Hello everybody! My name is Ziba, I am Iranian and currently I'm living in Italy. My mother tongue is Persian(Farsi). I am interested in learning different languages so I started learning English when I was 10. Besides knowing Persian and English, I can speak Italian and Azeri.
As I graduated in English teaching, I am a TEFL certified teacher and a tourist guide, too. I started teaching English to kids and teens when I was a sophomore student. Now after seven years of teaching experience, both face-to-face and online classes, I would like to continue it online, because I am so eager to meet new people and to know more about their cultures; online teaching brought this opportunity to me to continue my job as a teacher in an international setting and also provided to teach my mother tongue too, which makes this teaching style so exciting and interesting to me.
Thanks to my teaching experience, now I can provide practical classes almost for all levels and purposes, in which you can learn grammar, speaking, pronunciation, idiomatic expressions, for tourism and…you name it!
My classes are learner-centered and I respect individual differences and personality variables. I am patient, friendly, encouraging and responsible. TPR and CLT are the methods that I use often for teaching.
If you would like to learn Persian (Farsi), to know about the culture of Iran, different festivals or if you would like to visit Iran in the near future, I can teach you the basic and necessary words and dialogues. Also there is a class that I provided for who is interested to learn about colloquial words in Farsi and Iranians body language too!
I worked as an online teacher and used to teach English to almost all ages. There were students from all over Iran and classes were held in groups.
2014 - 2016
IT - Qazvin, Iran
During this work experience, in those face to face classes, I taught English to students of elementary, pre-intermediate and intermediate levels.
2012 - 2014
Sunean - Qazvin, Iran
I started teaching in Sunean, an English school in my hometown, as my first work experience. I taught to kids and teens there for two years. Lectures were held in group of 20 students. The positive feedback which I received from there, it encouraged me to think about this job seriously.
