italki teacher since May 31, 2022
I am Maiwand, originally from Afghanistan. I lived in Pakistan for four years before returning to Afghanistan. For the past six years, I have been residing in Turkey. I am proficient in Pashto, Dari, and Turkish. In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, swimming, and spending time with my family. I am also passionate about making new connections and exploring diverse cultures and languages globally.
Me as a Teacher
I'm patient and calm, I understand that language learning can be nerve-wracking and make some feel anxious. Due to this, I want to assure you that whether you are timid or shy we can still work together because I was like that at the beginning with learning languages. I don't judge your proficiency I just want to help you!
My lessons & teaching style
My lesson style depends on the student's needs. I deliver what you need and your specific goals by personalizing lessons and making them more fun to learn. We cover topics that are of interest to keep the conversation going. I believe speaking is the best method to learn a language, after that grammar and vocabulary come naturally.

This comes from someone who is a teacher and who tried 2 Pashto teachers before and had to give up on them because they were either not professional enough or they did not tailor the class. Maiwand is a very kind teacher, knows very well English and has a very good knowledge of Pashto. He is very helpful and determined to make you learn by repeating and explaining everything. I really highly recommend him and I will continue learning with him moving forward. Thanks for finally finding my perfect teacher!!!

Very useful first lesson. Maiwand is a motivating teacher and I found it great that he used English as less as possible an Dari as much as possible. Looking forward to our next lesson.
