İlke Köseoğlu

Brief info

I am Ilke Koseoglu, a passionate, qualified and 10 years experienced
English teacher who based in London.
If I need to summarise my academical background, I am a graduate of
Kadir Has University in American Language and Literature and hold the
pedagogical formation diploma from Marmara University. Furthermore, I
studied my Masters in Education Management at King`s College London
and completed my dissertation paper about the importance of certain
Management and Leadership styles in London schools.
My aim is to provide a quality 1:1  English language service to both adults
and children to improve their General, Academical and Business English
language skills to fulfil their objectives and dreams more efficiently.
My teaching style is fundamentally based on detecting the pupil`s
strengths and blind-spots and then developing the most suitable and
effective way to support them. Hence, to achieve this goal lessons are
carefully and deliberately tailored to meet each pupil`s needs, capacity
and learning styles. (audial, kinaesthetic, visual etc).
Furthermore, in all my lessons I use certain teaching approaches such as
motivating approach, cognitive approach and functional-national approach
to boost pupil`s confidence. I strongly believe that these are crucial and
the most helpful methods to support not only academical but also
personal progress in the English language while communicating others.
Below you can find the core services that I provide.
-Academic English (Exam preparation lessons)
I will help you develop skills in the 4 key test areas: Speaking: Using past
exam material to practice example speaking questions, I will assist you in
creating answers based on the information you provide with the correct
use of vocabulary, grammar, and idioms. Listening: I will use different
audio sources to practice and develop your listening skills by highlighting
the relevant information in the material that you listen to. Reading
(general and academic) Read aloud to me an article to practice your
pronunciation skills and then I will examine each piece of vocabulary,
every expression used and the grammar constructions to ensure you fully
understand the text and then I will talk you through practice the
comprehension questions. Writing (general and academic): This may
require some extra practice and homework….But you know what they say
“practice makes it perfect”! I will give you an example writing question
before the start of your lesson, you can write the essay or report in your
own time and send it to me through my email before or during our lesson.
During the lesson, I will go through your essay and Structural and spelling mistakes, give you a detailed feedback on how to improve and look at
other writing questions and improve your answer between us.
I offer tutoring for the following exams:
Proficiency Test
Other Cambridge Tests
Life in the UK test
-Business English
As the global economy recovers, English is being used more and more in
the marketplace to bolster business relationships and build new ones. I
can guide you through business vocabulary and prepare you for face-to-
face meetings, job interviews, formal telephone conversations, writing
emails and casual or formal business conversations with your co-workers.
Unlike using traditional materials, I will prepare tailor-made worksheets
regarding your specific need to meet your business requirements.
-General English
General English lessons will help you develop your English skills in the
following areas: general conversation, Theme-related vocabulary, and
phrase building, reading comprehension, listening, and speaking. I can
use handouts that cover all these areas, or I can professionally guide you
through English conversation using a set of questions where you answer,
and I listen carefully and correct your pronunciation errors in your answer.
I will provide any lesson material before the lesson starts and I will provide
feedback about your progress and performance after the lesson.
Proofreading and Editing
Because of my academic background, I am experienced and talented in
both the use of grammar and the appropriate use of vocabulary can
proofread, correct, and edit any academic documents that requires
checking. You can send your document (by email) in any format (MS
Word, Excel, PowerPoint or PDF) and I will use the ‘track changes‘ function
to highlight my corrections or changes. Your document will then be sent
back to you fully corrected and ready for use. I can usually check any
document (up to 2,000 words) within 24hrs of it being received but please
contact me for an estimate for longer documents.
