As a Grade 1 Tutor you work with students (typically ages 6-7) in the classroom and help them with reading, writing, math, etc, and help them keep up with the work assigned by the teacher. The teacher may ask you to work one on one with students who need extra help. You will be supported by a local intern.
This position is available throughout the Nicaraguan school-year which starts in February and ends in November. You should have an intermediate or better level of Spanish in order to understand the problems the kids have and assist them. Grade 1 Tutor/Classroom assistants work in the mornings, Monday to Friday from 7.30 am till noon. Friday's classes often end early.
There are no fees charged to volunteer with La Esperanza Granada. You will have to pay your own cost of living and your own transport. We ask each volunteer to make a $20 contribution to help with administration costs. You are not required to do fund raising, though of course it is welcomed.
