Teaching English to Children & Adults

Rio de Janeiro- RJ, Brazil show on map

Agency | JIVE

We need motivated and confident individuals that want to teach Basic and Intermediate English classes.

Many communities have an interest in learning English and are very excited about the opportunity to study with International teachers.

  • Students range from 5 to 50 years old

  • No previous teaching experience required

  • We provide you with teaching material and books

Things to keep in mind:

  • It is important to have patience and come with materials and/or lessons prepared beforehand. When you come prepared it shows your seriousness and sincere interest in helping them further their education and abilities.
  • We encourage you to keep a journal of what you accomplished with your class and with feedback about students' strengths and weaknesses. This way the next volunteer to come after you can continue where you left off.
  • Generally, volunteers will be responsible for two classes: one in the morning and another in the afternoon.
  • If you need any ideas please feel free to get in touch with us. We are here for you!
