Hello everybody. I am a native Turkish speaker. I growed up in Istanbul. Also I am a Turkish Language and Literature teacher/academic with 12 years of experience. I have a BA and MA degree. Now I am writing my doctoral dissertation. It's about 'Turkish Novels'.

I have 6 years experience in teaching Turkish to foreigners. Also I have a "Teaching Turkish as a Foreign Language Certicate". Now I am a teaching assistant in a university in Turkey.

Teaching is my passion. I motivate my students very well. I give them homeworks and follow their progress. My lessons are cheerful. My students usually say they feel relax in my lessons.

I have written a master thesis, two books and now I've been writing my PhD thesis. Turkish literature is my profession. When you made a lot of progress we will read and discuss on Turkish literary. I am a huge fan of Dostoyevksi. I think he is the best author off all times. My favourites from Turkish literary are Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar and İhsan Oktay Anar. Maybe we will be discussing their writings one day, who knows :)
I am a patient and cheerful teacher. Because I really love my job. I believe that I'm making language learning enjoyable and easy.

I gave lessons to so many adults. They were from several countries. I can understand my students' needs and organize the lessons according to my students' interests, wishes and their goals. Because I know that: everybody has not same reasons for learning Turkish.
Also I've studied with 12-18 aged teens for two years. I know their needs and I am good at getting along teenagers :)

I know that reality: every student is not same, so I schedule my lessons to each students' individual needs. I know that how a lesson goes more cheerful and educational. I'm using whiteboard in the lessons. (It's essential to explain grammatical points.) Also I am using a lesson book, pictures, flashcards, videos, recordings and and etc. I give homeworks to my students. I'm following my students' progresses.

Now, you know me some more :)

If you're still looking at my profile now probably you are interested in my Turkish courses. I know you are irresolute between to take a trial lesson or not. I know, it is a bit hard to find the right teacher that you can agree. And also I know you think whether learning Turkish is a good idea or not. I am here for meeting with you and answering your questions :) And also...

- I am going to assess your level
- We will find the best way you to learn Turkish language

After you've booked the trial lesson, please give me some information about you and your Turkish language level. If you demand, I am going to apply placement test.

Görüşmek üzere :)

Hello Everybody,

This is Sumru. I am a native Turkish speaker from Istanbul. I graduated from Translation Studies in 2014 and speak English and Spanish. I lived in Madrid for half a year and in different parts of Australia for a year.

Also the reason I chose Translation Studies is that I have a great interest in languages, including etymology, linguistics, phonetics and cultural aspects of them and I love not only learning about them, but also teaching them.

Becoming a professional translator requires a better command of your native language than your second language, so the Turkish I will be teaching will be more comprehensive than that of a native who hasn't studied languages.

I have been teaching Turkish online in another platform, and now I am on colanguage. I offer individual lessons for students, based on their goals, needs, language levels, and some other factors.

My availability varies every week, so please feel free to contact me to determine the best time for you.

Please introduce your history with Turkish, what kind of classes you are looking for, and any preferences (subject etc.) for the first lesson before or after booking a trial.

I hope to meet you very soon and share this journey with you. Cheers!

My lesson with Sumru has been great. Her language background makes her a great tutor. She can explain everything very properly and logically and that works wonders for me to understand Turkish. I love practicing with her. Also, I had problems with my schedule but she was really understanding about it and helpful. She answered all my questions patiently, cleared my mind about my confusions and worries, paid a great attention to my needs and goals and tailored the lessons according to what I need. Already planning to get regular lessons. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I am a native speaker of Turkish so you will learn correct Turkish. I combine social learning and experiential learning approaches. Social learning in the sense that interaction between learner and I is prevailing and that the learner receives support from me. Experiential learning in the sense that learner is provided with an opportunity to develop new experiences.

All age groups and all levels are welcome.

Hope to share a journey with you to help you learn Turkish with confidence.

Türkçe ana dilimdir, dolayısı ile düzgün Türkçe öğreneceksiniz. Sosyal öğrenme ve tecrübe ederek öğrenme yaklaşımlarını birleştirmekteyim. Sosyal öğrenme benimle öğrenci arasındaki etkileşimin egemenliği ve öğrencinin benden destek almasını içerir. Tecrübe ederek öğrenme ise öğrencinin yeni tecrübeler geliştirmesine olanak sağlanmasi anlamındadır.

Tüm yaş grupları ve tüm düzeyler davetlidir.

Sizinle, Türkçe'yi kendinize güvenerek öğrenmenizde yardımcı olabileceğim bir yolculuk paylaşmayı umarım.

It is always a real challenge for a teacher to work with foreign students. A teacher has to display great skill and ability to organize the teaching process in a correct way in order to build a good learning environment and to foster an enthusiasm for and appreciation of the subject being studied. Eyyup Coskun possesses a keen ability to manage all these complicated aspects of teaching process. His behavior and teaching style are flexible , balanced and appropriate. He successfully combines such qualities as being sensitive to his students as well as being able to motivate them and hear their requires. His teaching approach can be characterised as "blended learning" with traditional "classroom" technologies integrated with computer mediated learning activities. It helps to increase the interaction between the participants (teacher - student) in the educational process and to develop a unique content adapted to the student's needs. I'm very grateful to my Teacher and I appreciate our co-working a lot! With best regards to Eyyup Coskun, Mila

Eyyup C. Eyyup C. TR

Thank you very much for your nice comments Mila. Studying Turkish with you is also a great experience for me. It makes me happy to bring your superior ability in language learning to Turkish. Best wishes.

