Do you have a desire to teach English but little or no practical teaching experience? Are you interested in learning to teach, or in building up your resume to find teaching work abroad later? Volunteers can meet students in-person from 2-3:15 Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as online on Mondays 7-8 pm on Zoom. You can sign up to meet with students once a week, or as many times as is convenient for you! We request a minimum of 5 hours volunteering, but you can join and leave the program at your convenience.

Meet students and help them practice their language skills! Frequently Asked Questions Q. How many hours do I need to volunteer? A.

HOFT Institute offers free ESL education to Ukrainian refugees in the Texas area, but unfortunately demand exceeds our ability to provide teacher-led classes to everyone. We are seeking volunteers willing to work online via Zoom with mid-intermediate to upper-intermediate/advanced level learners. A few hours of basic training and conversational materials will be provided. If you are interested in this opportunity, which starts September 11, and is planned to run in the evenings on Zoom from 7 to 8 pm, please contact the Academic Director Blair Bourassa, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
