About Melek Zeynep


Bio

I am a long-term homeschool parent/teacher. After my daughters entered college, I decided to return to school myself and earned a BA in History, minoring in Middle East Studies and Religious Studies. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May 2016 and was honored to be inducted as a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and Phi Alpha Theta Historical Honor Society for my dedication to historical studies.

I am a long-term homeschool parent/teacher. After my daughters entered college, I decided to return to school myself and earned a BA in History, minoring in Middle East Studies and Religious Studies. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May 2016 and was honored to be inducted as a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and Phi Alpha Theta Historical Honor Society for my dedication to historical studies.

I am a past guest lecturer at the Fasli Baher Girls School in Istanbul, Turkey, where I teach high school and college-aged students African and Middle East Studies, Religious History, Religious Studies, and English. There I have worked with students from all over the world so I have adopted several teaching methods for students as they come from so many educational backgrounds. I do not let language become a barrier to education. Where there is a will to learn, there is a method to teach. It's my job to find it.

My true love is history and government, but I have not met a subject that I did not like (or a cookie either). I love to teach and currently have three successful college and high school students to show for the effort. I will come to each lesson with a plan, but I know that sometimes plans have to change to ensure the student is comfortable with the work. This flexibility leads to confidence and that is the goal to me. I do provide homework, but not at every session. I am known for pop quizzes to review reading assignments. Any online source which I refer to has been prescreened for age-appropriate skill level and content. My homeschool background and current college tutoring work allow me to work with nearly any grade student.

I like to spend my first session getting to know the student. By connecting with them I can assess their learning style and quickly figure out ways to help them learn. I lean on positive feedback, guiding questions for self-learning, and lots of cyber "high-fives" for encouragement and confidence.

My schedule allows me a flexible time frame centered on the activi

Abby, 2 lessons with Melek Zeynep

Wonderful Teacher!

Melek has helped motivate my daughter, she’s very excited to do the class sessions. My daughter was struggling with math, she has improved a lot. Thank you!

Amira, 67 lessons with Melek Zeynep

Awesome, patient, and knowledgeable

Melek was a very patient tutor, she would review the subject over and over again if I would have asked her to. She is kind and overall the best, she knew her stuff and she seemed to like doing what she does. Most tutors get straight to the point and that's it, but Melek will go into depth on the subject and gives good examples and will make sure you understand the subject no matter long it takes. If you haven't decided on a tutor, pick Melek, you will not regret it. She is the best of the best!
