Teaching

   I have been teaching professionally last 8 years both as a lab instructor and a tutor in variety of different classes. These varieties of laboratory I have been teaching has been a great experience to me and also convinced me to be able to teach these classes successfully.

   The time I had spent in Kocaeli University, I had learned how to teach basic problems and educated students in successful manner. I had learned a lot from my first job and experiences that had giving to me there. I prepared students laboratory documents and even learned a lot just preparing tools for them. I gave them problems to solve and guided them in a correct path to reach solution from shortcuts that makes them feel as if they had solved problem without my supervision. By doing that I provided them to increase confidence level and taught how to be independent learners.

   In my professional life, I have been teaching several power system simulation programs for utility engineers/researchers. The company that I have been working has been giving me chance to teach engineers in professional way. Giving professional training to power system engineers has been giving me chance to learn power system more deeply since  it has been interactive learning for me as well as we looked for answers to questions arose.

   The classes I want to teach, but not limited to, are listed below. I would like to add more classes as we go into future researches.
