About Tem T.

I'm a professor of music with a Ph.D. degree and Turkish is my native language. I had been teaching in Turkey for over 20 years before I moved to the USA. Being a professor in Turkey with a Ph.D. degree requires high proficiency in Turkish. I write papers and articles both in Turkish and English. I study with students on their thesis. Especially I have worked with foreign students and know how to teach Turkish grammar as it will be your next language. As a musician myself, I have a very good pronunciation in both languages. As an expert on online teaching and as being an e-learning researcher since 1993, I study with online teaching tools that no other tutor use.

I have moved to Nashville, TN and teaching music at Tennessee State University. Besides teaching music in the States, I love Turkish and would love to share the beauties in the language and the culture of Anatolia. My advice would be at least weekly an hour of lessons but can be more related to your goals.

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

Im a native speaker and an interpreter/translator. I scored superior on the Defense language proficiency test (DLPT) when i was in the US ARMY. I was an interpreter for multiple missions and also taught Turkish to other soldiers and civilians. I have tutored Turkish for about 6 years so far and will teach the language to you the way you want to learn it. This could be street talk, travel, casual, etc.

I had not taken chemistry since high school, i'm 24 and pursuing a career in pharmacy. I know I'm smart but I knew nothing about chemistry and my friend recommended I get a tutor. Onur did not take it easy on me but he explained everything about chemistry and we practiced until I had it down. I made an A in my first chemistry class and i'm so glad I had onur to give me the right foundation in science as I start my journey in the science field.

Why TakeLessons?


Turkish Lessons

Private Turkish lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - accelerates your progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every student's chances of becoming a fluent user of the Turkish language. Private tutoring makes learning easy, it's more affordable than you might think, and it's the most impactful way to improve your skills for beginner or advanced learners.

Our Turkish tutors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. They can teach you the origins of the Turkish language, in addition to the vocabulary, the grammar, the punctuation, the consonants, the vowels, allophones, sentence structures, gender differences, and other technical aspects. Learn about and experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits of learning Turkish.

Turkish is classified as a Category 4 language (meaning it's one of the hardest languages to master for English speakers), and it takes up to 44 weeks, or 1200 hours, of deliberate practice to gain General Professional Fluency. A private tutor can help keep you focused, committed, and motivated, not to mention their ability to help you overcome any language hurdles you have trouble with.

Your tutor offers you expert language learning techniques and tips, and helps you develop good practice habits, so that you can maximize your learning experience, and achieve your goals faster. Learning Turkish is extremely useful in the United States, it helps with career prospects, educational development, business opportunities, and personal relationships.

Alternative Language Lesson Methods:
Turkish Apps and Books

For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out Turkish books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.

Turkey and Moldova Travel & Immersion

If you're considering study-abroad programs in Turkey, work relocation, international business opportunities, or general travel as a means to learning Turkish, immersing yourself and interacting with locals is a surefire way to accelerate your learning. Reading signs, menus, and local newspaper magazines while abroad could expose you to all kinds of spontaneous subjects. Conversing with or having to ask native speakers for directions or recommendations forces you to proactively apply your lessons. The downside is that many students, professionals, and travelers don't feel as confident in taking this approach. Not knowing the basics of the language could backfire on you, and lead to poor decision making. If you learn basic conversation and the most popular phrases for traveling, then you can combine this knowledge with immersion and return home a more fluent speaker.

Group Classes

Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local group Turkish classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.

At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
