Why teach English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)?

Use teaching to serve social justice and build your own teaching skills. Help adult learners in vulnerable populations develop the language skills needed to obtain employment and to live successfully in this country. Through its interfaith mission to foster meaningful relationships and build solidarity among Boston residents, the ESOL program of A Faith That Does Justice creates an expanded community network for students as well as teachers.

Course Description

  • 12 weeks long, two days of 2-hour sessions per week
  • Approximately 10 students grouped by proficiency levels (Beginner &Intermediate)
  • 2 t utors/2 t eachers per class
  • Held at St. Anthony Shrine, 100 Arch Street, Boston, MA

Tutor Commitment and Expectations

  • Tutor 1-3 classes over a 12 month period
  • Work with students 1 on 1 during class
  • Be present and prepared for all sessions

Is this right for me?

T utors do not need to be bilingual as classes are taught in English. While prior t utoring experience is preferred, it is not required. We seek t utors who are patient, engaging and dedicated to the mission of empowerment through education. AFTDJ is an interfaith program; members of all faiths and beliefs are welcome as both students and teachers.

Full Time T utor vs. Substitute Tutor ?

Full Time T utor would be expected to provide tutoring help twice a week for a 13 week period. Substitute would be expected to be up to speed on class activities and lesson plans and be able to step in for Full Time T utor on short notice in cases where the Full Time T utor is not able to make a class.

Mission Statement

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that raises consciousness about social issues affecting the most vulnerable among us and offers opportunities for people to walk in solidarity with those who our society marginalizes. We welcome people of all races, religions, cultures and sexual orientations. We are respectful of our differences and seek to learn from each other ways to overcome the social, political and economic barriers that may separate us.


What We Do:

A Faith That Does Justice has three components:

  • Monthly Workshops that bring English speaking and non-English speaking people together to realize that committed faith ought to be lived in action on behalf of justice for all.
  • Community Meetings, held four times each year, focus on social issues that affect the most vulnerable among us. These have included presentations on immigration, housing and homelessness, and racism.
  • Faith in Action, an initiative that emphasizes the works of mercy. We offer English as a Second Language to enable those in need of better language skills to function in the work place and society.

Who We Are:
We are a volunteer-run program, helping people from different faith traditions walk in solidarity with those less fortunate than themselves. Volunteering with A Faith that Does Justice allows you to put your faith into action and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.
