Thanks Jay, it was a great helpful lesson. I get a lot of useful information. Soumaya
It was a productive lesson with Jay. Within 90 mins, we worked on improving my motivation letter for a job application. He helped me with my written language. After the discussion, I can express myself in a precise way. Besides, according to my grammatical errors, he gave me several pieces of advice for self-study. Thank you very much.
Understanding how to use English Time Tenses properly has and continues to be a challenge for many business owners and professionals. What do they mean? What are their auxiliaries? How are they formulated? Which time words correspond to which time tense? Is there a difference in using these tenses in speech versus in writing? Learn how ALL of the English time tenses work in 3-compact sessions! If you're a small, medium or large business with a complete staff, I can come to you and help correct and bring awareness to how you're using the language, to enhance your business for meetings, travel and rendezvous of all sorts.

If there are topics you have in mind, we can additionally explore and incorporate this into your lessons. If you need to start speaking English, this class is for you. **NOTE: This class can also be offered and adjusted to accommodate multiple teenagers, adults or professionals as a group session, to make it more economical for you.

Hatice
LEARNING TURKISH IS EASY AND FUN WITH A PROFESSIONAL TEACHER
Hi, I am Hatice from Istanbul. I HAVE BEEN TEACHİNG ONLINE AND (IN PERSON) I am a native speaker of Turkish and was born in Istanbul. I have been teaching Turkish to foreigners and I have thought hundreds of students from all ages and professions for more than 20 years. I am a professional English teacher but I like teaching Turkish more as it is my mother tongue and it is a great pleasure for me to share its secrets and beauty. While teaching I also love giving some useful information about the culture, people, cuisine, films and literature in Turkey to help you get connected to Turkish culture. I prepare written and verbal dialogues in the areas the student is interested in. I am from Istanbul but I traveled almost all cities, mountains, rivers, lakes in Turkey. I am a person who likes less traveled roads and back streets. Traveling around the world and reading on the areas of spirituality, philosophy, psychology, and literature are my number one hobbies. I lived and worked in London, Toronto, and S. Korea. Living as an expat and learning several languages have helped me having sympathy with my students. Motivation, feeling relaxed and setting realistic targets, in the beginning, are usually the first thing to go. As for my formal education, I studied Economics, International Relations, Western Philosophy, and American language and literature at the university (MA and BA). And after my 40 years old, I learned classical Arabic and Persian and started to study Islamic spirituality at the doctorate level. I taught English at Prep. school at Istanbul Technical University and Yeditepe University and am retired. Ever since I could remember I have been a teacher. Now I only teach Turkish privately and translate classical novels from English to Turkish. I translated 12 books from English to Turkish. I teach Turkish that is tailored for each student. Each student is unique for me and I know that every student has her/his own way of learning. If you are a beginner I give a short lecture about the history of Turkish and its characteristics and help you find your way in this very logical, consistent and elegant language. You understand that Turkish is different but that does not necessarily mean difficulty. From the first lesson, you start speaking Turkish and find yourself in a dialogue. I can teach at my place and your place (all around Istanbul). I use several books using a grammar-based approach integrated with communicative methods to boost the development of all language skills. But we always focus on TALK, TALK, TALK. As a language learner for many years, I know one can learn, improve and take pleasure in a foreign language only by talking and communicating. It is essential to get direct pleasure from what you have learned. My aim is to motivate and inspire you to speak Turkish ignoring minor mistakes and without thinking grammar. I try to keep in contact with my students almost every day through whatsapp and email. And start some short dialogues.

Fun & Concise Native English Tuition for Beginners, Intermediate & Advanced (Kids/Adults)
Having achieved a Distinction in my 120hr TEFL qualification, I have acquired a skillset that will apply students to learn English in a fun, unpressured environment. Within this environment, students will be exposed to new features of my mother language, whilst their own knowledge will be elicited. My lessons are well planned and will often have a small, complementary homework that will re-affirm the knowledge exchanged in the lesson. However, a priority of mine is not to constantly make the student use pen and paper. A range of different exercises from drawing a comic strip to utilizing authentic-English material will be used to contextualize learning in and out of the class. My experiences consists of volunteering for 6months in my home city of Bristol, United Kingdom to a class of students. Furthermore, I have experience of private-tutoring here in Shanghai for the last 2months. I am flexible with time and with number of students in my class. A little about myself, I am a student learning Mandarin! I'd love to meet more Chinese people to practice my knowledge of the Chinese language & culture.

Learn English with me: This is for students of all ages
I am looking forward to teaching English online and in person within Rome city, to anyone who might be interested but students can also approach me for mathematics and science lessons in English language. Students of all age groups are welcome to join but my preference would be from grade 4-12. Young adults and everyone else, who want someone to practice with, can contact me and I will make sure to be of assistance in a way that would improve your language skills. I don’t possess a teaching certificate yet but I am working on a TEFL course (teaching English as a foreign language) after which I will update this page. My teaching philosophy is very similar to my learning philosophy, which is never to stop trying, make mistakes and no matter what people say, you keep on going.

I am a UK-qualified teacher with a decade of experience teaching and leading at some of the best international schools around the world - Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. My work teaching and leading departments in schools included curriculum planning and design, assessing & tracking hundreds of students, supporting student university applications, and implementation of additional measures for students with specific learning support needs. I believe that education is most effective as an interesting, constructive and engaging discussion between student, class and teacher; enjoyable and stimulating, rather than stressful and pressure-laden. I keep my classes light and relevant, while also maintaining high standards for students to build their expectations for themselves. I am CELTA-qualified and my experiences teaching non-native English around the world have helped me understand the challenges faced by students studying subjects in their second- or third- language. If you're having some challenges with your studies, please feel free to reach out to me and we can talk about your needs and a plan. All my classes are online. Subjects I offer: English Language/Literature Business Studies/Management History Geography Social Studies/Sciences Philosophy Theory of Knowledge Global Perspectives Sociology Psychology Politics Civics
