italki teacher since Feb 11, 2016
I was born and raised trilingual in Tehran (Iran). I would love to teach Farsi, English and Spanish to people who are interested in them. I have studied and I can speak various languages (Farsi, English, Italian, Spanish, Korean, Japanese and Dutch among others) throughout my life and I can easily say I know how different languages work and what makes them “tick” which makes me a unique teacher.
Me as a Teacher
I’ve been teaching Farsi, English and Spanish since 2009. After teaching different students and trying various methods, I have come to believe everyone learns through their own unique way. Therefore, I would love to take the time to understand how my students learn and to use that knowledge to expedite their improvement. I am a very sociable person and my students have mostly found it easy to communicate with me which makes me a perfect teacher for discussion and conversation classes.
My lessons & teaching style
In Farsi classes, we will focus on your speaking skills first. I will help you build your confidence and create a proper vocabulary base. There will be naturalistic conversations where we will extract the grammar points and use them to make sentences. You don't have to start learning how to write using Persian alphabet from the get-go if you don't want to, we can use the transliteration! I will also provide you with comprehension tasks where you will read a text and answer questions. Furthermore, you will listen to graded conversations and, when you feel more confident, watch video excerpts from movies! A little bit of everything to make it fun! and of course...

Fantastic fantastic first class!! Yashar moved at just the right pace - I felt not a single moment was wasted! Many analogies were drawn between languages to help me contextualize the role of each connector/pronoun/conjugation. Could not have asked for more. I'm now very pumped to be taking on "mission impossible". Let's set the record for both, and then top it off with that long awaited paper ;).

Yashar is a fantastic teacher! I've been studying with him for less than a year, and I've gone from having zero Farsi to understanding complex sentence structures and advanced verb tenses. He is sharp at discerning a student's proficiency level and areas of weakness, and he comes up with creative, effective exercises to strengthen those areas. He's also flexible and accommodating. And on top of all that, classes with him are fun! You will laugh a lot and learn a ton. (That wasn't meant to rhyme.)
