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.

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.
Just drop me a message and i can give you more details about my lessons. I guarantee you 100% percent satisfaction with my lessons.

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.

Up until now, I have done three lessons with Esra. I am very happy with it; she is punctual, professional and what I find very important: she easily adapts. If she notices I master a skill, she'll move on to the next one swiftly.

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 :)

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.

As a complete beginner, I am very lucky to have Aysegül as my Turkish tutor. Learning from her is like being in Turkey with a polite, patient and knowledgeable guide. Aysegül is tremendously understanding and always encouraging. Oftentimes, she will ask me a question in Turkish, and due to my baby-level skills in the language, I'll often give her a blank, clueless stare. This does not bother her. She never judges or becomes annoyed at my lack of skills. She just smiles and asks me again or gives hints in English to get me to understand what is being said. Then I don't feel bad or foolish. The thing I like about her immersive approach is this is what foreigners will encounter when in Turkey. If you are serious about learning Turkish, you must speak Turkish most of the time. In order to learn the language, you must listen - and respond - in the language you want to learn. This is her approach and I love it, even if I look like a clueless potato when she asks me questions. Most of the lessons with Aysegül are structured in an immersive way and it is ideal. Since I am not in Turkey, talking with her regularly is the next best thing. Plus, she will kindly correct me when I make a mistake (unlike many of the tremendously polite Turkish population). Her lesson plans are highly structured, logical and abundant. She will go through the materials slowly with you until you understand it. She is always willing to answer questions without annoyance or judgment. After my first lesson, she sent me a ton of materials at no extra charge and without me asking for it. One was a really cool program which helps you learn vocabulary. 100% generous! Aysegül is one of the hardest working and helpful people I have encountered. She is generous to a fault, and despite me trying to compensate her for the extra free hour of time she spent on tutoring me, she refuses any additional payment. (I'll find a way to compensate her, though, just wait!) I am positive your experience will also delight you, so give her a try. You will learn great amounts of Turkish in no time at all. I look forward to many more lessons with her as long as she will allow me to be her eager student.

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.

Learning another language is not easy, but it is possible.

Through my own experience and research, I would like to show you how pleasant learning a language can be.

Being a multilingual couple ourselves and with my professional experience in managing Thomas Cook's online reputation, I learned to fluently speak several languages.

Furthermore, through our experiences, I have learned and developed the art of teaching.

I guarantee rapid and effective progress.

If you want to learn a new language, in a pleasant way, please sign up!

Loris is a great teacher! He is patient, knowledgeable and has a great structure to teach the Turkish language. He has a plan from lesson one, he detailed the process to me before we began and gave me a background explanation of the origins of Turkish and where it can be found. I was very nervous and apprehensive about learning a new language, especially Turkish. Loris put me at ease from the very beginning and made learning easier than I expected! It wasn't overwhelming and the practice homework was not excessive but enjoyable. I was able to learn new words and put them into practice from the first lesson. I look forward to our meetings and I don't feel exhausted after the lessons. This is very important to me when learning not just a language but really learning anything! I have been living in Turkey for almost 2 years and I thought I could "get by" without learning Turkish, ever since I started my lessons with Loris, it has opened up a whole new world here in Turkey! Now I only regret that I didn't start learning earlier. Had I known how enjoyable it would be I would have started earlier! If you are thinking about learning Turkish I highly recommend Loris as your teacher. Thank you Loris!

Before deciding to take private lessons, I had been learning turkish by myself seriously for about two years but I definitively do not regret starting the private lessons which are way more efficient and pleasant. I have now been studying turkish with Aysegül for more than 4 months. I would greatly recommend choosing Aysegül as a turkish tutor. She is both serious and well organized (the lessons are well prepared, she also provides the students with useful summary's of the lessons as well as some additional cultural or educative content, she give the students some homework that she always correct before the next lesson) as well as a kind, patient and didactic teacher.

I have been Aysegul's student for 6 months and I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. You can immediately tell she has a passion for language and education which is very encouraging. She always provides context and additional information around Turkish culture which helps you understand the background of what you are learning and also helps you connect with what you've learnt. I would absolutely recommend Aysegul for beginners, intermediate or advanced students looking for a kind, patient and knowledgable tutor.
