Are you fluent in both Mandarin and English, AND you want to work with seniors in your community? Do you want experience translating? Do you want to help out a group of vibrant seniors living at St. Patrick's Terrace affordable homes? Then we need YOU!

SAHA serves a very diverse demographic of seniors in the East Bay, a large percentage of which have limited English-speaking proficiency. Many of these residents are desperately seeking accessible English instruction so as to know how to communicate in cases of emergencies, converse with doctors and health care providers, and interact with others in everyday conversation. They are enthusiastic and greatly appreciate their ESL instructors.

If you're looking to make a difference in your community, this is a wonderful opportunity to gain teaching experience with students who are eager to learn.

St Patrick's Terrace is looking for a bilingual Mandarin/English ESL teacher who can teach English to residents. Please let us know if you're interested!
