Hello! My name is Arax and I am the founder of Book N’ Learn, and also, one of the teachers. I received my Bachelors degree in Social Work from Yerevan State University. I have been working with children and teens for over 15 years. I have taught Armenian to non-Armenians and Armenians in the diaspora for many years. One of my favorite aspects of teaching is meeting new people and bringing the opportunity to learn language. As a former soccer coach, working with children and adults based on their strengths is my main focus. I look forward to seeing you in the classroom, and who knows, maybe we will meet in Armenia one day too!
Hi! I am Jemma. I have over ten years of teaching experience. I got my Master’s of Arts in English Language and Literature at Yerevan State University, where I am getting my PhD in Linguistics (English) at the moment. I have been working as an English Lecturer at YSU IB for over 6 years. Languages are my passion. I really enjoy learning them but more of that I enjoy teaching. I speak Armenian, English, French, Russian and I am studying Hebrew at the moment. I have gained enough experience in teaching and have published a couple of articles on teaching methods, techniques, ways of making learning process fun and the role of a teacher in FLT classroom.
Nothing can bring more joy to my heart than teaching my mother tongue, Armenian, which is one of the most beautiful and ancient languages of the world.
I like playing different musical instruments. I play the Armenian national pipe ‘Shvi’ and the guitar. I am married. My husband and I are missionaries in Gavar, a little beautiful town near Lake Sevan. I have two daughters.

Hello! My name is Mariam Hovhannisyan. I was born and raised in Armenia in a Christian family. I grew up in a village called Nshavan and went to the local school. When I was 15, I left the country for the USA, to study in California as an exchange student for a year. It helped me to improve my English language skills. After returning to Armenia, I started interpreting and translating. I have been working in this direction for nearly 10 years now. As far as my career, I chose a different path, as I considered English a hobby I thoroughly enjoyed. I’ve graduated from the National University of Architecture and Construction of Armenia majoring in architecture. Architecture is my passion and my favorite subject to talk about. Another one of my favorite things to do is teach children in the Sunday school of one of the local Christian churches. I also enjoy drawing, singing, playing the guitar and the piano, and traveling. Being with Book N’ Learn in the last few years has brought up another passion of mine: teaching and connecting with my students!
My name is Anna Gevorgyan. I am an Armenian teacher at Book N’ Learn. I am originally from Kapan, Syunik province and I am currently living in Yerevan.
I have been teaching children since 2010. Languages and teaching are my passion. I realized it when I first entered Yerevan State University as a student. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in translation and a Master’s Degree in Management & Tourism. I am fond of sharing my knowledge with people.
In my free time, I enjoy reading and watching movies. My best way of relaxing is to travel and discover the word.
Hello, I am Taguhi. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Yerevan State University of Languages and Social Sciences after V. Brusov, in the faculty of translation studies. I believe that motivated children are the future of this world. I am certified in one-on-one tutoring and group instruction in World TESOL academy. I have spent years teaching children of all ages and now I have the privilege of being a part of the big family at Book N’ Learn. I have a true passion for working with our young learners. Helping each child progress in all areas of their development— social, language, and motor—is a challenge that I am blessed to accept daily. Personally, I like reading, traveling and translating poems. Thank you for sharing the opportunity of teaching your precious children with us!
Hello! My name is Rubina. I’m fluent in three languages: English, Russian, and Armenian. As a professional teacher I’m really excited about the opportunity of teaching Armenian online. I graduated from Yerevan State Linguistic University with a degree in English Language Teaching and Psychology. I received a Master of Theology degree from the University of Wales and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from American University of Armenia.
I am well versed in Armenian culture, history, arts, and religion. I have had a number of articles published in a local travel magazine. I’ve been teaching standard Armenian and Western Armenian to English speakers. I understand every student learns in different ways and so my teaching method varies depending on the learner’s individual needs, skills, goals and level of language proficiency. I use a number of teaching methods and materials. Having gone through the language learning experience myself, I have a good sense for the feelings and thinking of the students I teach. This allows me to tailor the Armenian learning experience to meet each student’s personal needs. As a teacher I am demanding but also patient, kind and friendly. I truly enjoy teaching and working with students of all ages. I hope to have you as my next student. Book a lesson now and let’s get started!

Barev! My name is Arsen. I was born in Yerevan, Armenia. Currently, I am a student at the Yerevan State University in the International Relations department. Before that, I received higher education at the Gevorkian Seminary of Holy Etchmiadzin where I deepened my knowledge in Armenian studies: Armenian language, history, art.
I am very excited about the opportunity to share my Armenian knowledge and experience with people who are interested in the Armenian language and/or culture. This is also a great opportunity to combine both enjoyment and practicality. So, I highly recommend you to book a lesson and start a wonderful Armenian journey with me!
