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.

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.

I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.
