As a Primary School English Teacher you teach English to primary school students in grades 4, 5 and 6. You will work in a team and teach in two schools per week, alternating each day. You will also have an ayudante (local intern) with you who will help you with the students and teaching.
English team volunteers work Monday through Thursday and do lesson planning on Friday mornings. Depending on which schools you would be working from 12.30 - 4pm or 1 - 4.30 pm. This position is available from February to November and requires an advanced or better level of English as well as a basic or better level of Spanish.
We require a minimum time commitment of 6 weeks, although longer term volunteers are always welcome. We provide inexpensive volunteer housing or can arrange for homestays if you prefer.
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.
You can also choose to alternate this work by also working as a computer assistant, by assisting the computer teachers in the different schools. These lessons are in the morning.
