical when trying to teach Spanish, But honestly, as a Spanish native speaker, this only makes it harder when you are first starting. Also, I can help you to amplify the vocabulary in the area that you need the most, while making it easy and fun!

About Claudia

I am a native Spanish speaker, from Venezuela. Spanish students can expect to improve week to week in their communicational skills.

I'm energetic with a good sense of humor. Learning with me is fun because I help students discover the language at their own pace. I also remind them that making mistakes is a natural part of learning, and that it isn't bad at all to make them.
I encourage them to speak as much as possible and learn from a variety of sources like movies, songs and books!
My students and I have a friendly relationship and they can ask their questions when they want.
I can help students prepare for tests like IELTS, or Cambridge ESOL examinations like Cambridge B2, or C1 as well as improve their general English proficiency.
My lessons go beyond classroom. They help students communicate in the real world and make friends or do business with people from different nationalities.

About Kaykavoos

My name is Kay and I am a CELTA-qualified English teacher with almost 10 years of teaching experience. I'm also certified to teach IELTS and Cambridge English C1 (CAE). My students have been extremely successful in achieving their aims. They are highly motivated and work hard to realize their dream

Alright, I've taken courses with this teacher for such long time and it's been perfect! The class interaction, teacher's vast knowledge and his experience, will give you such a nice impression and you'll love the class. All in all, I really suggest him as your instructor if you really want to learn English!
yalda
I've been taking English classes since I was nine and Kaykavoos is hands down one of the best teachers I have ever had. He is more like your friend than a teacher and makes learning enjoyable and fun. He was always available to answer our questions even after the class. I learned a lot from him and his amazing methods.
Niloofar
Undoubtedly he is the most energetic teacher that i’ve had in my whole life. He is creative and updated and Learning English doesn’t seem so hard in his class. He pays attention to his students individually so student like me (a bit shy) can’t stand a chance to evade asking questions. His passion to teach and showing us eagerness and encouragement can motivate any kind of students. You can experience joy and learn a lot simultaneously at his class

"I'm really enjoying my lessons with Yuexin. She's very patient and is able to answer all my questions. She's also happy to customize the lesson to suit my interests; for example, we took some time to go over voice lines in a video game that were in Chinese and then work on the pronunciation and pinyin for them.

The textbook and workbook she had me get have been helpful, and I've been supplementing by practicing on my own using Duolingo. I think the combination has been really effective for learning the language. Yuexin has been great for correcting my pronunciation and teaching me how native speakers would actually speak and write."
