I'm newly back in the US after spending the last 4 years in Turkey. I taught English for one year at a language school there, and for two years in a private university, and have also taught businesspeople, general learners, and English for special purposes. I love learning languages, and bring my enthusiasm and understanding of how to learn another language into my lessons. I speak advanced German and Turkish, intermediate French, and basic Russian and Spanish. I know what it's like to live in another country with a different language than your own, and can help you achieve the goals you want.

I received TEFL certification from the Wisconsin English as a Second Language Institute. For Turkish, I have translated a short story published in the English-language compilation Istanbul in Women's Short Stories, and translated magazine articles for a Turkish airline's in-flight magazine for more than two years.

English

I taught ESL professionally for three years at a private language school and at a university in Istanbul, Turkey. I also taught private lessons during my time there for general English, business English, and English for special purposes. I currently volunteer for some five hours a week with adult diploma and GED students at the Metro South school in Bloomington, Minnesota.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL professionally for three years at a private language school and at a university in Istanbul, Turkey. I also taught private lessons during my time there for general English, business English, and English for special purposes. I am certified to teach English as a Second Language; having received a TEFL certificate from the Wisconsin as a Second Language Institute in August, 2009.

Turkish

I lived in Turkey for close to four years, and became fluent in the language. Prior to that, I formally studied Turkish in classes for one year at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. From teaching myself and assisting friends, I have learned what resources are available for English speakers to learn Turkish, and can draw upon both my own experience as well as my background in teaching English as a second language to help those studying Turkish succeed.
