Information about Nafiseh
My lessons are based on standard conversational (informal) Persian spoken by mainly the middle-class educated people in Iran.
I teach in three beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels:
The beginner level is mostly focused on basic grammar and vocabularies and you will learn to make simple sentences and handle basic conversations.
In intermediate and advanced levels you will gradually learn more vocabularies, will make more sophisticated sentences and will be more confident in communication in Farsi.
In advance level you will have lessons on particular subjects such as cooking, weather, houses, cities etc and thus you will learn related vocabularies and slang.
All the lessons are designed and written by me and all are supported by plenty of examples from everyday life. I can simplify lessons using innovative tools and assessment criteria.
If you choose me as your tutor, not only you will learn Persian but you will also know about amazing Iranian culture,music, poetry and dance. You will never get bored during the lessons as I can also teach you singing some easy songs in Persian, we will talk about delicious Iranian food and will even listen to some Persian songs!!
I am very patient and friendly with my students and usually make a strong student-teacher bond with my students.
Please feel free to ask any questions. I will be glad to talk to you.
Thanks for reading my profile!

Experience: I have been teaching Farsi (Persian) on a one-to-one basis for over four years and to more than eighty individuals in private and in groups:
-I taught Persian to clergies and church workers in Manchester Language School in February: January-March 2018
- I was cultural advisor and voice coach for Taarof, a British-Iranian movie, directed by Alannah Georgiou: January-March 2018
- I am chosen to deliver Farsi courses to students at University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN)
- I am shortlisted as a lead Farsi tutor at University of Edinburgh
Amongst my students, there are a number of half-Iranians, individuals intending to travel to Iran, researchers and students on Iranian studies, people with personal connections to Iran as well as individuals who wish to learn Farsi for business objectives. I have delivered Farsi classes to people in senior management roles, civil servants and NGO workers. Further, I have a strong track record of providing short introductory sessions for those who plan to travel to the region.

Very good tutor
pushes you and tries to get the best out of you

Excellent tutor. Highly methodical approach, structured and tailored individually at a pace that encourages comprehensive development and learning. Emphasis on grammar and vocabulary building with clear examples. Delightful manner, relaxed and encouraging. It`s amazing how the language I wished to learn for so long is finally unraveling before me - aafareen :)
Nafiseh is a fantastic teacher she has excellent subject knowledge, she is well-prepared for each lesson, she provides very good learning materials and her manner is very pleasant, which encourages learning. Her lessons are delivered over Skype to me, and that works perfectly too.
Can`t recommend highly enough
Contacting Nafiseh has to be one of the best decisions I have ever made, I really can`t imagine being taught by anybody else.
Nafiseh is very professional and well organised and this comes across in the structure of our lessons which are always well prepared.
After 3 lessons I already feel like I am progressing well and this is thanks to Nafiseh`s encouragement and motivation as well as her warm personality which makes having a laugh easy (especially when the tables are turned and I try and introduce her to some `scouse` slang).
Becoming proficient in Persian now seems a realistic prospect and that is thanks to Nafiseh.
Already looking forward to our next lesson.
I would recommend Nafiseh to anyone who wants to learn Persian. She is a great teacher, friendly and reliable. Her warm personality means lessons are very enjoyable. Nafiseh`s lessons are always well thought out and she chooses topics which allow your vocabulary to develop at a steady pace. I`ve been really impressed at how the classes are tailored to things which are relevant and appropriate to me.
I have lessons with Nafiseh on Skype and I have found it to be a great way to learn. I know people put emphasis on face to face tuition, but with webcams and technology as it is, Skype is practically the same as sitting at the same table. I have found online tutoring to be very flexible. Online tutoring has all the advantages of face to face tuition, but is more practical.
I`m so pleased with the progress I have made with Nafiseh and hope to keep working with her for a long time. I`m enjoying her company and getting better at Persian, whilst really enjoying the process.
Nafiseh is a delight. Highly recommended.
