Sacramento ESL ProgramC/O Fruit Ridge Community Collaborative4625 44th Street, Room 12Sacramento, CA 95820


We are looking for ESL teacher(s) who have a credential to teach ESL one to four evenings per week to refugees and immigrants. It is a multi-level class and we use teacher aides in every class to help the main teacher. This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for a retired English or ESL teacher.

SESL offers regular ESL classes Monday through Wednesday and a special class of pronunciation and conversation on Thursdays. We are looking for a teacher who would be available (preferably) Monday and Tuesday 6:30 to 9:00 and on Wednesday from 7:30 to 9:00.

We are very interested in helping students who are working on their TESOL degrees or getting credential training and would like to help them get experience teaching our students who have such great need to acquire so much knowledge in order to be successful in this country.

Experience teaching ESL would be helpful but not absolutely necessary as we will provide as much training as necessary. Teacher training and help with curriculum are both available. We would prefer someone who can take the Monday through Wednesday classes. The ESL and pronunciation classes could be rearranged to fit people's availability and schedules.

We use the Oxford Picture Dictionary, Step Forward, and Focus on Grammar as our principal texts, all of which are available to our students in the classroom.

Fall classes will begin on September 11 and continue throughout the year (June 2018). They go from 6:30 - 9:00 pm and we take regular holidays. We cannot offer a salary but would like to give volunteers a monthly stipend.

If you are interested in this opportunity to serve, please email seslprogram@yahoo.com for more information and you will be directed to our Volunteer Coordinator.
