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

I have obtained a master degree in teaching (also an advanced certificate on teaching Turkish to foreigners), with a global formation including the student psychology, teaching methodologies, communication with different age groups etc. This is actually a second (advanced) master for teaching.

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.
...
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.

I am especially experienced in young learners education, we can be a good team for your children. Hope to hear from you!

Peter
WISK / BIO / CHEMISTRY / PHYSICS | University student who teaches science subjects to secondary students of all levels.
It is important that I know how the lesson is taught by the teacher. That is why I always prepare my lessons on the basis of the teacher's workbook. Then I teach from the very beginning. I am convinced that you can never build on things without a good foundation. Does this base not work? Then we'll just start over until we get the hang of it! For a further build-up in difficulty I fully adapt to the pace of the student, this is important to be able to remember everything in the long term, such as for a test within a few days. After class I am also available 24/7 to forward small questions or extra exercises that we can discuss in a next lesson. So no worries, you can always contact me. :)

Learn how to speak Spanish in 10 lessons, learn how to speak English in 10 lessons, learn how to speak Dutch in 10 lessons
In my classes of English, Spanish or Dutch you will be talking immediately thanks to the specific pedagogy I use. I put you into your learning objective context and explain grammar 'by experience', using role plays, synonyms and explanations in the target language. Moreover, you will be using vocabulary straight away and progress significantly in this way. Specific technical language such as medical, biological, business or other language are possible too and will be agreed upon while we do the intake needs analysis by phone.

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.

Native English Conversation Classes. Online or in Brussels central.
Do you have a basic level of English and wish to practice those skills in an informal and enjoyable way? Let's talk! I am a native English teacher with a love of communication and meeting new people. I would be happy to spend 30 minutes or an hour with you individually or as part of a group discussing different topics, practising vocabulary or situational phrases and enjoying a coffee. My techniques to improve conversational English consist of open and honest communication. To correct any misunderstandings of vocabulary or syntax at the appropriate time, to discuss topics that interest us both or would be useful to your personal needs ie. business meeting, networking etc. and to genuinely enjoy our sessions. This would be a lovely way to spend 30 minutes of your lunch hour, or to discuss events of the day as you relax after a busy workday. Learning and practising does not have to be a chore. I look forward to chatting with you soon!
