As a certified ESL teacher, we were first taught the world of English grammar to ensure we would be able to teach it. I’m an IELTS and TOEFL exam coach and it is here where I continue to hone my grammar skills in order to serve my students well.
Turkish

Turkish

I had been living and working abroad in Turkey for 15 years as an ESL teacher. When I first came to the country, I couldn't speak a single word. After taking a course along with finding Turkish friends to help me practice, I am now able to speak Turkish fluently. Since I am already a certified ESL teacher, I found it quite easy to teach Turkish as a foreign language. I have been teaching Turkish since 2015. I teach the grammar basics from beginner to intermediate level.

Amazing tutor

She is very understanding and caring. Shows me where I'm going wrong and how to improve my English. My learning is significant. I am grateful to have a tutor with strong knowledge. Thank you, Dear Carole.

Silvana, 16 lessons with Carole Lynn
Tutor responded:

Silvana, you are an attentive, focused student. I very much enjoy working with you!

Excellent tutor!

Carole is helping me to prepare for my IELTS exam. Besides from explaining me different subtle grammar aspects, which made it really easy to memorize them, she also shared with me some useful tests tips: strategies for approaching a task and the hidden caveats. And Carole is a positive person; you can feel her good energy during the lesson. I highly recommend Carole as an English tutor!

Vilya, 3 lessons with Carole Lynn
Tutor responded:

Thank you very much, Vilya. It was a pleasure being your tutor!

Excellent Teacher!

Carole is the best teacher ever, she is knowledgeable, nice, patient and helpful. She is able to understand my weaknesses and help me to pass over. I know that I am on the best path with her. I highly recommend her!

Natasa, 7 lessons with Carole Lynn
Tutor responded:

Thank you very much, Natasa! You're a hardworking student and it's a pleasure working with you!

Great Teacher

Carol was a personable teacher who made me feel comfortable during my first lesson! She repeated words when needed, and corrected me if I did not pronounce correctly.

Megan, 2 lessons with Carole Lynn

Great experience.

I contacted Carole Lynn hoping she would help me with my Toefl preparation. We had only a few lessons, but it was enough to bump up my score to the needed level. Carole Lynn is a very patient tutor. It was easy to understand her instruction; she is motivating, inspiring, and pleasant individual. I am happy to know her as a tutor and as a person.

Tatiana, you were a pleasure to work with. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

Testimony from a self-proclaimed advanced English learner

I am working with Carole for my IELTS test and I would recommend her to everyone. She is a native-speaker teacher who has years of experience teaching English as a second language. She is also very friendly, patient and lively. Working with her will bring some joy to your days along with the knowledge. I got 107/120 in TOEFL seven years ago before I came to the States and I feel that I know the frustration of an English learner. First thing first, Carole is a native speaker with a lot of experience working with non-native speakers. You definitely want to work with a native speaker so that you can get all your small mistake corrected. Carole has been very good at picking out small mistakes and incorrect expressions of my English. For example, it is "next January" not "in next January". Those small things will drag down your score. Secondly, Carole has a lot of experience teaching English as a second language. Your English speaking friends will probably tell you: "this is just how I use it and I don't know why". But Carole is able to explain in a way that a learner can understand. For example, I struggled to use "a", "the" and no articles and Carole not only explained it perfectly, but also corrected my mistakes in my essays. Carole knows about these standard exams and I feel much more confident working with her. She can always tell me what the examiners are looking for such that I can get the best possible results. This isn't all about being pragmatic. Actually, my English got better working with her. For example, I know much better about what to write in an introduction paragraph even though some of my academic papers got published - I know a lot of instructors have a "formula", Carole has one too if you need it. But an introduction is more than that. Work with her and you will find out. The bottom line is, if you are looking for a joyful native-speaker tutor with a lot of experience teaching foreigners, Carole is that person.

Joe, 6 lessons with Carole Lynn
Tutor responded:

Thank you so much for your very kind words, Joe. It has been a pleasure working with you. I am glad my lessons helped you improve your English skills. I believe you will succeed in receiving the IELTS band score you hope to achieve and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
