As a volunteer teacher, you will provide one-on-one tutoring to children who need individualized attention.You will be supporting the development of their reading skills, especially with children who may be experiencing difficulty in grasping a concept. The children assigned to you will have been selected by their teachers as candidates requiring extra tuition support. The sessions aim to develop reading, vocabulary, language, and literacy.Confidence levels, social skills,listening and comprehension skills, with better academic outcomes in later years, are all benefits to be expected.

As a volunteer teacher, you will assist by providing individualized attention to astruggling student.

You may also get involved in teaching various sporting codes, assisting the choir, running art projects, etc. The volunteer will also be assisting with basic childcare for younger children. Your aim is not to take over the functions of the teacher but to work alongside the teacher. As a volunteer teacher, you can support teachers with your skills and knowledge by giving them ideas on lesson planning, course materials, and so forth. You may wish to teach the children on a certain subject by using songs, demonstrations, art projects or practical examples like real fruit.

You may be required to assist the teacher with various activities in class.

Description

Early mornings bring to Tsheg, vibrant voices, as dust dances around people`s feet as they disembark from their taxis. The painted African sky allows the sun`s rays to tickle my shoulders. I hear the uncontained laughter of children. Today the TCM family, (staff, volunteers, missionaries, and children), has an opportunity to share love, bringing hope and joy. I know this is going to be another fabulous day!

Tshega (TCM), established in 2004, transforms the surrounding villages, by offering quality education, skills development, and outreach programs. The surrounding villages have a staggering unemployment rate of 95 %. Women and Children are left alone for months when fathers and husbands migrate to look for work. Some never return, burdening the unemployed mother to support and feed her children. In these villages, nestled in the mountains of Bolubedu in South Africa, YOU can make a difference as a volunteer!
