Pandemic Safe Volunteering: English B’Yachad English Tutoring
Our new program, English B’Yachad (English Together), seeks to add meaning and purpose to life during this tumultuous time.
The program offers one one one English language tutoring to Israeli young adults through an online platform..
We already have a long list of interested and motivated students waiting to be paired with a tutor.
Apply to volunteer for a 10-session commitment (approximately 2 to 2.5 hours a week).
Many of our students are post-army Ethiopian Israelis who are pursuing high-tech careers and are highly motivated to improve their English skills.
Not a teacher? Past tutoring or teaching experience is not required, but you must feel confident and comfortable taking the lead in discussions, and take the initiative to prepare for each tutoring session.
Students and tutors are interviewed to match individuals based on language abilities, student goals, tutoring experience and professional background.
We will provide training and start up resources but this program is not built upon a set curriculum as tutoring session content is customized to each student’s needs and goals.
For more information, see this new FAQ on the program.
Note: All sessions will be conducted on Zoom, unless the tutor and student decide together on a different format
