I have been teaching English as a foreign language for ten years. I have taught English to elementary, pre-intermediate, intermediate and upper-intermediate learners in different universities in Turkey. I also prepared students for TOEFL, IELTS and GMAT (only writing section) exams. I have developed both exams and the curriculum and also designed syllabus at the universities where I have worked. I have received an Outstanding Teacher Award 2018 from Koc University.
My lessons are tailor-made. Depending on the needs of my learners, I use different methods and techniques. Communicative Language Teaching Method is the one I frequently use. After receiving input from a reading text or a listening audio track, students produce oral or written language. I pick up the content considering students' interests. I use up-to-date and interesting topics. For instance, I get help from Ted Talks, newspaper articles and course books.
