Finding work as an ESL teacher in Istanbul

I am Canadian. Two days ago I worked in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia as an English teacher. According to students and colleagues, I am great. Unfortunately, Canada and Saudi Arabia are having little spats regarding visas. Mine was not renewed by the Saudi Government and I was given 24 hours to leave the country. In the space of 24 hours I had to leave everything behind - job, friends, students, and possessions. I can return home and apply again, but that will be a month or more without pay and that isn't good. So, I'm wondering if somebody could help me find a job in Istanbul at a good place with a decent salary. I would really appreciate some help, even if it's getting together for a drink somewhere. I'm all alone here and could use some networking and camaradrie of the Internations crowd.
