Come Teach English to Children and Make a Difference for a Lifetime!
We are helping meet the burgeoning need for children to learn English in Tunisia. Parents in this country realize that if they want their children to have access to the very best opportunities for higher education and employment in the 21st century, they need to learn English. We offer a preschool program for children ages 1½-5 and after-school clubs for children ages 3-14. We also offer intensive English summer camps.
We are looking for highly energetic English teachers with a passion for teaching children. Our programs begin with an English immersion preschool for children ages 18 months through 5 years. For children ages 3-14 we teach English through after-school clubs using fun, engaging activities such as sports, games, music, art, and drama. Behind every activity is a language acquisition curriculum based on best practices in immersion education.
Our English teachers are responsible for every aspect of the teaching process: lesson planning, preparation, implementation, and assessment. Although we have some off-the-shelf curriculum, we develop most of our curriculum ourselves. A full-time teaching load consists of 20 contact hours per week.
