Letter to the family

I’m İlayda. I was born and raised in Turkey, Istanbul. I come from an understanding and liberal family. I was raised to be independent and confident enough to take care of myself. I was always encouraged to make my own choices by my family. I consider myself to be so lucky to have such a family that didnt have any strict gender or family roles.

I am into sports and I also have various hobbies. I used to be a swimmer, I also played lacrosse and did kendo for some time. Since 2016, I have been doing fitness. I also did yoga for a year between 2016-2017. I have been doing boxing since 2019 September as well. Besides, I can play the piano and I am definitely talented at cooking. I used to sell desserts to cafes and restaurants.

I always loved English and reading books. That’s why I studied American Culture and Literature in 2016. After completing 2 school terms, I decided to study English Language Teaching and I transferred my studies to another university. Since then, I have been studying ELT. I have taken phonetics, linguistics, pragmatics, pedagogy classes. I was an Erasmus+ student in Croatia,Zadar from Feb 2020 to Aug 2020. I took Croatian classes but unfortunately I couldnt learn so well. Other than that, I have been learning German since July 2018. I love the German culture and the languge and I plan to do my master’s degree in Germany.

I have been teaching kids since 2019. I have officially started to work as an English Teacher at a very well-known company called Just English in Istanbul. I had and still have so many young learners. I also tutor the company owner’s son. I always speak English with my students. I support the communicative approach in teaching. I am speacially trained to teach British and American accents.

Children love me. I have a natural connection with kids. I am energetic and creative. I am very active and sociable.

Experience

I LOVE TEACHING. That’s my true passion and that’s the reason why I became an English Teacher. I use contemporary techniques and I value communication more than grammar activities. Ive taken phonetic classes and I speak with a very good American accent. I can teach the differences between American and British accents.
