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 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 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.
