This position is a great opportunity to improve or practice lesson-planning, project management, and teaching skills while you help others!

Every semester, each intern oversees one weekly ESL group tutoring session, which contains 8 trained volunteer tutors and 8 adult students working to improve their reading, writing and English-speaking skills. (All instruction is in English; students know at least a little English.) Our Interns enjoy a positive, supportive, diverse environment in which staff, volunteers, students, and other interns all work together to make our programs effective and enjoyable.
