Our volunteers teach women and men who cannot attend formal English language classes due to caring for small children, work, transportation, or physical/psychological trauma. Volunteer teachers are matched with a student that is convenient to their location and availability to help ensure a good fit.
Teachers are not required to have prior teaching experience. They receive training before starting their work with students and ongoing training after they become teachers. IRWP provides teachers with lesson plans, books, workbooks, evaluation tools, and continuing support from IRWP staff.
In two one-hour sessions a week, teachers provide one-on-one instruction that includes speaking, reading, and writing English. Teachers also help students with life skills like making appointments and using public transportation.
