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!

*New* English with qualified British Teacher (native speaker): Friendly, Informative, Effective English Language Lessons (online via Skype)
Hello, I am a qualified native British English teacher, with a passion for helping people improve their English in a friendly, relaxed, collaborative way. I can help you increase your competence, and confidence, in both general and business English. Everybody has different language learning needs, therefore, your lesson will be tailored to meet your individual requirements. You may feel that you need to improve your listening comprehension, or extend your vocabulary; fine tune your pronunciation, or enhance your written and spoken grammar; boost your confidence in public speaking or feel comfortable with social conversation. Together we will identify your areas of priority and get you to where you want to be. I have a clear speaking voice, with no regional accent – which learners find easy to understand, and a friendly collaborative approach, rather than a dictatorial teaching style. I am learning French (my level is B2), so I know from personal experience that learning a new language can be challenging. Sometimes we feel we have reached a plateau and feel disheartened. In these situations, we need somebody who will be patient and take time to help us. I also know how frustrating it can be when we find it difficult to find the nuances that help us to express ourselves fluently. I understand. I will help you progress. It is natural to be nervous when learning to speak another language, but I promise not to scare you! I will help you overcome those nerves and develop confidence & competence in the areas that you need it most. I have the necessary pedagogy to help you with grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, listening skills and the varied styles of writing. (TEFL qualified with Distinction, 150-hour course). I also have 29 years’ experience in public speaking and giving presentations, so if you need to practice those skills in English I can help you with that. If you choose to learn with me, our first session will focus on identifying the following: • your language learning goals • your reasons for learning English • your language learning needs • your preferred method of learning • the amount of time you have allocated to studying English I look forward to working with you!

Assert yourself by the work of the voice and the oral expression / Paris
The current professional world pushes us to always look valiant and efficient. But the voice can suddenly fail us and we hear screaming, inside us: "I'll never get there, I'm not up to it!" These silent cries block our expression and force us to remain spectators. of those who arrive there: to speak, to master their voice, their body, their speech ... How would it be otherwise, when we never learned these techniques and did not train? Public speaking has, for many of us, more naturalness. Today, and we can rejoice, oral expression is up to date in our Western societies. The work that this effort requires is known and it is important to be able to share its vulnerabilities with someone you trust, who will make you rediscover the pleasure behind fear! My specificity as a teacher? I transmit an accompaniment adapted to each person, resulting from my theatrical practice, vocal and my constant research on the language. My teaching experiences led me to be attentive to the problems related to the speech of women, particularly spoiled in terms of cultural obstacles! Others may also be happy to experiment with me a different approach, departing from the usual male injunctions. My goal is to find the singularity of each voice, which is that of each being. The solutions that you will put in place to make you feel more comfortable will emerge from you, your work guided with kindness and involvement. Want to try this joyous adventure? Welcome !
