About me

Hello, Turkish learners! I am a professional Turkish and English teacher and a sociologist with a Ph.D. degree.

Qualifications & Experience

I have lived in four foreign countries. My first long-term stay was in Nebraska, USA as a foreign exchange student in 2000-2001.

I became an English teacher in 2005 in Istanbul. However, I always wanted to experience living in new countries. In 2006, I was accepted to both English Language and Literature and Sociology MA’s in Brno, Czech Republic. My first experiences in teaching Turkish correspond to these years when I was teaching Turkish through tandem lessons with Czechs. These were bilingual conversations, and I owe a lot to these moments, which taught me a lot what is the best way to transmit the language in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

In 2009, I conducted an ethnographic research in Hamburg for my PhD thesis. I participated in Turkish-German tandem language courses. After having returned to the Czech Republic in 2010, I started teaching Turkish and English at a language school in Brno while I was doing my PhD. In 2013, I moved back to Istanbul for six months and taught English and Turkish at a language school.

Currently, I am living in Belgrade and learning Serbian.

Teaching Approach

I believe that with my experiences and love for languages, I can surely help you to speak up. As a patient and concise teacher, I:

- develop and implement individual lesson plans for structured and conversational sessions.

- use a variety of written and audio materials, primarily Elementary Turkish in 2 Volumes by Kurtuluş Öztopçu.

- assign homework and provide regular feedback to students.

- clarify complex grammar questions through examples from everyday conversations

-make the language learning process less theoretical and more practical.
