ESL Volunteer Instructor/Tutor
Available Internships for Fall and Spring 2023-2024
Overview: We are searching for teachers, substitute teachers, and one-on-one tutors for our adult ESL (English as a Second Language) program. Our Fall 2023 semester will run from September 11th – December 7th. It will be followed by our Spring semester with dates to be determined.
Classes are in-person every Tuesday and Thursday in the morning (9:30-11:00am) and evening (6:00-7:30pm). Volunteers must be available to teach both Tuesday and Thursday every week for the whole semester either in the mornings or in the evenings. Currently we are in need of interns/volunteers for the evening classes.
No previous teaching experience is required. Spanish language skills are helpful but not necessary. Volunteers are provided with some teaching materials and curriculum and go through a short screening process. We are looking for reliable, respectful, and patient individuals with the heart to support and grow our students’ English language skills with creativity and thoughtfulness. Great opportunity for future educators and those interested in language education!
