Teachers will prepare and administer lessons from reading materials and bring the English language to life from their own real world applications. We are currently seeking Lead Teachers for our Levels I, II, and III. Classes from Monday through Thursday (schedules AM or PM). Classes will begin May 26 and will end July 23. We are looking for dedicated volunteers who can commit to teach at least twice a week during the entire summer 2020 semester. Prior ESL teaching experience is a plus but not required. The Lead Teacher will be provided with curriculum guides, additional learning materials and training about how to use our online platform and resources. Individuals who are wanting to get hands on training in the world of ESL are highly encouraged to apply. This would also be an excellent opportunity for someone looking to teach English abroad. Thank you!
