I am a medical student and I really enjoyed Farangis's lessons, I found them very helpful and engaging! Even though learning a new language, in this case, Persian isn't excatly classified as a fun activity, she still managed to make the lessons something to look forward to. thank you

I took Farangis' class for business purposes. She understands the science of learning in a way no other teacher had before. I speak Mandarin and Spanish and I speak from experience.
Farangis knows my strengths and weaknesses and has provided content accordingly. I feel I'm making progress every time I take her class. And she drills me on things she knows I struggle with. So, be prepared!

Farangis is a supportive, encouraging, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic tutor. I am working on a project that requires me to brush up on my Persian (Farsi) fluency, and she has been exactly what I need to elevate me to the next level. I wholeheartedly recommend her for your linguistic needs!

Farangis is a fantastic Farsi Teacher. She explains very well and is able to
explain in more than one way if I can’t understand right away. I highly recommend her.

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.

Farangis is calm and pleasant to speak with and gives good feedback. She is very patient and gives you all the time you need to find the words in order to make sentences without feeling embarrassed or in a rush. I like her tuition and personality very much, and I feel very confident about improving my Farsi skills. Recommend her warmly:-)

Farangis's Farsi Lessons are perfect for my son. He has improved dramatically, not only in his Farsi studies, but also in his regular school studies. He is more outgoing now, loves doing his classwork, and is more motivated to do his homework. Farangis's Farsi lessons are the best of the best.

I like the fact that Farangis is very caring. She is willing to help my Son grow and learn Farsi at his own pace. She also values and respects my input as a Parent.

I'm taking Farangis' class for my job. She is by far the best teacher I've ever had. Looking back on my work from just last year, I realize how much stronger my speaking skills and vocabulary are. She is passionate, organized, and shares her lesson plan every week. Definitely, I'd recommend her.

I took this class for the last year to be able to converse with my gf. Farangis is so charming and funny that it doesn't feel like work at all. My gf broke up with me but I CONTINUED taking lessons!

Farangis is a terrific instructor! After only one class, I am now able to introduce myself and to say a few things about myself in Farsi. Her method of instruction is very effective in helping the student to memorize Farsi words and phrases. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn Farsi.

Farangis have been teaching my teenagers Farsi for the last 9 months, within the first three weeks, they were able to make conversations and we were all excited, she always brings entertainments and different activities to the classroom and it made my teens more interested and engaged. They can now read and write low intermediate and speak high intermediate, communicating with their grandparents and watch Iranian movies with them. She is a great teacher :)
