I have a BA in English Language and Literature. The degree was for four years and it covered all aspect of the language.
I have an MA in Education. The focus was on gaining practical skills in teaching for all different levels and all possible teaching scenarios.
I have an MPA in public policy and public administration. I mainly focused on education and migration policies.
I started my career as a teacher at kindergarten and primary schools in Syria. Then, slowly I moved to secondary and high school level. At the same time, I was working as a private tutor at language centres and with private students.
I also worked in Georgia as a teacher of English from primary to high school level. At the same time, I was working as a teacher trainer there.
I moved then to Turkey to work at a private university as a teacher of academic English at the preparatory school and a lecturer of psychology at the freshman department.
The last teaching job I had was at a refugee access program at a private university in budaest, Hungary.
The cost is for one session of one student. In case there is a group of students, the cost is definitely varies.
