We are always looking for academic tutors to work with our students who are falling behing and also those who are ahead and bored with the material. One area for tutoring is English. English is a critical skill for our students to possess in order to have access to better quality paid employment as young adults. Providing assistance to our scholarship students with learning English can have a real impáct in their life and their ability to break out of the cycle of poverty. As an English tutor you’d be providing our students with the attention they need to improve their grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and general comfort with the English language. You would generally be working with small groups of students. We also look for tutors for math and literacy which are two other areas where students are falling behind!
