We are both English Language Teachers working in Istanbul for the last 8 years.
We established our private English language programme in 2012. Our programme is one of a kind.
Our aim is to have a high quality programme that is based in a relaxed social environment for our students to learn. We host young female volunteers as native English speakers to interact and converse to families, students and children in Istanbul.
The following information will answer the commonly asked questions, as well as an outline of the expectations and opportunities of our unique programme.
Our expectations of volunteers
To engage, interact and converse with students in our program.
We do not give you prescriptive material to follow during lessons. We have found it works best to interact naturally in your own way. So you need to be outgoing and interested in volunteering your time.
In return our students will show you around Istanbul to all the local places, try all the tasty turkish delicacies, while introducing you to the famous Turkish hospitality and culture.
What we will provide for you for volunteering your time?
As you are our volunteer/guest we will provide you with the following for the duration of your stay:
Transport*: to/from and during lessons
Internet: Basic speed internet for emails and general use.
Food: Basic everyday food
*Your own time/time off are at your own cost eg transport/food/and phone calls
Volunteers Working Hours
Working hours are dependent on how busy our programme is. There are few different programs we run right now.Family staying program,Daily meeting program, Teacher assistant program etc.Usually each lesson is 2-3 hours long.
Depending on what you are doing, eg. If your student is taking you on an excursion around Istanbul or to the movies for the afternoon you may spend up to 6 hours with them.
You will always have 2 days off a week.
We are pride ourselves in the easy going flexibility of our programme. This means we are very flexible if you want to take a long weekend, we can arrange this. However this means we are also flexible with our clients/students, so often the teaching schedule can change during the week.
