Merhaba
I am a native Turkish speaker and I can teach you in a way that you will get the hang of it very quickly.
You will learn about sound harmony, connectors, morphemes, rules about consonants, and you will get a lot of practice in speaking. I will teach you the 5 tenses, and sentence structure as well as useful phrases and a lot more.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Ahmet is a good teacher who explains the materials very well. He explains it easily and if you need the Russian translations, it wouldn't be a problem for Ahmet.
My lessons are interesting because I practice Grammar, Speaking, Listening and Writing skills. Since the lessons are always different, I do not have the time to get bored or distracted. Our lessons go so fast that I wonder "Ноw come!? Did I waste my time in vain?"
My skills get better with each lesson, and I dont even notice how. But I know that nothing is better than having lessons with a native speaker. I had a lot of lessons with Ukrainian teachers, but nobody was able to give me as much pleasure while learning English as Ahmet.
You don`t need to worry about your level, because even if you are a beginner, Ahmet will be able to help you since he has a good command of Russian language to explain materials.

Hi, there! My name is Rita S., I am a native speaker of Portuguese originally from Brazil. I have more than 15 years of experience teaching Portuguese language and culture to professional adults on some of the leading international institutions in the D.C. area, from beginner through advanced proficiency levels.

I am happy to tailor my lessons to meet my students' needs and style. I have a lot of experience as online instructor, using Skype, Webex, and FaceTime to deliver lessons to remote students who are unable to attend classes in person.

I am a great advocate of good pronunciation, no matter what is your native language. And if you are a Spanish speaker, I can help you to overcome the specific challenges that Spanish speakers face when learning Portuguese.

Culture provides the environment in which languages develop, so culture is an essential part of my lessons, including Brazilian music and history.

Let’s talk and see how I can help you to learn Portuguese in a fun, ...

Conversation is in my opinion the most efficient method for remembering words long term and also the best method to learn grammar without stress. I am an Italian native speaker and through my teaching style I intend to boost your motivation to continue learning.

About Simona

Practice makes perfect! My teaching style is based on language living rather than language studying, and while I will provide you with all of the tools to apply the correct grammar rules I encourage you to make mistakes, and learn naturally by being exposed to the language. I am 100% Italian native

Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

We all know European languages have that romantic touch that we all need to hear or understand from time to time. Eminescu's language should be discovered by everybody. I'm more than willing to explain it to someone passionated about Latin languages.

About Alexandra

I recently moved from Romania and I would love to spread my native Romanian knowledge with someone passionated about this Latin language. I studied Romanian and English grammar and literature at Petru Maior University (BA), in Targu-Mures, Romania, 2010-2013.

Alexandra did a terrific job in preparing me to get around Romania. I travel there for work and she was excellent in helping me learn key phrases and sentence structure for someone visiting and getting around that country.
Adel H.
Alexandra is dope teacher! I wanted to start learning phrases and speaking basics, and have conversations for when I visit romania. She is generous with her time, excellent English to romanian communication/knowledge and she is charming.

So it's been a pleasure!
