Mary Hakobyan is a highly experienced Eastern Armenian Language teacher with a diverse teaching background. After graduating from Yerevan State University, from the faculty of Romance and Germanic languages with a Master’s Degree in Philology, she started to teach Eastern Armenian to Diasporans and foreigners in Birthright Armenia. Additionally, she tutored ambassadors, diplomats and foreigners in Eastern Armenian with a self-developed curriculum, adopting an entirely new approach to teaching and learning Armenian. She was awarded a certificate in ''Classical Orthography of Armenian Language” by the Mashtots Union, based in Paris.
After many years of teaching, Mary designed her textbook taking into consideration all the difficulties and obstacles the students came across when learning a new language. The textbook is a result of her innovative teaching methods which she exercised with her students. At present she resides in Toronto and offers online Eastern Armenian lessons for those who want to learn the language from the comfort of their home.
