I am pursuing my full-time PhD programme at the Faculty of Education and Social Work in the University of Auckland. I am conducting my research in the field of Child Poverty and involving children (as active citizens) in the processes of policy-making around child poverty particularly in New Zealand.
I gained my M. A. in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) in University of Malaya (UM), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 2010 to 2013. My overall GPA was 3.88 out of 4.
My four Bilingual children’s storybooks in lyric format in a firm and strict meter were published in English and Persian languages. Also, my other stories are in progress to be published soon in New Zealand.
I also Worked voluntarily in a cultural NGO organization, received a certificate after passing the necessary courses and practical jobs and working in educational workshops held by ‘The International Council of The Children’s Book’, located in Tehran, Iran. We disseminated intellectual culture in poverty-stricken regions by distributing academic materials and award-winning books among the poor children.
Moreover, I taught as Teaching Assistant and Organizer of a Series of Training Weekly Workshops for Undergraduate and Master’s students in Kermanshah Public and Azad Universities from 2014-to 2016. I elucidated all concepts pertinent to Research in Education (PXGZ6101) and Research in TESL (PBGS6104). Likewise, I involved in Private Tutoring on Research Methodology during educational workshops in University of Malaya too.
I was ECE Researcher, Curricula Designer, and English Language Tutor of teachers, in Montessori Kindergarten, Kuala Lumpur, (2010-2012). Moreover, I successfully passed my Teacher Training Courses (TTC) as the on-the-job training (OJT) within full 17 weeks (2010 -2011). I was also Syllabus Designer and English Language Teacher in Tehran (2003- 2007) by Designing remedial courses for low achievers in secondary school.
