EiA, a program of the English-Speaking Union of the United States, matches non-native speakers with American volunteers for one-to-one conversation practice. English in Action is always looking for friendly new tutors. As an EiA Volunteer you will make a difference in your community, meet new people, share your culture and experiences, and learn about other cultures. English in Action may mean the beginning of a lifelong interest in a particular area of the world, or even a deeper understanding of one's own culture.
Qualifications: Volunteers need no formal training, just an interest in other languages and cultures and the willingness to befriend a newcomer.
Time commitment: 2 hours per week. Volunteer leadership positions available. Currently we are looking for tutors for Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.
How to Apply: If you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor in New York City, please contact English in Action at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment. We encourage all prospective tutors to reserve a place at one of our weekly orientation sessions.
