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! :)

Mij les is super geweest! Ze neemt echt de tijd om je alles te laten begrijpen. Geeft je huistaken en deel de slides met haar studenten. Ik vond het echt çok guzel!!!
Hele goede docente!
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.
An individual approach adapted to your personal needs. A person who loves to teach the Turkish 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.

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.

Sheryar
General and Academic English taught by a Native Speaker and Editor
I am a native English speaker from USA and I specialize in teaching, exam preparation, instruction and text correction for several students and professionals residing in Belgium. With experience in 4 different cities across Europe and Asia, I take a multidimensional approach to my classes, tutoring and assisting with both Academic and Business English, to ensure that all my students are at ease during the lessons which results in faster improvements and undeniable results. The lessons cover various topics, mainly focusing on comprehension, reading techniques, writing skills, grammar, vocabulary, and day to day conversation along with accent training and basic language skills. My former clients include students from middle school, high school and college as well as professionals from various occupations. I have worked with them to improve their spoken and written English. I also tutor clients who want to improve their English at an academic level for exams such as the SAT, IELTs, EPSO and TOEFL. These include high school students, college students as well as professionals, ranging from engineers to young interns at the EU parliament. I assist with exam based preparation to achieve the desired results and my clients have not been disappointed so far. I have further proofread, edited, written and improved a large amount of essays, college applications, theses, personal statements, and assignments for various clients at an academic level. I like to make my lessons interesting, but at the same time, I make sure that they are as productive as possible. With a thorough understanding and experience of English grammar and literature, I further take care of ghost writing, proof reading and editing of academic and professional papers. Weekly and monthly rates are possible in this case. I have no issues meeting anywhere in Brussels, or at a location or town close to the city.

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. ;-) See you soon!
