About the Educator

With over eighteen years of experience in English language education and instruction, Dr. Anar Rajabali brings her expert knowledge – and passion and reverence for the written word – to each one of her students.

With dynamic teaching and armed with a proven methodology of writing instruction, she inspires excellence in her learners.

Anar is also a writer, speaker and a scholar with a PhD in Language and Literacy Education from The University of British Columbia.


Teaching and reading materials are carefully selected and crafted for each student. I aim to challenge and inspire by systematically working above the grade in reaching a higher level of comprehension, understanding and analysis of literature.


Students often state that they have not been taught how to write and they do not know what to write. Devised, practiced and tested for years, my writing methodology has been taught to hundreds of students throughout the years.

Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy embraces the core values of holistic education nurturing the broad development of students—intellectual, emotional, social, physical, creative, intuitive, aesthetic and spiritual potentials. I see our learners as whole human beings.
