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 G.

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 State University. I have also done IELTS tutoring and proofreading of students' writings at both undergraduate and graduate levels.

I have extensive experience in both face-to-face and online instruction, and have taught diverse student populations in a variety of subjects. While I teach all language skills, I am an expert in teaching English grammar and writing as well as conversational Farsi. I am also specialized in IELTS and have helped many students succeed in their IELTS exams.

Given my background as an international student and instructor, I have a deep understanding and appreciation for the world's linguistic and cultural diversity and have the ability to work effectively with people from different languages and cultures. In addition to a never-ending love for languages, I love and admire works of art. My hobbies include painting and practicing my language skills in Spanish and Turkish.

I love learning and teaching languages, and always do my best to identify my students' specific needs and learning styles before designing lessons for them. I am always available to speak with you and see how I can contribute in your learning process. Send me a message and let's connect today!

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.

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!

Mrs. Bahareh is a real asset to any course she teaches. She is one of the most accomplished,
dedicated, and hardworking colleagues and friends I have had the pleasure to meet, interact, and work with. Her
extremely positive energy, enthusiasm for life, and excellent communication skills make her the perfect
candidate for any teaching job/task she performs; in addition to her many academic and professional accomplishments. I highly
recommend her for any student looking for an English/ESL or Farsi language instructor or mentor.

Bahareh has immensely helped me improve my skills in English as a second language! She is very knowledgeable and extremely patient. After many lessons that I took with her, I still send her my writings to proofread. She always provides detailed feedback and is available to explain things if I need further assistance. Highly recommend her if you need help with your English!
