I am Fayeza Nabawi. If you ask my mother about me, she would enthusiastically say: “Oh, she could talk properly when she was only eleven months old”. Although, my speaking at very young age does not seem so extraordinary to me as much as it does to my mother, I guess it is what made me interested in learning new languages. Therefore, before I start learning English at the age of fourteen, I learned Pashtoo, and an elementary Arabic, in addition to my native language, Farsi. In two years or some, after I was somehow sure of my English proficiency, I restarted practicing Arabic. Currently, I am learning Russian, besides doing my bachelor of health sciences.
Me as a Teacher
In my view, teaching is not only a job, it is what I am meant to be doing. Listening to my students
awkwardly pronouncing new words is my greatest joy. But passion alone is not enough to do a perfect
job. Therefore, I have worked on my teaching skills through participating in seminars and empowerment
programs. I have succeeded to build a successful approach of teaching, using student-based methods. I
believe an enjoyable environment is more productive to both the teacher and the student, and enables
them both to exchange their knowledge. In addition, I think a language instructors’ duty is not restricted
to study plans
My lessons & teaching style
I believe not all people can take advantage of the same teaching style. They are different. So I
usually try to adopt the appropriate style special to my student, after asking her/him questions about
her/his studying habits. But a student-based method, which requires students to be more active, is
fundamental. I believe flexible strategies are the most productive.

Had a great class with Fayeza! I felt comfortable and she explained things very clearly. It was great so I immediately purchased a package to go ‘all-in’.

Fayeza exemplifies an exceptionally patient and gentle tutoring style, making the learning experience truly enjoyable. Her profound knowledge of language extends beyond Dari, encompassing a thorough understanding of grammar and grammatical terms. Through her guidance, I am not only acquiring proficiency in Dari but also rediscovering and learning grammar concepts that I had either forgotten or never been exposed to before. I would recommend her if you are planning to learn the languages she teaches.
