  • Description

    Description

    We have a small school in the city of Quetzaltenango. Our school teaches Spanish classes to foreign visitors, and also English classes to Guatemalan learners who have difficulty accessing these types of classes elsewhere. We also aim to provide our students and volunteer teachers with home-stays, activities and a great place to hang out, improve their language skills and soak up the atmosphere and culture of Guatemala.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Xela (as Quetzaltenango is known locally) is an amazing city to spend time in, gain a great knowledge of Guatemalan culture and brush up (or start!) your language skills (both Spanish and teaching English skills). You will learn about lesson planning, conversation with English learners and a variety of other teaching skills which can be invaluable for future teaching posts. The school has lots of students (both Guatemalan, and foreign visitors) to get to know, and there are activities all the time which teachers are welcome to participate in, so you will become part of the family.

    We are looking for tutors to teach English to adult learners. These classes are one-to- one (or occasionally 2 students) All the books needed for for the classes are provided, and we are based in a lovely central location. Tutoring experience is preferred, but not a necessity. We ask for a two month minimum stay so our students have consistency and teachers build up a rapport with the students. There are also opportunities to help with digital marketing, communication and some admin. Tutors need to be native English speakers (or completely fluent if it is not your first language).

  • Languages spoken

    English: Fluent

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Housing is provided with local famillies. Teachers will get a private room (sharing a bathroom), and it includes 3 meals a day with the family so it is also a great opportunity to practice your Spanish.

    There are a wealth of things to do in the local area, from hikes, to community visits, to just hanging out drinking delicious Guatemalan coffee in local cafes. There is a great social scene in town and both lakes and beaches are an easy weekend away.
