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)

French private lessons by university graduate in Letters
French private lessons are for students wishing: - consolidate their bases in grammar, othograph - improve their language skills (allophone students) - improve their speaking skills (conversation classes) -profect the written expression - ECR exams - prepare for the written examinations at the end of the studies (maturity, certificate of completion) - help with the writing of works of maturity (or other works of end of studies), of dissertation - work on argumentative texts - acquire a method to analyze literary texts - fill gaps - improve their spelling - prepare for oral exams (maturity, compulsory leaving certificates) - learn how to perform bibliographic research For help with writing: the goal is above all to acquire effective tools. Students will learn how to structure their ideas, argue in a coherent (and convincing) way and enrich their vocabulary. For the corrections of end of studies work: so that the meeting with the student is at the most profitable, I ask him to send me his writings before the meeting. Apart from my presence with the student, any course involves a preparation time before and after the lesson, including the work that I correct. My goal is to design an individualized course, so I take the time to write detailed comments on corrected work or tips to ensure maximum success for everyone. For example, an editorial correction can easily be the subject of a detailed commentary of 4 typewritten pages. For adults (FLE): In order to optimally prepare the first ones, I take the initiative to inform myself in advance of their objectives / expectations. Whether to practice speaking in everyday life, the professional world or to practice oral presentations, I prepare either PPT or technical sheets in advance that I send by mail ( after booking on the website). The other alternative is to make a PV of the course that I send (or that I print). Giving importance to keeping a written record on the one hand to better memorize the topics covered, on the other hand to better assimilate the spelling. Of a general nature, a concrete situation that responds to the learner's needs is the starting point. From this situation, I address the essential grammatical points.

English for professionals (refresher, fluency, conversation ...)
I offer you my services to make you truly performant oral / written in English. If you must use English as part of your professional activity and you do not feel comfortable ... If you're tired of being spotted right away like French ... If you do not know still not when to use the present perfect / the preterite .... I am here to help you. * Training linguist and author of textbook as such. => I am not a student in L1 who had a good grade in the Baccalaureate. I am a practicing, qualified teacher and holder of National Education. Teaching can not be improvised. This is something I feel I do well with 23 years of experience. I remind parents that to have 10/20 to the Baccalaureate, just have the level A2 (which is theoretically expected at the end of 3rd) so I let you imagine the despair of engineering students who must get at least 750 to the TOEIC! It's the equivalent of level B2!) * Daily monitoring possible via internet. * Each course gives rise to a detailed report. * In-depth knowledge of the European Framework. (A1 => C2) * Work of language activities. * Specialized in "phonology": intonation, word accent, links ... The grammar of the oral. * Adaptation to all levels: => College - High school: beginner, false beginner ... => Post-baccalaureate: TOEIC preparation, TOEFL, iELTS, Cambridge First Certificate, Advanced Certificate. => Oral and writings of the grandes écoles such as ENA => Oral and written business schools (Tremplin-Passerelle ...) => Engineering school: preparation for TOIEC.
