Hello, my name is Mahnaz - and I'm 30 years old and currently living in Iran, Islamic Republic of. I am a native Persian speaker and teach English, Persian. I have taught online with Verbalplanet.com since July 2016. I can speak the following languages fluently: Persian, English.

Detailed Profile in English

About me

I'm Mahnaz and I'm from Iran. I'm motivated, sociable, and positive. I can speak Persian/Farsi (Native), English (Fluent), and French (Basic). Translation and Teaching are my two favourite fields, and I love work involving them. I'm really excited about getting to work with my new students!

Qualifications & Experience

I received my BA in English Language & Literature in 2010, and started my career as an ESL teacher in Tehran with Safir Language Academy after passing an intensive TTC (Teacher Training Course). I taught English to Adult and teenage students in elementary, pre-intermediate, and intermediate level whose first language was Farsi for 3 years before I traveled to Australia.

I've been also a freelance translator for over 10 years. I have a lot of experience translating texts from Farsi to English, and vice versa. As such, I'm well-equipped to teach English speaking students Farsi.

Teaching Approach

My lesson plan centers around three stages: Engagement, Study, and Activation. Most of my classes tend to be learner based and interactive. Giving students lots of opportunity to talk and personalize the topic is my top priority when planning a lesson.

I also:

Design a variety of different tasks based on the main cognitive learning styles (being visual, auditory, and kinetic)

Prepare Audio Visual Aid (AVA) material.

Correct students' errors and mistakes; providing them with detailed feedback.

Assign homework (including writing compositions, vocabulary practice, readings and grammar exercises); checking and correcting assignments
