Omicron Delta Kappa
May 2015

Omicron Delta Kappa was founded on Dec. 3, 1914 on the campus of Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va. The Society was founded by a group of 15 students and faculty who believed that leadership at the collegiate level should be recognized and encouraged across all phases of campus life. This general principle—that scholarship alone couldn’t predict success, and that other intrinsic qualities had value too—became known as the OΔK Idea.

Onur is a smart, sensitive and knowledgeable instructor. He met us where we were (two of us, complete beginners, took lessons together) and actively searched out resources to help us toward our language goals. As an ethnically Turkish man who has spent time living in Istanbul as well as Arizona, and even serving in the U.S. Military, he brings a true bi-cultural understanding to learning the language. That is invaluable if you really want a grasp of the way English and Turkish relate to each other and how to move from the one to the other.
Furthermore, we found him extremely flexible in working with us. And he is generous with his time. Honestly he really just cares about people progressing in their speaking and reading. What better thing could you want in a language teacher?

Took a couple lessons so far with Onur and wow i already see the improvements, thanks!

P.S. it does take some of my own time to get better such as doing the homework or assignments he gives me, but its never boring :)

Had Onur teaching me for a while. He is very understanding and has taught me more about the language than I was expecting. Others already notice a difference in the way I speak. I can now read fluently! Recommended!

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.
