Salam, My name is Frida. I graduated from the University of Tehran with a Master’s degree in Farsi Language. Since 2009, I have been working as a Farsi instructor at the university, schools, and Modern languages and immigration institutes. I have taught the Farsi language to students from different countries like China, England, Canada, and the United States.
Farsi is my native language, and I have been teaching it to (both non-native speakers of Persian [Farsi] and third-generation kids of Persian/non-Persian mixed families. I have been able to synergize my years of experience as a linguist, language teacher, and a material producer to create my own lessons with the goal to gradually wean students off of English/Persian and Penglish texts to full-fledged Persian ones.
How I structure classes:
1) discuss your goals, strengths, and weaknesses
2) create a personalized lesson plan for you based on your learning style
3) provide feedback and optional homework to help you accomplish your goals

I have been taking Farsi lessons from Frida for the last couple of months. She is professional, punctual, and always prepared. Her lessons are engaging, and I feel I am making progress thanks to her help. I really appreciate her attentiveness and look forward to continuing lessons with her!
Frida has been an fun, patient, and very understanding tutor for Farsi. I have learned so much from proper grammar to quick conversational practice. She's very courteous and more than happy to explain and go over a topic with you. I have never been more excited to learn more about this beautiful language and can't wait to reach a level of fluency. I definitely recommend her!
Frida is an extremely knowledgeable and talented teacher, my 8 years old son loves her! He is more than willing to do his homework in anticipation of the next meeting! We highly recommend Frida and are very happy to have found her!
My daughter likes Frida. They accomplish a lot every lesson, while keeping my daughter engaged in learning Spanish. Frida is also well organized and always arrives on time for her lessons.
