New to Istanbul

Hello everyone,
My name is Ryan and I will be moving to Istanbul in a week to live with a family and teach English. I will be there for close to a year and am very nervous about the experience. I will be staying in Beykoz which I believe is on the Asian side. Could anyone tell me about that area? Any tips or advice on getting used to the city? I am hoping to meet friends and others who I could go out and have drinks with or play sports or something along those lines while I am there. Feel free to message me. Thanks.
