About Me

I have been teaching for the past five years, non-language subjects for the first three and English for the last two since I have been living in Turkey. I work during the day teaching at a university and in the evenings at least a couple of times a week I enjoy having one on one lessons with students. I have a business background as well as teaching so a lot of my students like to focus on business English, but I am capable of improving whatever skills my clients want to focus on.

Education

Bachelor of Business Studies - Massey University (New Zealand)
Before I got into teaching I first studied, and later worked in the startup field helping small businesses grow into larger ones.

Experience / Qualifications

CELTA - This is an ESL teaching qualification that is usually considered the best of its kind and is accepted my most institutions. I received the top grade out of all my class during this course.

Hello students! English has become the most widely used language worldwide and so it is imperitave that we know how to communicate in it, read in it and write in it in this day and age. In this class, I welcome students of all ages and levels of understanding in English to come and join me on a step by step journey to becoming skilled in the English language. In each class we will tackle 3 things, varying according to your own level. These will be reading exercises, grammar exercises and speaking exercises so that by the end of the class, you are fully equipped with the skill to handle any English language involving activity. I will also be happy to provide my services to students who need help in test preparation or any English essay/research paper work. By the end of the classes, I will be leaving you with some homework in order for you to self evaluate your progress during the class and better improve your skills.

Basic English Classes for Communication and Reading
My experience in English teaching lies after 16 years of education in an all English education system. I have taught kids for the past 2 years in English and have written several research papers. The aim of my class is effective communication with appropriate learning. I will ask you to learn a few words and we will use it in our conversations. The class will follow a few syntax based classes then we will move to learning grammar and proper sentence structuring.

English language is a universal language, that as an individual I believe is extremely important for people of all ages all over the world.

If you think it is too hard to learn, don’t worry, we have got you covered because we can help you read and write fluent English in simple ways, which will help you in your studies, in your business affairs locally and internationally, and you can easily travel the world without having any sort of communication barrier.

Online Class for English, Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Physics (in English)
Hi everyone! I’m presently a student of Genetics and Bioengineering in Istanbul Bilgi University. As majority universities are leaning towards English as the primary source of instruction in Istanbul, I feel it is important to have full command over the language. I have studied English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology under the Cambridge Assessment International Education and have secured A’s and B’s in both my Ordinary and Advanced Level Exams. I had a 3.4 GPA in university. My Biology, Chemistry, Physics and BILET test preparation classes will include detailed discussions of topics as well as solving examples and queries/homework questions.

***** Availability update made on 09/01/2020. Valid until further notice ***** I offer you my services in order to make you truly effective orally / in writing in English. If you have to use English in the course of your professional activity and you don't get comfortable with it ... If you are tired of being spotted immediately as French ... If you don't know still not when to use the present perfect / preterite .... I'm here to help you and make you progress. * Linguist by training and author of school textbook in this capacity. Note that I am not this young student who had a good mark in the Baccalaureate or this other who is supposedly bilingual. I have been teaching as a teacher in the National Education since 1995 and I can tell you that teaching cannot be improvised. It is not an activity that we do "like that". I offer you my expertise and my experience. By the way, to have 10/20 in the Baccalaureate, it is enough to have the A2 level (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd year) so I let you imagine the desperation of future engineers who must obtain at least 750 in the TOEIC! (the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course is prepared according to your needs. Feedback is always given. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, connections ... Oral grammar. * Adaptation to all levels: from college to post-baccalaureate through high school. => Post-bac: preparation for TOEIC, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First-Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Orals and writings from grandes écoles such as ENA => Orals and writings from business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details.
