One-to-one English teaching (adults)

Posted: February 06, 2024

We are looking for one-to-one English tutors to work with individual adults in their home, helping develop their English language skills. In some cases the role may involve developing language for work, or providing linguistic support for the driving test. It is very rewarding, offering an opportunity to get to know the whole family and establish a valuable connection.

We ask for a minimum commitment of six months. A weekly commitment of an hour’s teaching in the home is the norm.

An enhanced DBS check is necessary for this role. Further information can be found here.

We are looking for:

  • A recognised ESOL qualification.
  • Empathy and patience.
  • Interest in working with adults.
  • Willingness to provide brief quarterly progress reports to the Education Group.

In return, you’ll get an opportunity to:

  • Develop your English tuition skills.
  • Establish a valuable connection with a refugee family.
  • Make a real and significant difference to the lives of refugees.
  • Meet a wonderful and passionate group of volunteers from the Cambridge area.
