This is a Literature based English course most suited for high school students with an intermediate to advanced level of preexisting English knowledge; students pursuing university options abroad or English-teaching universities nationally will find this course especially useful. This program is based on the teaching practices and curriculum of American secondary school language education. Its aims are to strengthen reading comprehension ability, develop critical thinking skills, improve expression in a foreign language and encourage deeper analysis, with a secondary focus on vocabulary expansion and grammar correction. Students will be asked to complete reading and writing assignments at home followed by an in-depth discussion of the material and further exercises during the lesson. If a student regularly fails to complete given homework or is unwilling to learn, I will not be continuing with lessons. This class is also available for University students looking to perfect their grasp of the English language, and can easily be adjusted for 7th and 8th grade levels, given students can express themselves somewhat comfortably in English. About me: Hello, I am an American-born bi-native speaker of both English and Turkish. I have received my primary and secondary education in the USA. Currently, I reside in Istanbul while I attend Boğaziçi University. I have 3 years of intermittent experience tutoring children of all ages in English; I also have experienced first-hand the education system of an English-speaking country and the application process, i.e. what Universities expect from applicants. I noticed that the current education system favors rote memorization and quantitative skills but tends to overlook skills such as the analysis of a text and the presentation of that analysis that admissions offices of universities abroad and professors teaching at esteemed schools nationally look for. When I realized this deficiency I also realized I had the skills and experience to close this gap for motivated, aspiring academics who want to broaden their horizons both nationally and internationally. I am also available for speaking practice, homework help, and SAT/ACT preparation. (The SAT and ACT are university entry exams in the United States. My scores: SAT=2240/2400, %1st percentile; ACT=32/36)

Trusted teacher: French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: the goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

Chalice
I have been taking classes with Chalice for one month and I am now more confident speaking English. Each week she focuses on my needs of vocabulary, pronunciation or grammar, so I can really work on the problems which are stopping me. The atmosphere she creates is very intimate and I can express myself better. I think she is a great teacher with lots of knowledge about the English language and really committed!!

Adrienne
Adrienne was super punctual and had prepared the class really well, and even sent me content a few days before the class. Her lesson was really interesting and I felt like I learned more than just language skills by the end of it, because she provided interesting historical and social context to everything she shared with me.

Sabrina
Sabrina is very easy to talk to and continually encourages you to respond. She has the ability to correct any mistakes without interrupting the flow of conversation. I found we talked about a wide range of topics and gradually felt that my listening skills in particular had improved.
