Why tutor 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 tutors/2 teachers per class
  • Held virtually on Zoom

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?

Tutors do not need to be bilingual as classes are taught in English. While prior tutoring experience is preferred, it is not required. We seek tutors 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 Tutor vs. Substitute Tutor?

Full Time Tutor would be expected to provide tutoring twice a week for a 12 week period. Substitute Tutors would be expected to be up to speed on class activities and lesson plans and be able to step in for Full Time Tutor on short notice in cases where the Full Time Tutor is not able to make a class.

Mission Statement

A Faith That Does Justice is an interfaith organization that challenges people to experience God by living their faith intentionally in service to others. We do this by showing how unjust societal structures marginalize people and by acting to help those in need.


Inspiring faith in action.

What We Do:

A Faith That Does Justice has four components:

  • 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.
  • Community Meetings focus on social issues that affect the most vulnerable among us. These have included presentations on immigration, housing and homelessness, and racism.
  • 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.
  • Communications, email and social media posting on social justice and faith topics to educate our readers and to remind and inform readers about important social justice issues such as racism and immigration.

Who We Are:
We are a volunteer-run program, helping people from different faith traditions walk in solidarity with those less fortunate. 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.

Who We Seek:
As a fully volunteer organization, we rely on the talents, skills and dedication of volunteers to carry out our mission. We ask that volunteers commit at least 3 hours per week supporting our endeavors.
