Teacher Biography

Arpine Sahakyan

Arpine Sahakyan


My name is Arpine Sahakyan, and I am thrilled to say this is my 3rd year teaching English as a Second Language at the LA ORT College. 

I grew up in Yerevan, Armenia and graduated from the State Linguistic University after V. Brusov with a Bachelor’s Degree specializing in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I began my teaching career in Shirakatsi Lyceum. I taught English in that school for seven years before moving to LA.

I have been working at the LA ORT College for 3 years, and I am very happy to have students from different nationalities. It makes the learning process more interesting and students learn a lot of new things about other cultures and traditions.

I am also an ESL Instructor in Rio Hondo Community College and I started working there since August 2018. 

Currently, I live in Pasadena with my husband and son. I enjoy cooking, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
