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.
