Hi everybody. I am Meltem. I am a native speaker I live in İstanbul. I enjoy meeting new people, learning about different cultures. I am happy to help who is interested in learning Turkish whether it is just for cultural interest or for work/ studies.
***Lessons that are not canceled or changed 24 hours in advance cannot be postponed to a different day and unfortunately, no refunds are made.***
Me as a Teacher
I have been teaching for 10 years. I would be pleased to help ones who are interested in Turkısh and also I enjoy working with students from all part of the world who have different stories and experiences. Talking about my teaching technique, as every student is different.
I encourage my students to speak as much as possible and get confident in doing so.I understand some of the difficulties a student may experience whilst learn a new language as I have experienced these difficulties too. Therefore, I will aim to make you feel confident about your language learning. I am very calm and patient.
My lessons & teaching style
I would like our classes to be placed where you feel comfortable to try to speak and safe to make mistakes because that is the best way to learn,I think one of the hardest, but most important things When you are learning a new language is to practice speaking so I like to give classes in conversational Turkısh If there are specific things you would improve in, for example, If you would like to correct your grammar I can help you.I will teach Turkısh the way you would use it naturally in a conversation.I focus on verbs and idioms If they are useful and common.I will make you confident at speaking Turkısh.

Meltem is an amazing Turkish teacher and I am truly grateful to have found her and be taking lessons from her. Meltem’s lessons are personalized, whatever you need help with, Meltem will help you. You can also ask her any questions and she will happily respond. She has a very positive approach to her lessons and remains calm and kind throughout the whole lesson. She understands that language can be challenging and never reprimands mistakes. Meltem’s lessons are practical. She teaches lots of grammar and does a lot of speaking activities, instead of just having you memorize word lists. I like how Meltem gives out homework. This homework helps me practice what I learned in the lesson and keeps me surrounded by Turkish in between lessons. The homework helps solidify the lesson material and makes me feel more confident in my abilities. I am excited to return to my Turkish classes at uni because I am more confident in my skills. Teşekkür ederim Meltem!

I have weekly Turkish conversation lessons with Meltem. The lessons are always fun, informative and motivating and the topics she picks for discussion are interesting and stretching; focussing on different lexical areas each week. She is quick to correct my mistakes and offers easy explanations. But most of all, her charming manner and easy smile create an engaging atmosphere in the virtual classroom, meaning the lessons are a highlight of the week and always somthing to look forward to.

Meltem is a great teacher! She makes every lesson experience based. I have been with her for several months and during the short time she was able to make me speak. She is also encourages, correct the mistakes super professionally and never force or criticise. The topics that we discuss is relevant to current environment and world, it is not only challenging to talk in your native language but she pushes to speak in new language. This shows that she wants her students to go for extra mile as well discuss with them the things that matter to all of us. You are the best!
