About Sehmuz

My love for teaching comes from a passion for lifelong learning. As a PhD, I know that hard work, dedication to learning, and staying disciplined lead to success. As a college professor and formally as an elementary school teacher, I have enjoyed helping hundreds of students achieve their goals.

My secret to successful teaching is connecting with my students, understanding what they already know, what they need to learn, and making sure they consistently progress towards achieving their learning goals.

As an educational psychologist and a native speaker of Turkish with a BA in teaching in Turkey, I am an effective tutor for teaching Turkish and study skills. I have had success working with kids and adults and I enjoy both populations.

I am generally available to tutor online, but I would be happy to meet in person as well if the travel distance is reasonable. My preferred tutoring hours are between 9 AM to 9 PM, but exceptions can be made. My base rate is $50 an hour for in person and online lessons.

I am a native of Turkey and I have a BA in teaching from a Turkish University. In addition, I have a certificate to teach English as a foreign language. I really enjoy the experience of both learning and teaching a language. Finally, I have an MA in Educational Psychology and I'm getting a PhD in Educational Psychology within two months, so I understand teaching, learning, and motivation very well.

I have an MA in Educational Psychology and I'm getting a PhD in Educational Psychology within two months, so I understand teaching, learning, and motivation very well. I have taught college level courses on study skills in the United States for five years. Finally, as a reflective high achieving learner, I have developed a thorough understanding of effective study skills through personal experiences as well.

Contact me for more details! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals.
