  • Description

    Description

    My name is Eugenia. I am an English language teacher and entrepreneur. I'm in the process of developing a private language center with two more teachers. The school is in Huixcolotla, Puebla. We've been running this language center for 6 years. The center offers English language courses for kids, teenagers, and adults. We have small groups, most of our students come from public schools from Huixcolotla. It is very important for us to keep the school running since it is the only opportunity to learn English many students have, we are the only language school in town. We would like to give our students the opportunity to learn about other cultures and practice English with native speakers or non-native speakers of English who have a high intermediate-advanced level.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is an option for people who wish to live and experience real Mexico. We are located in a small city, Tlaxcala, in which you would be able to know traditions, celebrations and try real Mexican food. We are surrounded by rural towns, in which you can see convents, churches, natural resources, and even ruins of pyramids. We are also close to the city of Puebla (one hour), 90 minutes far from Huixcolotla, and two hours far from Mexico City. All of them beautiful and interesting to see. Volunteering with us will give you the opportunity to know rural, semi-rural and urban areas in central Mexico.
    My husband and I have been abroad ourselves and enjoy meeting people. We love visiting places and will happily take you around when time permits. You will also have the opportunity to learn or practice Spanish with us and our students.

    Due to the pandemic, most of our clases are now online. This means that we have students from different places around Puebla, Mexico, and Tlaxcala states. I am currently living and working from home in Tlaxcala.
    At the moment I'm looking for someone who would like to babysit my two-year-old baby and spend some time with my online students so that they can practice their English.
    PREFERABLY ESL/EFL TEACHERS or travelers with experience in English teaching.

    What else ...

    During working days, volunteers can visit nearby towns in the morning and come back to help in the afternoon-evening. When having two or three days off volunteers would be able to visit cities like Mexico, Puebla, Oaxaca or Veracruz. There is lots of cheap public transport available, then it is very easy to move around.
