Hi everyone! I'm Zeynep from Turkey. I was born and raised in Istanbul. I have been teaching English and Turkish for 7 years. I have a BA in American Culture and Literature. I work as an English teacher in a lovely school but at the same time I teach my native language, Turkish to foreigners. I have a certificate of 'Teaching Turkish as a Foreign Language' from one of the best universities here.
I love teaching and learning languages. Currently I'm learning German and Albanian so I have knowledge of language acquisition. I try to transfer all my experience in language learning processes to my students.
I believe that culture is a remarkable element at language learning. So I help my students to have some insight about Turkish Culture.
Traveling is my favourite hobby and traveling and teaching at the same time would be my dream job definition.
I graduated from Istanbul University, American Culture and Literature. After graduation, I got the Pedagogycal Formation Diploma to be qualified as an English Teacher. I worked as an English teacher in high schools, elementary schools, and some language schools. Later on, I decided to teach my native language. To do that, I completed a program called 'Teaching Turkish as a Foreign Language' from Marmara University. Then, I started working as a teacher teaching 2 languages. I give private lessons in Turkish and in English.
I believe every student is unique and the teacher should first analyse the learning style of the student. I plan my lessons according to the needs and interests of my students. I also provide online materials for my students.
I prefer to apply the Communicative Language Teaching Method unless the student is studying for a grammar exam. Than, we could make the grammar our priority.

Her öğrencinin öğrenme biçiminin eşsiz olduğuna inanıyorum. Öğretmen olarak ilk işimiz, öğrencinin öğrenme tarzını analiz etmek olmalı. Ben de derslerimi öğrencilerin ihtiyaçları ve ilgi alanları doğrultusunda planlıyorum. Yazılı bir sınavı geçmek zorunda olmadıkça iletişimsel tekniklere yere veriyorum derslerimde. Online materyaller sağlıyorum ve elimden geldiğince eğlenceli öğrenme ortamları oluşturmaya çalışıyorum.
