The English in Action (EiA) program matches non-native speakers with native English-speaking volunteers for one-to-one English conversation practice. EiA is always looking for friendly new tutors.

As an EiA Volunteer you will make a difference in your community, meet new people, share your culture and experiences and learn about other cultures.

Volunteers need no formal teaching background or training, just an interest in other cultures and the willingness to help a newcomer. We provide training and materials. Time commitment: minimum 2 hours per week. Volunteer leadership positions available.

Both in-person and online conversation opportunities are available. Ability to use Zoom is required for online conversations.

English in Action may mean the beginning of a lifelong interest in a particular area of the world, or even a deeper understanding of one's own culture.

English in Action (EiA), in connection with the Andrew Romay New Immigrant Center (ARNIC), is a program of the English-Speaking Union of the United States.
