I am from Guatemala, I am hard-working. I’m running by myself a small English academy and I would love some support teaching English to my students (we have regular students and students with a scholarship that I gave them. For most of our students this is the only chance they have to improve their lives, most of them don’t have the chance to get superior education, but learning English they will have more opportunities for that, working in a call center and paying their own university and bills.
The students are respectful, friendly, always eager to learn and they’re always excited about meeting new people from other countries, the students will help you with the classes and to make this experience very special. Teaching experience is not required but we will help to be a professional here with our advice. Always remember to prepare your classes, have fun and your main objective is to change lives in a small town sharing your knowledge and your time with the students. Let’s make a meaningful change in this community together. Remember: repetition is the mother of knowledge and being a teacher will change your life for ever, even if it’s just for a while in this project. So are you ready for this meaningful challenge?
