Hello everybody! I have been working for years abroad ,in Ireland, Norway, France and Turkey at the moment. I have been working as a language tutor for more than eight years. I can speak: English, Spanish, French and Italian fluently. And now learning Turkish. :). I am an English teacher in bilingual preschools. I am doing this in Istanbul as an English teacher ,plus giving private lessons to adults and children of all ages. I am interested in bilingualism in
children , having worked in bi/ trilingual schools. I am very relaxed and calm; if you need any help or have any question you may freely ask me. I
like learning new languages and I am aware it is not always so easy; but I think it should be taken as a "game", and something positive and light. Otherwise it gets more and more difficult :). I am interested in languages, early education, travels, philosophy, old literature and folklore.
All that concerns nature, alternative medicine, natural remedies, self-help, meditation and evolution of human beings.
My lessons will be based on a main book (downloadable) and other materials I will send by time. Also I will send weekly homework and/ or if you may be
interested in Italian movies I may give some advice. I prefer teaching beginners / intermediates. As for children, the lessons will be shorter in time
and based on conversation and small games or activities. I am not an "entertainment- making" type of person; I am introverted by nature, but I can make an enjoyable lesson for kids; making it flow and make them talk . I am calm and I think that's why mainly children get on well with me. :) Be it for your
or for your child, I will be waiting to meet you !
