There is one major rule for my guitar lessons which is ALL LESSONS ARE IN ENGLISH !!!

This is why most of my students are either childrens of expats working in Istanbul or students studying in colleges and private schools whose official language is English.

If you are interested in learning how to play guitar (either classic, acoustic or electric), please feel free to get in touch with me.

After the first lesson If we both agree that we can move further, we shake hands and plan your progress together.

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.

Well-Structured English and Russian classes for all levels
The courses are designed to help you improve your level of English or Russian. Before we start classes together, I will give you a test to determine your current level. Following the results of test, I usually prepare program that is more fit to you. Of course, I take also suggestion on what you want to learn and achieve. Usually my classes are structured in such a way to both learn grammar and expand your vocabulary. I pay a lot of attention to speaking and writing as well. At the end of the class I assign small homework for you to better understand the material covered in the class. I know homework doesn’t sound fun, but that’s efficient way to learn anything is to repeat it again and again. As part of speaking, I prefer giving situations in real life and then play out dialogue that relates to that situation.i can guarantee that you are going to both learn the language and have fun.
