A few words from the teacher:

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to improve. I want you to put time and be great at what you do. I truly love all my students and I want your happiness. As of teaching goes, I'll make sure to meet all your needs but it's you who can make a difference. I don't believe in talent , I believe in hard work and practice. everybody is born with the same blank canvas it's what you draw on it over time that matters.If you let me know that you have other things than music or you're maybe busy to practice a lot, I'll give less things to practice after every 3 month ( what I call a semester) you can choose songs to record in my home studio. I don't have a fancy studio but I have enough equipment to record and edit demo songs. I'd love my students to participant in talent shows and I'm always looking to put you out there in the real world of music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Anything a student and their parents might need.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my guitar to accompany but the student needs to also provide their own instrument. I will also need the voice students to have a keyboard or a piano as a lot of voice technique exercises need the piano accompaniment.

*** Specialties ***
I'm professionally an electric guitarist.. Started with classic guitar and then changed genre to rock and metal and then started exploring jazz but I consider myself a rock solo guitarist with some spices of jazz and i still play classical. I'm also a pop/rock singer with flavors of jazz and I've been singing classic music as well.

She is kind, patient, flexible, and most importantly she listens to what your desires are and adjusts her style to meet those needs. She is also very good at explaining the importance of traditional exercises and does an excellent job of presenting those in a way that is a very comfortable way to learn.

While studying at ARC I bumped into Maryam. Upon realizing that she was a music major the topic quickly escalated to focus of degree. At the time, composition was what Maryam was pursuing. After listening to some of her creations, I realized that I had never seen such talent at a junior college. Selecting Maryam from the rest of the pack will forever change yours and your child's lives. She is a fine musician and is very easy to talk to. All the while songwriting and composing is her specialty and she is the best that I know.

Mojy is BEST INSTRUCTOR EVER, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Persian Languages and teaching. She is very positive and wouldn't let you go to the next step before she makes sure you have learned what you need with fun and enthusiasm. She is very educated and learned about both Persian language and culture. She has a great understanding of the students' needs. Well, She is very pushy, but that is what we need to pass DLPT . I would not have GOTTEN 3/3+ if I would not have had Mojy for my teacher. Go Mojy! ;)

Mojy is by far the most qualified and talented language instructor I have ever had. After a week of class it was clear that she was an instructor that was on a completely different level than my instructors in the past. While under her instruction i vastly improved in every facet of my language, both in skill and in confidence. Her class room provides a relaxed but highly focused environment, and she genuinely cares about her student's success. If you give her your attention and effort then you will not be disappointment with the results.

After seven years' experience in Farsi I hit a proficiency plateau, but Mojy's customized and attentive instruction got my scores up to an ILR Level 3 in reading and 2+ in listening- my best scores ever! I can't recommend her highly enough. She knows what material works and how to explain complex grammatical concepts effectively. Best teacher ever!

I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes after I began to work as a Nurse at a Los Angeles Nursing Home, where Farsi is the first language of most of the patients as well as some of the doctors and nurses.
Even though it's only two months since I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes, I can enthusiastically say that I can now communicate with the patients and medical staff in Farsi. I definitely recommend Farangis.

Learning a new language is to enter the world of one's unacquainted cultures for which the learner should have a great enthusiasm. Farsi, the language of a great civilization, which, to this day, stands on its own aesthetical values, historical duration and significant influence on vast ranges of great people from Johann von Goethe to Alexander Pushkin, from Thomas Moore to Friedrich Nietzsche and from Abraham Lincoln to F. Scott Fitz Gerald, has been opening to the eyes of mankind, views of unique vistas of artistic literature and horizons of reviving poetical beauty.
Learning Farsi, for those who want not to deprive themselves of a great and prominent artistic beauty and for those who want to be the everlasting young green leaves by keeping their connections to their roots; is a great opportunity to bring their wishes to life.
I have been teaching Farsi literature since I was in high school; never for money though, and I have had more than a hundred satisfying successes in teaching ...

About Sina
Learning a new language is to create a pathway to one's unacquainted cultures, to which the learner ought to be eager; and this is the only prerequisite for such purpose. Talent, attention and dedication, all, come afterwards.
An eager learner, never feels incompetent or alone; with a dedicated teacher who can make him/her relaxed, fully attentive and innovative.
We, all, have unique ways of expressing ourselves, by using the same pool of words; which is what makes the concept of language a distinctive invention.
This has been the essence of teaching Farsi for me. To make each learner use Farsi as a unique effective tool of self-expression.
I started teaching Farsi literature to my juniors when I was 10 and ever since that has been one of my pleasures, which I kept doing during all past years. Having more than 10000 verses in different
styles of Farsi classic poetry, editing books, articles, writing for amateur and professional newspapers, I have had learners of expanded range of age, education, and knowledge of Farsi, from illiterates to university students; all of whom eventually performed greatly.
The key was, to make them self-sufficient and independent by encouraging them find out, how they interpret the concept of language, and from then on, they had the joy of learning what they wanted to learn, facing challenges they loved to face, and the self-satisfaction anyone needs.
30 years of continuous learning, teaching and evaluating my students on different subjects, had shown me that whatever a human creates, can be taught, and whatever can be taught, can be learned.
In my teaching method, depending on the learner's age, goal, education, status of Farsi understanding and dedicated free time to study, different schedules will be set; and different tasks will be executed. The environment in which the learner will be trained surrounds his/her goals, and the expectations never surpass the abilities. It will be exclusively topic-related, which means learner will not be dealing with tasks outside of their functionality; so that anything taught, could be easily memorized.
The first session includes a free 15 minutes acquaintance, during which areas of interest in my teaching and learner's goals will be assessed to be sufficient, and then educational process proceeds.
At last, regardless of your choice of educator, learning Farsi is a great way of spending your time and effort to gain some valuable practical knowledge which makes you proud of knowing it.

I’m a native Persian/farsi speaker! I grew up in Iran and graduated from high school in 2008. Whether you would like to learn farsi to speak to your Persian friend or visit Iran or perhaps you would like to learn how to read those crazy lines that you saw in a book, I can teach you from the beginning all the way up to advanced level. Lessons are being taught in a simple way which any foreign speaker can understand and learn in the shortest period of time!

About Mark
I was born in Iran and after graduating from high school, I moved to turkey for a year before coming to United States. It was hard at the beginning since I didn’t know any English, then I began going to library to read English books during the day and at night I used to go out and make new American friends to practice on my English. After 2 years I was fluent in speaking and by end of fifth years in United States , I completed a book in English and published it on amazon kindle.
I currently write novel in my free time and teach languages. I’m fluent in both English and Farsi/Persian and I can read Arabic texts, as well as Turkish and Farsi which is my native language.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask!
