Help adult students learn English grammar, pronunciation and conversational skills. Supervise ESL classroom activities for approximately 20 adult learners and 12-15 volunteer English Coaches. All learners are recently resettled refugees, almost all are Arabic speakers. Familiarity with English is varied. Some beginners, some adults have a little English. Some of our volunteers have teaching experience, others are not teachers but they helped with our pilot ESL program this fall.
Curriculum already set by our Director of Education. All workbooks, materials, and resources available on site. Your job is to coordinate work flow, match learners with volunteer English-speakers (when needed), make sure everyone has properly leveled materials. Adjust/enrich activities where needed. Engage specific learning groups in group mini-lessons as necessary. Help us make it fun!! One student-intern available to help you with administration. Prior experience with adult learners or immigrants helpful. TESOL or related certification highly desirable but not required. Conversational Arabic very helpful.
We are looking for someone to supervise Wednesday evenings. The program also runs Saturdays and Sundays from 4-6pm.
