About Me

I am an experienced educator and creative producer working for the past 10 years in the fields of music, contemporary art, media production, and broadcasting, both in the UK and abroad. I hold a PhD from the University of Aberdeen and have developed many educational projects as a lecturer and freelance.
I delivered theoretical and practical modules in recording and production techniques covering different media disciplines and industry practices in film, radio, electronic music and collaboration. I taught over 300 students with incredible talent. Some of them are now professional musicians, designers and engineers. My students praised my knowledge, passion for the subject and industry and creative flare.
I developed and delivered various modules encompassing audio practices for radio and podcasting, film and music theory, media writing, multimedia production, music production, performance, cultural research practice, sound studies, hybrid media, advanced design projects, dissertations, postgraduate supervision, and courses on composition for contemporary dance and theatre, as well as composing with sound.
Throughout my career, I practised interdisciplinary education. My teaching philosophy revolves around student-centred education, prioritising individual critical thinking and creative development. I believe in creating an inclusive learning environment where students feel empowered to actively engage in discussions and share their ideas.

Gamze
Experienced English Teacher (B.S.Ed.) / Gifted Education Mentor (M.S.Ed.)
Hi there! I am an English teacher with 10 years of experience. In addition to teaching at school, I give interactive and holistic English lessons to groups or individuals. My academic field is the education of gifted students. I also conduct out-of-school support activities with these students and provide counseling to parents. Before we start working together, I offer a free initial meeting to get to know you and understand your needs. I am based in Haarlem, the Netherlands but I also offer online classes all over the world. I believe that any kind of effective learning is an adventure that begins with a personal bond and ends with autonomy. Peter Drucker says, "Learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change, and the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn." In this age, every paradigm is changing very fast, so the teacher must help students find out how they learn best. Instead of continuing to deliberately learn something for years, let's find this "know-how" for English and ourselves together!
