About Me

Merhaba! I have a master degree in teaching. I have 10 years experience in teaching, mainly focused on my mother tongue, Turkish. My academic background and experiences as a teacher and my native language as a Turkish is always a big advantage for the ones who want to learn Turkish.

I have been teaching Turkish to foreigners for already several years. Please see my references. I also work for a language school in Belgium, as a Turkish for foreigners teacher.

I have also, two years ago, obtained an international certificate for teaching Turkish to foreigners.

I feel that you will be the next success story I have :) Oyleyse, gorusmek uzere!.

Merhaba! Ik ben in Turkije geboren en ik heb daar gewoond tot 2016. Ik ben al 5 jaar in Belgie! Ik heb een masterdiploma in onderwijs en Turks is mijn moedertaal. Oyleyse, gorusmek uzere! :)

Education

My lesson has been great! She really takes the time to make you understand everything. Gives you homework assignments and shares the slides with her students. I really thought it was cool!!!

I can definitely recommend Cigdem as a turkish teacher. She adapts to your learning speed very well. As a native speaker she naturally masters the language and can clearly explain concepts that are not very obvious to non-turkish speakers.
Cigdem is a great teacher who takes the time to integrate learnings with real-life discussions. For example, we spend 10 minutes at the start of each lesson and throughout the course of the lesson an extra 15-20 minutes having a chat about subjects including work and life in order to be able to apply all the theoretical learnings to the actual language.

Turkish lessons for any level of students from the very beginner to advanced level students. I, as a native speaker of Turkish, have a master degree on teaching and currently living in Leuven. Upon agreement, we can organize the lessons in other cities like Brussels as well. Ik ben een leraar met een masterdiploma. Turks is mijn moedertaal. Ik wil mijn beroep in België houden door Turkse lessen te geven. Je suis un enseignant avec une maîtrise. Le turc est ma langue maternelle. Je veux garder mon métier en Belgique en donnant des cours de turc.
Nederlands voor kinderen Dutch for kids at beginning level. Mostly focused on the expat families to help their kids get into the language. As a pre-school and/or early phase lessons to teach the basics of the language, as well as practical dialogues.

English classes online and/or offline (A1 to B2 levels)
According to the level of expertise of the student (I accept students from A1 to B2 levels), I will guide the classes with the help of a workbook, focusing on the preparation for the Cambridge English Exam. Therefore, my focus extends to all areas of learning from Writing, Reading, Speaking and Listening. The methodology will depend on the preferences of each person. English is my second language and I have advanced training from a highly prestigious English School since I was 5 years old. I have a C2 proficient level certificate (CPE). I also have experience in giving private English lessons.

English for kids, beginners, adults With a nice learning method
Here we learn together from the vocabulary how to speak fluent English and add some grammar so that this learning journey is not stressful, but very joyful. Give yourself the space and time to learn this global and important language and learn to communicate fluently with English speakers despite its dialect, as we will try to deal with more than one dialect together.

English Language Lessons for Children and/or Adults
I am an American living in Leuven, Belgium. I used to be a cheerleader back home in Louisiana, and have always worked with children. I have a master's and bachelor's degree in history and am currently completing a second master's in social and cultural anthropology. Teaching is one of my passions and I would love to be able to share that while living here.

ENGLISH LESSONS ENGLISH TEACHER FROM THE UK, qualified teacher from England
I am a qualified English teacher from England. I obtained my bachelor's degree in linguistics at Lancaster University (UK) and will soon have my master's degree. I have been teaching English for over 3 years to students who wish to improve their English language skills or become bilingual. All my students are satisfied with my course and those who had entrance exams have passed successfully. There is nothing like having English lessons with a qualified English speaker ;-) I have done all my studies in English and in the United Kingdom, I consider English as being my first language among all the other ones I have learned. Being a "native" speaker for me is meaningless, the qualifications are the most important as well as the experience (you could have a "native" speaker who makes a lot of mistakes because this person is not qualified in teaching). The price of the lessons is moderate compared to the effectiveness of my courses. I use a variety of methods and can easily adapt to the needs of the student. I offer courses at all levels (beginner, advanced to university level) as well as English courses for IELTS/TOEFL, A-LEVELS or correction of written works. I have worked with children as well as teenagers and adults. My 3 years of experience as a teacher in England have helped me to develop the qualities necessary to motivate my students and teach them effectively. I can deliver the lessons online anywhere in the world. Do not hesitate to contact me to book a lesson, places are quickly taken. If your desired time slot wouldn't be available, I would do my best to adapt myself to your schedule and I would refer you to some of my colleagues. ;-) Lessons usually last 50 minutes. See you soon!

LANGUAGE LABEL: Giving course to learn Dutch and English
In a personal learning route you walk on your own level and at your own pace through vocabulary, grammar and especially talking. No school stuff, but a lot of variety to stimulate your GOESTING for the language and give a boost to your self-confidence. YES, YOU CAN! I am a certified language teacher (NL-ENG) with many years of experience in schools, adult education and companies, and consider me a 'language desire architect'. Together we open doors in a creative way, we bring the world a piece of 'on your doorstep'. And, who knows, in the near future you will have a (linguistic) lump richer!

French and English certified courses from A1 to C2 level
French and English are such beautiful and useful langages. With me you'll be able to practice your writing, reading, listening but also your speaking skills without any judgement. We'll have funny discussions and I'll show you that French is not that difficult. Having langages skills looks great on a CV but also enables you to show off to your friends and family. For children, I had many experiences as an English tutor in France, I would be very pedagogical to help kids learn while having fun.

Abbie
English For Children (Qualified British Tutor in Brussels)
I run private English classes for individuals and siblings. The sessions are designed for beginners and elementary students and are packed with active games, focused activities and stories - all in English. I use reward charts and positive reinforcement to keep students motivated, and use lots of images, hand gestures and expression to help them learn as quickly as possible. The classes are designed for 4 - 7 year olds with a basic understanding / no understanding of English. They can be adapted for older students. I am a British native speaker with an English teaching qualification (CELTA - Pass A: highest grade) from International House London and a BA (Hons) Performing Arts degree (First class: highest grade) from Bath Spa University in England. I have been helping students learn English since 2012, including spending a year teaching English through theatre and creative activities in Beijing.

Anusha
Economics (Secondary to University levels) and English (Primary level) Tutoring
Economics classes for University level students will be based on student's needs (some suggestions: Econometrics, Microeconomics, Quantitative Economics). For school students, it can involve advanced learning or basic Economic knowledge (aligned to student's needs). English classes will involve writing and speaking practice (based on the student's existing knowledge). I tend to explain things pretty well. I always try to assign homework for further practice. Times can be discussed with me and I do accommodate students based on mutual availability.
