Educate children from disadvantage families to brighten their futures while also experiencing vibrant African country!
The ability to read and write well in English is very important in Tanzania. Often, people's careers take a steep climb up as a result of this ability. Lately, due to commerce and tourism, the importance of English has grown even more making it absolutely necessary to learn the language. Not all Tanzanians are fluent in English and not all schools are equipped with well trained and experienced English teachers. Often schools in deprived regions lack trained manpower. As a result of this, the students aren't well groomed and don't develop required English skills to succeed later.
Join our Teaching English volunteer project now and give hope to students attending schools in poorer region. You will find the students extremely eager to learn from an international volunteer and generally well behaved.
You will teach English to nursery, primary and secondary school kids between the age group of 6-16.
No specific qualification needed to volunteer in Teaching English project. We do however expect our volunteers to be fluent English speakers (not necessarily native English speakers). Volunteers should also be flexible and patient. No previous teaching experience desire.
You will work as an English teacher. You can start teaching straight away if you are confident of it, or you can assist the local teacher at first and start on your own when you have gained the necessary confidence. You will mostly follow the official curriculum; however, you can bring in your teaching methods also. You will be for instance encouraged to hold debates and discussions as this can increase the student's ability to comprehend English better, encourage participate and make the class fun.
The children are aged between 5-10 years old in the primary school, and between 11 and 16 years old for junior secondary. You can also participate or organize extra-curricular activities like games and plays and play the school's administration.
The teaching English in Tanzania project is located in the northern towns of Arusha, Moshi and Boma. Arush is often referred to as a gateway to the northern safari circuit. Despite being located very close to the equator, the town lies at an altitude of 14 hundred meters and enjoys cooler temperature year round. The town has superb views of Mount Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Coffee plantations and maize and wheat fields dominate the surrounding countryside. Arusha National Park, which is full of wildlife, is the nearest safari option.
Moshi is a smaller town and is located about 45 miles from Arusha. It also enjoys a cooler weather but is much wetter. There are many things to see and do in Moshi, including visiting lively markets, religious institutions, many different safari options, climbing Kilimanjaro and cultural trips to Maasai villages.
