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.

English and Spanish lessons from a Native teacher/İstanbul'da ve online özel İspanyolca dersi/ DELE/ özel yerli öğretmen / Clases de español
My Spanish and English lessons will be skill and grammar focused. I will help the students to develop their language skills so that they can use them in real contexts. For the DELE and Cambridge assessment lessons the students must have a good command of the language because I will prepare them to know the structure of the tests while they practice and develop the main skills and sub skills needed to have a good result. İspanyolca derslerim beceri ve dilbilgisi odaklı olacak. Öğrencilerin, dili gerçek anlamda kullanmak için dil becerilerini geliştirmelerine yardımcı olacağım. DELE dersleri için öğrencilerin iyi derecede İspanyolca bilmesi gerekir ve onları testin yapısını bilmeye hazırlayacağım ve iyi bir sonuç elde etmek için gereken temel becerilerini ve alt becerilerini çalıştıracağım.
