Hi, my name is Nazreen. I am a 46-year-old South African woman, who has been living in Istanbul since 2021. My background is in corporate travel and tourism, and I have spent 23 years in the industry working as a consultant, an Operations manager and a Business English coach. When the Covid pandemic killed the travel and tourism industry, I decided to focus my attention on my formal English teaching capabilities and have since become TEFL qualified. I am a native English speaker, who also speaks Afrikaans (an indigenous South African language similar to Dutch) and am currently also perfecting my Turkish. (Wish me luck!)
My interests include reading novels, especially those by Asian and Middle Eastern authors. I also really enjoy cooking dishes from different parts of the world. Thai and Indian cuisine are my absolute favorites! Listening to music is another of my favorite activities, and I enjoy genres and artists from all countries. I am a socially conscious person and love to engage in discussion about various social issues like diversity, equality, environmental and human issues.
I look forward to helping you improve your English speaking and listening skills in a relaxed and welcoming environment. I also aim to help you increase your confidence levels to ensure that your English interactions are meaningful and fulfilling, in both social and business settings. If what I am offering is exciting to you, please join me for a session.
