The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate "apparently ordinary" people to unusual effort. The tough problem is not in identifying winners: it is in making winners out of ordinary people. ~K. Patricia Cross
We all have had at least one special teacher in our lives. That one individual who gave you the feeling that you were special. If you have not, yet, he or she is out there; go and find them.
The Iranian teachers’ community started with those who taught one subject to Iranian kids abroad, that was not part of the regular curriculum for kids and teenagers in the USA: Persian Language.
Persian classes everywhere grew in numbers as more and more Iranian immigrant parents wanted the kids to have the ability of speaking their native tongue, and thereby, connect with the rich heritage of their ancestors. Persian class is still the most popular subject taught to Iranian kids abroad.
Times have changed, and more and more excellent Iranian teachers have come along, teaching a variety of subjects. On this site, you may find teachers teaching English as second language, tonbak, soccer, Persian calligraphy or singing, and other skills.
If you are a teacher, please add your name to the list and the subject matter will most likely appear on the dropdown menu for you to select. In case, your subject matter is not listed, you may check the ‘other’ box, and type it in the box. Remember, if you are teaching it, there is always somebody out there who wants to learn it.
It is an absolute privilege to have all these wonderful teachers listed with us in one place. To visitors: Never stop learning. We wish you luck in finding the right teacher, and happy learning. To teachers, we quote Henry Adams: A teacher affect eternity: He can never tell where his influence stops.
