Turkish and English Lessons from a Neurolinguist (Ph.D.) and a Speech and Language Therapist (MSc.)

"Language learning" is a complex notion but also achievable through correct methods and strategies. I have been studying/researching how languages work in the brain and how people gain langauge skills. In my classes, I put these knowledge in practice and try to create the best learning environment for my clients.

Together we can discuss your needs and expectations, and construct our lessons accordingly. Whether you are new to this language or can already have basic conversations or maybe you want to learn more specific vocabulary and topics, all are possible!

If have questions in mind or you are uncertain of which classes will fit to your level of need, you can contact me for a quick chat and we can arrange an Introductory Meeting. In these meetings you and I will be able to find the perfect level for you, so we can draw out what you want to learn

Extra information

I have a Ph.D. in Neurolinguistics so I studied how languages work in the brain. I hold a BA in English Language Teaching and have teaching and mentoring experience with people from as young as 3 years old till 50 years of age. I have also worked and enjoyed every second of working with people with special needs, such as aphasia and autism.

Even though Turkish is my native language, my current primary tongue is English. I have lived abroad for over 5 years (and been actively traveling for 12 years), including a year in the USA and Australia.

Leuke en interactieve les Engels-IELTS/TOEFL exam preparation
Als je Engels wil leren of jouw Engels wil verbeteren, ben ik misschien de juiste leraar voor jou. Ik bied gepersonaliseerde lessen aan die leuk, interactief en gebaseerd zijn op wat mijn studenten nodig hebben en willen leren. Ik doe dit door middel van een verscheidenheid aan activiteiten om u stap voor stap te helpen uw vaardigheden op te bouwen; inclusief onder andere rollenspellen (gebaseerd op real-life situaties), Q & A's en games. Het doel is om je aan het praten te houden! De lessen worden vooral in het Engels gegeven, hierdoor kun je tijdens de les zoveel mogelijk Engels leren en oefenen. Maak je geen zorgen over het maken van fouten; door fouten te maken en ervan te leren word je zelfs beter. Herhaling is een belangrijk onderdeel van mijn lessen. Ik ga vaak terug om te controleren of je je nog herinnert wat in voorgaande lessen is geïntroduceerd. Ik bied ook lessen aan die gericht zijn op de voorbereiding op internationale examens Engels zoals de IELTS en TOEFL. Voordat we met onze lessen beginnen, wil ik weten wat jouw redenen zijn om Engels te leren. Als je al enige kennis van het Engels hebt zal ik bepalen wat jouw exacte niveau is. Zodra ik weet wat jouw behoeften, interesses en niveau zijn, kan ik de juiste materialen selecteren en de juiste cursus voor jou ontwerpen. We kunnen werken met een leerboek (plus extra materiaal) of met mijn eigen lesmateriaal. Ik maak gebruik van video's, dia's, werkbladen en ander lesmateriaal. Als je het leuk vindt, kan ik je ook oefeningen en bronnen per e-mail sturen, zodat je zelfstandig kan blijven leren. Bij twijfel kun je mij altijd bereiken via e-mail of WhatsApp. Onze lessen kunnen online zijn (met Zoom, Skype of een platform naar keuze), of ik kan bij jou thuis komen (in Haarlem, Velserbroek, Santpoort-Zuid, Santport-Noord, Driehuis, Beverwijk, IJmuiden of Overveen). De lessen kunnen een-op-een zijn of in een kleine groep.

I teach Arabic: language and communication with an effective pedagogy, written and oral so that everyone can speak fluently avoiding grammatical gaps. I explain all my courses to foreigners by webcam, because I am in Morocco, in Rabat. And if you will come to my country one day, I will be very happy to see you. I present my classes in French, Arabic or Spanish, according to your choice.

Başak
Turkish Lessons (In-Person OR Online) for Adults and Kids from an Experienced and Patient Teacher For All Levels-Learn&Practice&Speak!
I have been teaching Turkish for 17 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. My students are mostly the teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travellers. 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! *Please note that I only do online lessons because of Covid-19. Thank you for understanding.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a young, qualified and experienced mathematics tutor. While each child encounters unique learning difficulties, the ever increasing number of students per class is forcing teachers to standardize their teaching method. Faced with this observation, I decided to specialize in individual tutoring in order to guide each student on the path to success. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive whiteboard. This educational tool considerably improves the student / teacher interaction. The student only needs a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of his knowledge in mathematics. The goal is to identify its weak points and understand their origin. I then adapt the content of my courses to their specific needs. I make it a tailor-made remediation program aimed at gradually filling each of its shortcomings. At the same time, I support the student in learning new subjects by making sure that he masters the mathematical notions necessary for the validation of his school year. I also do substantive work teaching the most effective learning methods. Finally, thanks to modern means of communication, the pupil benefits from emergency assistance accessible remotely 7 days a week (help with homework, explanation the day before an assessment, etc.).

Hatice
LEARNING TURKISH IS EASY AND FUN WITH A PROFESSIONAL TEACHER
Hi, I am Hatice from Istanbul. I HAVE BEEN TEACHİNG ONLINE AND (IN PERSON) I am a native speaker of Turkish and was born in Istanbul. I have been teaching Turkish to foreigners and I have thought hundreds of students from all ages and professions for more than 20 years. I am a professional English teacher but I like teaching Turkish more as it is my mother tongue and it is a great pleasure for me to share its secrets and beauty. While teaching I also love giving some useful information about the culture, people, cuisine, films and literature in Turkey to help you get connected to Turkish culture. I prepare written and verbal dialogues in the areas the student is interested in. I am from Istanbul but I traveled almost all cities, mountains, rivers, lakes in Turkey. I am a person who likes less traveled roads and back streets. Traveling around the world and reading on the areas of spirituality, philosophy, psychology, and literature are my number one hobbies. I lived and worked in London, Toronto, and S. Korea. Living as an expat and learning several languages have helped me having sympathy with my students. Motivation, feeling relaxed and setting realistic targets, in the beginning, are usually the first thing to go. As for my formal education, I studied Economics, International Relations, Western Philosophy, and American language and literature at the university (MA and BA). And after my 40 years old, I learned classical Arabic and Persian and started to study Islamic spirituality at the doctorate level. I taught English at Prep. school at Istanbul Technical University and Yeditepe University and am retired. Ever since I could remember I have been a teacher. Now I only teach Turkish privately and translate classical novels from English to Turkish. I translated 12 books from English to Turkish. I teach Turkish that is tailored for each student. Each student is unique for me and I know that every student has her/his own way of learning. If you are a beginner I give a short lecture about the history of Turkish and its characteristics and help you find your way in this very logical, consistent and elegant language. You understand that Turkish is different but that does not necessarily mean difficulty. From the first lesson, you start speaking Turkish and find yourself in a dialogue. I can teach at my place and your place (all around Istanbul). I use several books using a grammar-based approach integrated with communicative methods to boost the development of all language skills. But we always focus on TALK, TALK, TALK. As a language learner for many years, I know one can learn, improve and take pleasure in a foreign language only by talking and communicating. It is essential to get direct pleasure from what you have learned. My aim is to motivate and inspire you to speak Turkish ignoring minor mistakes and without thinking grammar. I try to keep in contact with my students almost every day through whatsapp and email. And start some short dialogues.
