Sobre mí

Hi! I am a native English speaker, born in London. I hold a degree in English Language Teaching, and hold 10 years experience teaching to foreign learners of English. I live in Istanbul, Turkey with my wife and baby son, Demir Robert. I love teaching, and I love meeting new people.
In my time teaching, I have worked with teens and adults in one-to-one tutoring and group/class English lessons in conversational English, preparation for the official IETLS test, and with university ESL students helping them to become ready to enter departments where instruction is 100% English. To date, I have about 5 years experience delivering private lessons both face to face and through internet platforms like italki.com.
I have many passions  . I love cooking different world cuisines like Chinese, Italian and Indian foods . I like outdoor sports like skateboarding and sea swimming . I love to talk about and share my ideas about books, great films and shows as well as philosophy and science. And I love everything about languages! –I always make my students bring their passions and interests into our lessons together .
I am self-taught and fluent in Turkish. I believe that grammar and vocabulary are important, but most of the time I like to give this as homework to study in my student’s own time. This way, in every lesson it’s maximum speaking – you will speak for 70% of our time. Every lesson will have a theme and topic from your life, your study, your career and your life passions. I use a variety of online tools to keep it fun and engaging, and find the ways that you learn best, and I have a whole store of materials to share with you for assessment, and practice in listening, reading, writing and speaking.
