About me

I am a professional English and Turkish language teacher willing to work as a teacher where she will be able to apply her teaching skills and experience by learning more about teaching. I have been teaching Turkish to foreigners for ten years actively. I like not only the language itself but also the culture . It is a kind of exchanging the culture. I learn alot while teaching as well. I am quite interested in cross cultures and teaching my own beside the language. I am always ready to answer all the questions about Turkish and culture.

Teaching Approach

I have been teaching Turkish to foreigners for 10 years. I do believe that every learners has a unique way of learning, needs. So far, I have prepared a tailor made course for each one. These courses consist of 'Survival', ''Business'', ''just touristic needs'', ''Academic purposes'', ''Complete learning'' ''Just oral practice''

1- First, I learn the needs of my learner and discuss the way he learns the best, what he really needs and the pace of his/her learning. After getting all this data, I understand the strong and weak point of the learner and share it with him/her. In this way, all teaching process is much easier and goal oreiented. If the learner has difficulty in speaking, I maka preparation for making it stronger. Each time I prepare the lessons and send it beforehand.

2- After each class I give homework to my learners and want them to send me back a few days before the class. In this way, I correct it sendt it back and give the feed back. We dont waste our time in the skype session.

3- I always use the eclectic approach. The writing, speaking, grammar and listening are all equal ın the first classes . Then decide according to the pace of learner and needs.

4- In my trial class, I just prepare a survival Turkish class. I both give hints about the language and culture. After the first introductory class, students will be able to

- order food in the restaurant

- greet in Turkish

- Take a taxi and tell where they want to go

- Ask the price and understand the answer

- Use everyday vocabularies.

Gul really tries to push the boundaries and gives extensive feedback. She is also very helpful and talkative outside lessons, and tries to connect with you in a friendly way

It was very convenient that my tutor was so flexible regarding study programme. Because I am already on a advanced level, a different approach was needed for me. this switch was easily made by her.

Gül is a very good teacher and explains Turkish in a very easy to understand fashion. Although I struggled at times, Gül is very patient and our lesson was very fun. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gül to anyone who wants to learn Turkish.
