italki teacher since Feb 13, 2022
Hey everyone, My name is Cem. I studied Spanish Philology. I am a certified English (CELTA), Spanish (ELE), and Turkish (TTAFL) teacher. I have been teaching languages since 2012 . I currently live in Istanbul, Turkey.
I have the Cambridge C2 Certificate in English, C1 in Spanish and Turkish is my native language. I have worked at prestigious universities in Colombia as an English tutor and I have been giving online language classes since the pandemic started.
Me as a Teacher
I consider myself as an efficient teacher as I adapt to the learning needs of my students. I have all the necessary materials to teach; books, videos, games, applications, texts. In my studio, I have all the professional audio and video equipment to make my classes more coherent and efficient.
My lessons & teaching style
As I previously mentioned, I always adapt to the needs of my students. If you want to focus on just passing an exam, we will make our strategies together to achieve that goal. If you want to study for an international language test, we will focus on hacking the test and essential tips to get a better grade.
And I know that learning a language is not just about passing an exam, that's why we can have conversational classes, during which we just choose an interesting topic and talk about it during class and I will not interrupt you, so you can improve your fluency and at the end of the class I will show you some sentences which you said and we will work on getting rid of some common mistakes.
