About Alexander

**I am NOT a native Turkish speaker**. It's important to know that, and you should try to find a (qualified) native speaking tutor if you can. I have a CELTA equivalent teaching certification, several years' experience teaching ESL, and learned Turkish while teaching in Istanbul.

I understand how to teach a second language effectively and the specific challenges faced by English speakers learning Turkish (and vice versa).

I have an MA in Turkish Studies from SOAS, University of London, and I work as a freelance Turkish translator.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Turkish

I speak Turkish at an advanced if not native level. I lived in Turkey for a number of years where I worked as a tutor in subjects such as ESL and US university test prep like SAT/ACT and English language competency tests like IELTS/TOEFL. I studied advanced Turkish translation at SOAS, University of London, and have an MA from SOAS in Turkish Studies. I also work as a Turkish-English translator.
