Geometry

Geometry is the oldest branch of Mathematics, which starts with a straightforward discussion of lines, points and planes ? and rapidly becomes more complicated (or ?fun,? as I would say) with areas, angles and theorems. If you don?t see the fun in geometry yet - because you are frustrated ? I?m confident that I can help. Students learn geometry at almost every grade level. For most students success in math course comes from regular studying and practicing habits. However, after several years teaching Geometry, I have realized that it is the one math class can be tough for many students. Since 2007, I've been able to help hundreds of students learn math and gain a confidence that they never thought possible. My goal is to help my students grasp new concepts, and when necessary, to fill skill gaps that are preventing them from fully understanding new material. Students and parents always tell me that they enjoy my method of teaching and they notice an almost immediate increase in confidence.

Farsi

Fluency in multiple languages is becoming increasingly popular throughout the world. Advancing your career and making your international vacation a breeze are the benefits of being a bilingual speaker. One language that is becoming more popular is Persian (It is called Farsi in Iran and Dari in Afghanistan). There are many reasons for learning this lovely language. At least, learning this language opens doors into an endless treasure trove of history, culture, and civilization. I am a Persian author and I have published more than 20 Farsi learning books. A complete list is available upon request. It's always a great thing to know more than one language, and I can be the tutor to help you with that. Learning Persian language can be a frustrating process. Many learners do not know how to learn Persian properly and quickly. As a result, they waste hours, days, months, or years struggling to improve their language skills. Usually, their progress is slow and painful. Unfortunately, learning Persian language has not been as successful as it should be. In fact, people are dropping like flies from Persian language classes and programs because of the many frustrations and failures they experience during their Persian study. Most of Persian learners who had studied even for several years don?t have a satisfactory proficiency and many of them will never become fluent. I think that the main reason is the teaching method. Therefore, I focus on innovative and effective instructional strategies to keep my students motivated and actively involved in my Persian classes. Whatever is your need or interest, I feel confident in my skills as a Persian teacher, and I can tell you that you are going to enjoy and appreciate my ideas and methods! Here is a summary of my teaching method: In the first step, I help students learn Persian alphabet. At the same time, I present sentences and vocabulary through examples in Persian, and ensures student comprehension through gestures and writing target structures on the board in Persian and in English language. The next step is reinforcing the structures by asking questions about the sentences and vocabulary. I?ll solicit student responses by asking why, who, when, where and how questions, thus continually recycling the vocabulary and the grammar. Finally, the same vocabulary and grammar structures are used in a reading to verify students? comprehension. Sometimes, I may refer to grammar briefly with rapid explanation, but, the stress is always on meaning and comprehension.
