We are currently seeking volunteer English tutors to provide face-to-face instruction to beginner-level refugee and new immigrant students in a small group or individual settings. Previous teaching and tutoring experience is required for this role.
The minimum commitment required is 3 months of tutoring for 2 hours a week on Saturday, 11:00-1:00 pm. If you are unable to meet this requirement, we kindly ask that you do not apply. Additionally, completion of a one-hour volunteer orientation and a 5-module volunteer training course is required to ensure that you are prepared to provide effective support to our learners.
Our English tutors also serve as mentors and are part of the NicerFL Refugee and New Immigrant Integration Support Teams. As a tutor/mentor, you will be expected to conduct a pre- and post-needs assessment and track monthly progress. Additionally, you will be required to connect with your students during the week to help them with current issues, build a warm relationship and find necessary resources.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of new immigrants in our communities.
