Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement

  • 46 people are interested

Jacob A. Riis Settlement is looking for volunteers to support students enrolled in our adult English classes for immigrants through 1:1 tutoring.

By providing extra language practice outside of their ESOL classes, you will help students improve their English skills for practical use such as in social, educational, or professional settings. Volunteers will be matched with an individual student based on mutual availability. Tutor resources and study materials will be provided. Tutoring begins during the last week of April

Bilingual volunteers (Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, etc.), volunteers with teaching or tutoring experience, and volunteers with TESOL/TEFL certifications are highly preferred!

Due to COVID-19 this is a remote volunteering opportunity. A brief interview and orientation with the Volunteer Coordinator will give more details. If interested, please reach out to Olivia Grondy at volunteerriis@gmail.com!