Hi!
My name is Ibrahim and I am here to teach you the essentials of Turkish Language. I got my university degree on law at Ankara University and subsequently finished my degree on MBA at Loyola University Quinlan school of Business in Chicago, USA. After professional life, I started teaching my language turkish to foreginers who want to speak turkish fluently. I have been teaching Turkish for over 5 years in a customized way with tailor-made course design. I use course materials produced mainly by myself as well as other grammer books and visuals. I use interactive teaching methods and encourage my students to speak confidently as well as to ask anything they have in mind. I also follow my students progress through home-works and reviews of the last lesson. After all, I give importance for my lessons to be a fun environment facilitating learning.
And now, it is your turn to take your part in my class at your earliest convenience to see how it works.

I am looking forward to seeing you in my class.

Hello everybody, I am Revan. I am a native Turkish speaker. I am an experienced Turkish instructor who has taught Turkish as a foreign language in Turkey and the U.S.A.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. in the same field. I hold both DELTA and TESOL certificates, both of which are world-known language teaching specialization trainings. I have been teaching English as a foreign language for more than ten years and teaching Turkish as a foreign language for over five years. As an English language teacher, I have worked with different age groups and specialized with teens and adults. I have been working for one of the top universities in Turkey as a language instructor. As for Turkish language teaching, I worked as a Fulbright Language Teaching Assistant and taught Turkish at Amherst College, UMass- Amherst, Smith College, and Mt. Holyoke College.

In years, I have learned that there is no one specific teaching method as all methods are unique to the needs and abilities of the students. That's why I apply methods ranging from communicative language teaching to flipped-classroom based on the learners' needs.

Esra is an excellent teacher. She is very enthusiastic, patient, works very creatively and responds very well to individual learning needs. Her communication skills are excellent and she has a wide range of interests and knowledge as well as excellent creative skills which she uses to make the classes interesting and stimulating. I am enjoying learning about Turkish culture, food, and many aspects of life which brings the lessons to life. Esra's English is excellent which is very beneficial for an almost beginner in Turkish. I would highly recommend Esra as a Turkish teacher, especially if you want to develop everyday conversational skills and engage with books, films, ideas etc. I am really enjoying my Turkish classes with Esra as they are both relaxed and inspiring

Hi, My name is Ayşegül. I have graduated from Hacettepe University the department of English Language Teaching. I'm an English teacher in a private institution now. I can teach both English and Turkish.

The first and foremost I want to start with one of my favourite quotation from Richard Henry Dana(!) (I'm not sure whether this quotation belong to him or not, but I liked it. :) “He who dares to teach must never cease to learn.” First of all we as a teacher must improve ourselves about everything such as cultural knowledge, technology, best seller book, new novel etc. We should keep up with the time and try to understand our students.
Then we should know students’ interests, needs, backgrounds and their level of English / Turkish. If we know the aforementioned things, it would be more easy for us to decide what kind of materials we can use to attract their attention. Also, one of the key point is that we should motivate the students to learn. As a teacher we should teach our students why they learn the language/grammar/vocabulary etc. rather than just memorization. Regarding teaching method, we can use student centered methods. We should use examples from the real life and they can broaden students’ knowledge. Also using examples from the real life, help students to internalize the examples. I strongly believe that we should make our students acquire the language from all aspects including reading, listening, writing and speaking.
All in all, as a teacher we have lots of things to do. One of the most important responsibilities of us is to help students to understand that they have the enough power and capacity to learn a language if they are decided enough.

For more than 15 years I have been working as a language teacher in Istanbul, Berlin and Hamburg.

After studying Spanish Linguistics at the University of Ankara, I trained as a language teacher for Turkish and Spanish at the DILMER language school in Istanbul.

My methodology focuses on the language skills of the students.
Grammar is trained through direct application and thus stays in the memory.
History, culture and literature offer us a lot to talk about and soon you will become confident in using the language.

Learning a language means learning to speak!

Umut is a wonderful teacher. He is very friendly, perceptive, and knowledgeable about the background and development of the Turkish language. Since he speaks several languages and has also taught Spanish, he has a varied linguistic experience which contributes to his excellent teaching skills. He listens to the student's requirements. I highly recommend Umut to any student of Turkish.

Hello all! I am Yunus and i am here to teach you my native language. My education system is on a systematical way and easy to understand. I use course books, workbooks and audio files too. I won't just give grammatical lessons, but also speaking and writing practices too.

I use many technological tools for my class.

I give lessons not just to adults but also children too.
If you are in a very different time zone (like USA, Japan, Korea, Australia etc.) just send me a message to coordinate the lesson time.

I can recommend Yunus for all who likes innovative and tailored way to learn language. I struggled with my Turkish since few years already. I tried different methods, schools, and private tutors. Finally, with Yunus we managed to break the spell and I’m able now to engage real life conversations. Yunus takes his time to understand and identify students struggle and he adapts lessons to orient them accordingly. It’s always engaging fun to discuss with him various topics that he finds may be interesting for the student. Well organized, intelligent, and very practical in his approach to the language as a skill and art, he is a great teacher and very interesting person. I’m glad I started to work with him.
