Merhaba! I am a native Turkish teacher who graduated from Mimar Sinan University in Istanbul, where I am from. My parents and their families are from Istanbul as well. I speak a proper, very polite Istanbul dialect, which is highly recommended.
I have lived for a long period in New York, and I am currently living in Spain, so both English and Spanish may be used to support the teaching at a more productive pace. I research about support learning materials, customized to each student's personality and level, such as music, movies and easy-reading texts.
I encourage my students to talk slowly and correctly, focusing on interesting subjects, actual news or their specialty areas. Sometimes we will read from articles and repeat after each other. Also, we will have entertaining dialog and anecdotes, but we will mainly concentrate on learning grammar and pronunciation.
For beginners, I regularly provide entry grammar exams and assist in every step of the way in understanding it, both during the class and off-class. I will take the time to correct your exams and send the feedback beforehand, to have it ready for the following class. With this process, every class is tremendously productive and entertaining; while you are learning along, I will target your weaker areas, so there's no delay in the learning process.
For more advanced students, I prepare lessons beforehand, too, so we can have some conversational time and help with higher-level homework, as well. I will recommend more challenging learning materials, such as music, movies and books.
