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 teachers, consulate officers, international business people, and also travelers. 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 surveyor 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,s 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!

Russian as a foreign lanuage: speaking, listening, reading, writing
I offer lessons for all levels. I am used to teaching Russian without passing through an intermediate language, so that students acclimatize as quickly as possible to the particular sounds of that language. This method has been proven in the past. Students quickly acquire bases for communication. In the same way, the oral expression is for me primordial. I teach with fun and authentic materials, adapted to each level, and related to the interests of each student.

Amy
Experienced ESL Teacher: Native American Ready to Help!
Are you looking to take your English or your child’s English to the next level? I have over 5 years of public classroom experience and have taught over 7000 online English classes. I use the video platform Zoom, which is an interactive way for me to share my screen. We both can write and type on the screen, play videos, visit websites for enrichment, etc. Before a student starts, I have them take a free assessment that measure 4 different areas of English learning. From those results, I am able to see strengths and areas that need improvement. I then create custom lessons based off of the assessment and the goals of students and parents.

Salut, avant tout je me présente. Je me nomme Majda, une jeune fille marocaine, assistante de conversation française à Barcelone, puis à Madrid. D'ailleurs, j'avais suivi mes études supérieures à l'Université Ibn Tofail (au Maroc), et après avoir eu en fin de cursus un diplôme de la licence fondamentale du département de langue et littérature françaises, option linguistique, j'ai pu commencer mon stage d'assistanat à l'étranger (en Espagne).
