    English Language & Reading Comprehension Course to Advance English for Students Pursuing University Abroad from American born Native Speaker

    This is a Literature based English course most suited for high school students with an intermediate to advanced level of preexisting English knowledge; students pursuing university options abroad or English-teaching universities nationally will find this course especially useful.

    This program is based on the teaching practices and curriculum of American secondary school language education. Its aims are to strengthen reading comprehension ability, develop critical thinking skills, improve expression in a foreign language and encourage deeper analysis, with a secondary focus on vocabulary expansion and grammar correction.

    Students will be asked to complete reading and writing assignments at home followed by an in-depth discussion of the material and further exercises during the lesson. If a student regularly fails to complete given homework or is unwilling to learn, I will not be continuing with lessons.

    This class is also available for University students looking to perfect their grasp of the English language, and can easily be adjusted for 7th and 8th grade levels, given students can express themselves somewhat comfortably in English.

    About me:

    Hello, I am an American-born bi-native speaker of both English and Turkish. I have received my primary and secondary education in the USA. Currently, I reside in Istanbul while I attend Boğaziçi University.
    I have 3 years of intermittent experience tutoring children of all ages in English; I also have experienced first-hand the education system of an English-speaking country and the application process, i.e. what Universities expect from applicants.
    I noticed that the current education system favors rote memorization and quantitative skills but tends to overlook skills such as the analysis of a text and the presentation of that analysis that admissions offices of universities abroad and professors teaching at esteemed schools nationally look for. When I realized this deficiency I also realized I had the skills and experience to close this gap for motivated, aspiring academics who want to broaden their horizons both nationally and internationally.
    I am also available for speaking practice, homework help, and SAT/ACT preparation. (The SAT and ACT are university entry exams in the United States. My scores: SAT=2240/2400, %1st percentile; ACT=32/36)

    Hatice
    LEARNING TURKISH IS EASY AND FUN WITH A PROFESSIONAL TEACHER
    Hi, I am Hatice from Istanbul I am a native speaker of Turkish. 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 the secrets and beauties of it. 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 diologues in the areas the student is interested. I am from Istanbul but I traveled almost all cities, mountains, rivers, lakes of Turkey. I am a person who like less traveled roads and back streets. Travelling 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 target 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 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 are 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 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 my place and your you 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 of 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 and inspire you to speak Turkish ignoring minor mistakes and without thinking grammar. I try to keep contact with my student almost every day through whatsapp and email. And start some short dialogues.

    English Private Tuitions (Adults and School Students)
    I am specialized in teaching English to adults and students in international and private schools. For adults, this class offers a general English practice or IELTS test preparation depending on what the student is looking for. The lessons will first start by evaluating their abilities in the four main skills (Speaking, Listening, Writing and Reading) then we can work together to plan the weekly lessons accordingly. As for the school pupils, the student shall present his/her previous test papers and results to identify his/her weaknesses and strengths. The second step is to follow the school's book(s) and curriculum (unless the parents wish otherwise). The classes consists of test revision, homework assistance and lots of practice. Any communication occurring during the class must be in English. The class usually consists of one student.

    General and Business English with a Native Speaker.
    I'm an energetic, committed, and fully CELTA qualified teacher who has a passion for teaching English and a track record of excellence. After teaching English in Istanbul for over 2 years, I understand both the excitement and the challenges that accompany learning a new language and how to effectively use cultural experiences to make the lesson successful and beneficial. In my classes, I typically set aside five to ten minutes at the start of each class for students to share their “highs” and “lows” for the week, a ritual that my students appreciate enormously.

    Geoffrey
    English as a Foreign Language Tutoring with a Cultural Focus
    I provide individualized English language tutoring for students, adults and business professionals. As a native English speaker, I can provide insight into natural and correct English usage as well as American culture. I have TEFL certification, as well as teaching and tutoring experience, and thus can adapt lessons to fit a range of skill levels and language learning goals. As an avid language learner who speaks four languages and is in the process of learning a fifth (Turkish), I am fully aware of the obstacles that face language learners and can help students overcome them. While lessons are primarily focused on improving student's speaking and comprehension skills, regular focus on reading and writing exercises can be included to assist learners who encounter written English in their jobs or studies. Lastly, lessons can include a focus on English language resources such as literature, music and film, especially if learners are looking to expand their knowledge of the English speaking world.
