I have taken 57 classes with Leila in the last year and a half, and it has been an incredible experience and total joy. When I first met her, I had studied Persian on and off for many years, but my speaking was pretty rusty. I was also very interested in studying Persian poetry. Leila offered to combine two of her classes in one for me, so that the first part would be conversation and the second part would focus on reading works of poetry. Since then it has also expanded to working on translation of prose and poetry from English to Persian and Persian to English. Suffice it to say, I have grown a LOT in my Persian speaking, writing, and reading abilities since I first started the lessons. Leila is kind, patient, generous, flexible, and very professional. She also has a vast and thorough understanding of Persian literature and language pedagogy. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone wanting to learn Persian or study Persian literature in any capacity. Thank you Leila!!!
