italki teacher since Apr 19, 2022
Hello there! My name is Merve. I currently live in İstanbul Turkey and I’m a native Turkish speaker. I also speak English fluently. At the moment I myself am learning Spanish. I’m interested in discovering new cultures and meeting new people, also interested in topics such as movies, music, arts, and politics.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, I am patient, attentive, and supportive. My main goal is to make you feel confident and comfortable while speaking Turkish.
Even though Turkish is my mother tongue, I was always interested in its linguistic aspects. So I can tell that I’m really passionate about languages and hopefully I’ll be able to transfer that passion to you.
Additionally, if you are curious about Turkish culture I can also provide my perspective and even the idioms, sayings, and insides from a local.
My lessons & teaching style
As a community tutor, I aim to be your conversation partner. You can think of me as a friend whom you can chat with about any subject. One way we can do this is to discuss a topic of your choice. Another way would be to send you an article or a video beforehand so that could guide our talk. This way our conversations are not repetitive and your vocabulary is always expanding.
