About Your Teacher

Meryem Kennedy

My Story

I know what you are going through first hand. I remember how hard it was to learn English myself many years ago. I grew up in Turkey and learned English at school.

Now I live in the United States and have been an English teacher for over 25 years. I have had the privilege to help hundreds of students, just like you, to learn English.

No matter what your level is, I can help you improve your English further. I have the necessary education and training, including three degrees from two different universities. I have taught English at four high schools, two universities, and four colleges. I know I have the tools to help you with your difficulties and frustrations. I can help you take you to the next level of success.

My Second Language

Just like you, I learned English as a foreign language in Turkey, where I grew up. I understand your struggles, and I can help you overcome them. We can work together so that you will reach your goals with confidence and ease. Let me be your guide on your journey towards mastering English.

I Am Qualified to Teach You

I have three university degrees: English Teaching, Applied Linguistics and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Thanks to my extensive studies, I can teach anyone English. It is my passion, which is why I have made teaching English my life’s work. Join me on this quest, and I can make learning enjoyable and effortless.

 

I Have the Experience

I have been an English teacher for over 25 years. I have taught at high schools, universities, college, and language institutions, in addition to private tutoring. I have met students from all over the world. I understand your specific needs, and I can assist you in reaching your goals. Take this next step, and I will be here to help.
