Recruiting Organization: A Faith That Does Justice

ESOL Teacher/ESOL Substitute Teacher (~6 hours per week)

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. Our vision is people intentionally living their faith in action.

Why teach English to 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 with immigrants, the ESOL program of A Faith That Does Justice creates an expanded community network for teachers as well as students.

Course Description

12 weeks long, two days of 2-hour sessions per week

Approximately 10 students grouped by proficiency levels (Beginner & Intermediate)

2 teachers and 2 tutors per class

Classes are virtual using WhatsApp and Zoom

Students are adults

Teachers are supported by ESOL Tutors and Student Relationship Managers (mentors)

Teacher Commitment and Expectations

Teach 1-3 sessions over a 12-month period

Adapt provided curriculum to the needs of students

Be present and prepared for all sessions

Be able to effectively use WhatsApp

Be able to effectively to host a Zoom meeting and to use Zoom controls such as chat, screen sharing, break out rooms, etc.

(Training may be available to refresh or teach some technical skills.)

Is this right for me?

Teachers do not need to be bilingual as classes are taught in English. While prior teaching experience is preferred, it is not required. We seek teachers 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 Teacher vs. Substitute?

A Full Time Teacher would be expected to teach class twice a week for a 12-week period. After being briefed on the lesson plan and expectations for the class, a Substitute Teacher would be expected to be able to step in for Full Time Teacher on short notice in cases where the Full Time Teacher is not able to make a class.
