Hello! سلام! Здравствуйте! Salut!
I have a master’s degree in English Language and Literature. I’ve completed many hours of teacher’s training courses and workshops and taught over hundreds of English lessons. As a professional English teacher, I am familiar with the latest methods in teaching and learning English.
As a Persian teacher, I’m not just a native speaker. I know how to teach Persian as a foreign language. So, I can help you organize your Persian studies in the most efficient way. I can explain grammar, pronunciation, informal and formal language, etc. I’m from Tehran and I speak the standard Persian accent.
Me as a Teacher
To become really fluent in a language, you need to study it systematically. Your teacher should not only be familiar with the language but also know how to assess your level and plan your education based on your goals and ability. With my professional training as a language teacher, I can help you use your time to really move forward in your target language.
My lessons & teaching style
- Professional: I am a trained teacher. I have passed a teacher's training course as well courses in linguistics, phonology, grammar etc. I've participated in workshops and worked in language schools.
- Systematic: that means you study all four skills – speaking, listening, reading and writing – with the goal of fluency.
- Flexible: I have different methods and materials for different goals and preferences. We can read, do exercises, have free topic conversation, and any other type of lesson you want!
- Fun: I like to create a fun environment for my students in class; however I will be catching all of your weak areas and mistakes, too!

I’ve been studying Persian with Shahrzad for almost two years now and I am satisfied with each single class with her. I’ve mastered the grammar and now our focus is on expanding vocabulary and practicing everyday use of the language. Shahrzad is a great teacher, she has the patience and skill to explain all the nuances of the language.

I chose Shahrzad as a teacher when I needed to update my English skills, primarily for communicating at job interviews. She helped me compose answers to frequently asked questions, and together we tailored them to me personally, including the way I communicate (wording, articulation, my native accent, etc).
Then we practiced the answers. She was very helpful to control non-verbal communication (verbal fillings, tone of voice, etc.).
After mastering this part, she helped me with proper communication and responses to many questions about my CV, and taught me how to communicate some of the activities correctly in English. We continued to practice the basic questions too.
Every single hour went more than very pleasantly, and I appreciate that Shahrzad managed to be very subtle but unambiguous even in very lively discussions, I love hours with Shahrzad.

It's amazing that I've made great progress with Shahrzad's help. She has many different effective materials and methods depended on different situations. Always passionate, professional and patient. We've talked so many various topics among economy, environment, education, traveling, emotion, personality, etc. Shahrzad is willing to share her knowledge and experience with students, as talking with a close friend. For some grammar rules, I think she is even better than some native speaker~ Highly recommend!

I have been taking Farsi lessons with Shahrzad for a couple months now and highly recommend her! She is very friendly, polite, and encouraging. She was able to gauge my current level and make a lesson plan customized for my needs. She provides fun and informative lessons across a range of topics. I have already learned to read and improved my speaking skills, I'm excited to continue to work with her and become fully fluent!
