About Me

Hi!
I'm a native Russian speaker, but most importantly, I'm a linguist. I have a diploma from St.-Petersburg State University where I was specifically taught to teach languages. This means that I can explain complicated stuff so that it doesn't look so complicated anymore. Sounds about right, doesn't it?

I'm also a very relaxed, open-minded and easy-going person, which means I like to have a no-stress classroom. I work at my students' pace, I don't rush them and keep the positive vibe throughout the course. Russian is not the easiest language, but who said overcoming challenges can't be fun?

But I'm also a professional, so my lessons are structured and each of them achieves a specific purpose (usually, several, in fact). This means that you will see your progress. You'll remember more words, you'll start building more complex sentences, you'll be able to understand native speakers better. In short, you will learn Russian!

The auxiliary language of my lessons is English and I also speak French and German, but our main focus is Russian (right?), so don't worry if you don't have a high level in those languages. We'll manage!

Looking forward to meeting you!

As the student you can choose which areas you would most like to focus on and I can structure the lessons with this in mind. This can include areas such as grammar, conversation, vocabulary, and much more. We can discuss together how best I can help you to improve your language skills based on your needs, for example through help with homework or setting additional homework. If the hours shown do not suit you let me know as my lecture hours vary slightly each week and I may be able to fit you in. If you have any questions at all don't hesitate to message me.

Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher Living in Istanbul-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 16 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. 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 senior 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 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!
