English Tutor with many years of teaching experience, specialised in conversation practice.
italki teacher since Apr 11, 2019
My name is Mehdi, and I'm living in Istanbul, Turkey.
I hold an M.Sc. in AI (Artificial Intelligent) and I love discussing technology.
I also have lots of experience in software engineering and computer programming in different languages.
Furthermore, I have been teaching English remotely and face-to-face (physical language school) and I enjoy connecting with people who want to learn a new language. Watching documentaries and movies is how I spend my free time. I love learning about new cultures! Hope I can learn about yours too.
Me as a Teacher
A dedicated and hard-working teacher with over 9 years of experience and a genuine enthusiasm to help students achieve their aims. I have been teaching English language since 2011 in a couple of institutes as a teacher or private tutor, online as well as offline. I have helped students of all ages, ranging from 8 to 80 years old.
Many students have trusted me with dozens of classes, and they have made a lot of progress.
I have had students who learned English or Persian with me one lesson per day, and they have been able to communicate effectively after a few months.
I will use Images, Videos, Articles etc. throughout our lessons, per request.
My lessons & teaching style
My main teaching method is Communicative Language Teaching (or CLT in short) which means my focus would be to enable the learner to communicate effectively and appropriately by practicing and talking about different subjects, which allows the student to become more confident in their ability to understand and grasp the minute details that will help them excel in learning English or Persian to the levels they seek to accomplish.
You will benefit from my lessons if you are:
- Someone who has been learning for a long time and is stuck.
- Parent of a child who speaks no or very little English.
- Someone who has an interview coming up.
- Someone who has to pass IELTS.

I always learn so much from my lessons with Mehdi, both in terms of Persian and in all the different interesting topics we discuss. He is a very patient but encouraging teacher and we always have very interesting and fascinating conversations about different subjects. He helps me express ideas about complex things in Persian and also explains things perfectly. Thank you Mehdi :)
