About Viki

I have 12 years of experience in teaching at college level, and 5 years of experience in private tutoring. I had students ranging from Elementary to high school in private tutoring. I am a patient, dedicated, ambitious teacher. In my opinion, the role of a tutor is to help the student help himself. Ultimately, tutoring should be a catalyst that enables the student to learn from the tutor and then be able to work the problems on his own.

I provide private instruction to help students improve their educational performance, develop study skills, prepare for academic examinations or gain occupational skills. I offer feedback, assess students’ academic needs and craft individualized plans that support learning success.

Are you struggling to be a successful student? Don't get discouraged, it isn't magic! But it does require desire, dedication and a lot of work. If you want learn how to become a successful student, then you've come to the right place. I work with students to develop skills that will provide everything to learn how to learn more effectively.
Active listening, concentration, reading comprehension, proper notetaking, stress management, time management, testing taking techniques, and memorization are only a few of the topics I teach to my students.

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.

IELTS

I have been in the US for last 11 years. In the summers I go back to my native country, Turkey. I teach in both countries. I teach both Turkish and English as a second language to kids and adults. My own TOEFL score was 580 when the top score was 600. I also spend 3 years at Harvard University as a visiting scholat. In Boston, I also tutored people learning English as a second language

Political Science

I am holding a Ph.d Degree on political science. I am teaching courses on government and history for the last 12 years.

Public Speaking

At universty level, I teach effective speach courses, leadership courses as well as effective presentation courses. I had helped many students who ere shy to speak in class to self confident presenters. On one hand, I develop self esteem of these individuals and on the other I teach them techniques and methods of effective presentation and public speech.

Religion

In my different universities I taught courses like "World Religions", 'Civilizations", "Islam and Modernity", "Women and Religion" classes. I wrote a Ph.D thesis on relationship between Islam and Capitalism in which I also compare Islam and Protestantism. Since I am a comparativist by training, I use interdisciplinary, comparitivist methods in teaching. In my personal life also, my close relatives are from different religions.

Social Studies

I graduated from a university with bachelor degree on Social Studies. I also help students to prepare GED exams. I tutored in social studies for 3 years, I tutored many students, including my own brother, who became a lawyer now.
