About Me

Language Tuition offered: ENGLISH as a Second/Foreign Language (ESL), GERMAN, ITALIAN.

I have always loved languages with a passion since I was a child. I believe that learning another language has many benefits, which I would like to share with students. Languages enrich us by opening up insights into a different culture and mentality.
Learning a foreign language also exercises our brain cells, keeping us mentally fit.
Communicating in the native language of a country visited, whether for business, study or pleasure, brings huge rewards.
For beginners or improvers wishing to learn or build on their knowledge of ENGLISH (as a foreign language), GERMAN or ITALIAN I can help with both the spoken and written language. The tuition can cover conversation practice, building fluency and confidence in the spoken language, and/or grammar and writing practice.
The tuition is always tailored to suit each individual student. My aim is always to take your knowledge to the next level, whilst keeping the tuition interesting, enjoyable and fun.

Very good teacher, very attractive course, best teacher ever
Carol really puts a great effort into every english lesson. Not only during the lesson, also befor the lesson. She searches for good exercises. Overall a very great and fun english teacher!
I wanted to brush up my German and Carol proved to be the perfect tutor. She designed a course to match my needs and was happy to adapt it as I progressed. She provided preparation work to support really effective face-to-face courses which included conversation practice around topics I chose. Carol is a highly professional language teacher who loves her job and shows infinite patience and flexibility. Her half-German background meant she understood my pitfalls and gently corrected and explained them. Her lessons were great fun and -Eureka! I finally feel more confident in German. I can recommend Carol 100%. Chris

Private lessons of French as a foreign language for all levels
I offer French as a foreign language courses for all levels. French is my mother tongue, and, as a translator, my daily working language. My methodology is based mainly, but not only, on the learning of dialogues in French, which will allow the student, gradually, to acquire vocabulary, to understand the grammar and to fix the linguistic structures in his head. I also offer oral conversation classes for anyone who wants to express themselves in French more fluently and improve their oral comprehension of the language. I also adapt to the specific requests of pupils or students. The course is given by videoconference (Skype, Teams, Zoom, WhatsApp, etc.)

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 years. I started to teach when I was studying Turkish Language and Literature. I worked in a language school and at the universities, I suppose that I gained success. 😊 My achievements are directly proportional to my students’ success. My students are mostly teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. I feel rewarded when I witness their progress in applying their Turkish language skills to their daily lives. Over the years, I have met hundreds of people from all over the world, taught Turkish, and told them about Istanbul and Turkey. Those people told me about their countries and learned to express themselves in Turkish. For example, I ask them: “Do you like Istanbul?” in Turkish it is “İstanbul’u surveyor museum?” or “ Traffic is very bad in Istanbul!”, “İstanbul’ da çok Trafik var!” The basic but correct conversation is really important for self-confidence in any language. If a learner can master basic sentence forms, the rest will come much easier. On the other hand, making mistakes is also very important. Especially, a learner can not speak without making a mistake the first and second time. My students are always varied and have diverse learning skills. My professionalism also allows me to tailor language education according to individual interests, needs, and capacities. In the classroom, I hold firm three main principles: first, providing a comfortable environment, second, creating an encouraging atmosphere, and third, establishing a collaborative instruction model. I consider that I developed an aptitude for making learning Turkish to become much easier, enjoyable, and practical for my students. I use a book prepared by a university in Turkey. I share the pdf version of the book for my lessons. I also adapt the materials according to the learner’s needs and support the book with my authentic materials. Even though I use a communicative approach, all my lessons are guided by a solid knowledge of grammar. On the online lessons, I send an e-mail after every lesson. That word file includes a vocabulary list, sentences (corrected and uncorrected versions, you can compare both of them easily), grammar point,s and homework for revision. In this way, you can find everything in a file well organized. When we have a face to face lesson, I give a hard copy of this list after every lesson. The lessons could be at my home office or in my student's house or office. I sometimes meet with my students in a coffee shop, I try to prefer silent places. :) How learning a new language opens a new window into a person, teaching Turkish is also the same for me! I was always interested in languages - I could speak a bit of Italian and learned Persian grammar except English. I always think about Istanbul -I was born and grew up here- it is a good place for self-improvement. First and foremost, Istanbul hosts international people coming from around the world. It is considering to me, I am lucky because I have one of the pleasant professions. When teaching Turkish, promoting cross-cultural awareness forms an important part of my lessons. Teaching the language involves both the students and myself in a dynamic conversation about our cultural backgrounds. Teaching Turkish is in fact not only teaching a language but also teaching a culture. I am interested in cinema, music and like visiting museums. I always share the activities with my students. I also teach Turkish to young learners. I started to study Child Development at Istanbul University as a second university in 2018. We say in Turkish, “Studies have no age!" If you want to speak Turkish well, please contact me. It is fun, and we will smile during the lesson!
