About turkishtutor

I am a native speaker of English who teaches both English and Turkish, mostly online! Using Skype and a virtual ‘classroom’, this works well and is a very easy way of learning a language with no travel and no stress.

Originally an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher, I was working in the UK when I was recruited to teach at the British Council language school in Istanbul, Turkey. Over the next 10 years I also taught in high school, a Business English training company, and worked as a private tutor in General and Business English.

During this time I learned to speak Turkish fluently, and teaching colleagues began to ask me to help them. So I began teaching Turkish too! Since then I have developed a wide range of teaching materials for the Turkish language, explaining it in a way that is easy for English speakers to learn.

Now I teach both languages, although my English teaching is mostly for companies these days. As for Turkish, my students are businesspeople,  those who have holiday homes in Turkey, or  those who have married Turks.
