Join Couchsurfing to see Steven’s full profile.
I am 29 years old, American, living in Istanbul. I have been teaching English for 4 years and have taught abroad in Vietnam, Egypt and Turkey. My interests revolve around music (I play guitar, piano), poetry and course traveling and currently running an ESL business online. So working while traveling is my thing and I enjoy the freedom and flexiblity it brings.
I have taught mostly ESL at primary schools and university and I also teach Spanish. I am interested in topics like philosophy, psycho-analysis and mental healthy and I enjoy connecting with people on a deep level.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have travel plans for the near future, including Vancouver, Patagonia, Peru, Berlin, Qatar, New Zealand (to name a few),.. and would like to use this platform as an opportunity to network with new people and form new connections and as an alternative to crowded hostels or costly hotels. I would like to be able to learn about the city I am visiting from the person who is hosting me. I have ahd this account for quite some time but never actually used it until now and want to put out good and clear intentions.
