Hello, I'm Berra. I am Turkish and I live in Istanbul. I am a medical student. In my spare time, I like to watch TV series or movies and listen to music. Apart from that, I like to go to the cinema and theater. I can also play the piano. I am a friendly, caring, hard working and open-minded person. Getting to know new people and learning about their cultures and themselves make me who I am. I love listening to people's stories and learning lessons from their life.
Me as a Teacher
In my spare time, I was voluntarily giving speaking practice to people who are learning Turkish and English in another application. If I have students, I would be very glad to see their level of progress. Since I am a hardworking person in my daily life, I expect my students to make an effort to learn something and I do my best for them to learn. I offer the resources I have to my students and teach them in a way they can enjoy. Because if they learn in a way that they can't enjoy, that knowledge is settled in their short-term memory, not long-term, and they forget it after a certain period of time.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons will be based on Turkish speaking practice. I will encourage my students to speak Turkish in my lessons. I will correct their wrongs in a way that will not discourage them. We'll focus on their pronunciation, fluency and grammar to make them better. If my student wants, I will present them Turkish texts and we will also practice reading together. After I teach something to my student, I will encourage my student to study it again on his own until our next lesson and I'll ask my student questions about the topic we covered the previous week. Because I believe, practice makes perfect. As a result, me and my students will follow a path by both having fun and learning.

Teacher Berra is an excellent teacher! You will learn a lot in a short time. She is kind and patient. She doesn't rush you. She is very understanding and kind if you make a mistake; she never made me feel stupid when I made mistakes. In fact, she is just the opposite: very positive and very encouraging. She gives good, helpful feedback and a lot of pronunciation practice. I highly recommend Teacher Berra! You are guaranteed a good lesson with him!
