I have started teaching here in 2010, one of my friend recommended me when I showed my interest in Volunteering. Students who come here are very enthusiastic to learn and teaching enthusiasts can contribute more to the community in the lives of people looking to make better life. I would definitely recommend teaching here.

I started volunteering as an ESL teacher at CEUS in September 2006. I loved it enough to continue there for 4 semesters before my career sent me overseas to India. In addition to enthusiastic and appreciative students, working with the program administrator proved to be completely stress free and a positive experience. Most importantly, my experience at CEUS made me re-examine my career path; I left my lucrative consulting career to become an international economic development professional almost 2 years ago...and have never looked back.

I taught here for a year and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The staff and students are very friendly. There are three level-classes - 1, 2, and 3 - and a conversation class. There is a book for the levels. I originally came here to teach one 10-week-session class in preparation for getting my ESL Teaching Certificate and enjoyed it so much that I stayed for a year. I left only because I was seeking paid teaching work.

I've volunteered at CEUS for over 5 years! The students are willing and eager to learn English; and the Board is wonderful is helping he community come together. I'd still be teaching there today, but for the birth of my daughter. I'll definitely be back!

I was fortunate enough to have taught two sessions of Spanish literacy. I will always be thankful to CEUS for the opportunity. It is not something that can be easily expressed, all I can say is that I highly recommend that you volunteer. It will be an amazingly, unforgettable experience!

I loved volunteering here! They are a wonderful organization run by mostly volunteers all sincerely interested in their community. I taught ESL and found the students smart and eager. I found the Executive Board to be so admirable that after a year of teaching i became a board member myself. The only reason I'm not still working with them is that I've relocated...they're great!

Volunteering with CEUS was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get involved in ESL teaching. The students are very enthusiastic and you will meet a lot of great people. Your class will be self planned, which is great experience for those looking to teach ESL professionally. You can be creative and the students really enjoy that.

I started volunteering at CEUS during the summer of 2009 until February 2010. I was an ESL teacher. The students are amazing and so eager to learn. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. I would volunteer again if I could this year; it was a rewarding experience for me. I highly recommend that you volunteer at least one semester at CEUS, you will not regret it. This non-profit organization opened up so many opportunities for me, including teaching English abroad. Thanks CEUS.

I was searching for opportunities to volunteer in the community, and found CEUS in 2004... and there's been no looking back ever since! I have been teaching English to immigrants who want to learn or improve their language skills for work and day-to-day life. I love it! I hope that I'm helping some people improve their lives through my small effort. CEUS has given me this opportunity, and I'm so thankful to them. The language program on the one hand has structured classes and curriculum, but it also provides teachers like me a healthy degree of independence to try new things both in content as well as teaching techniques. The administrative staff is very supportive, and continuously striving for improvement.
