Help Fellow Parishioners Learn English

Are you interested in helping people learn to speak English? Would you like to help build relationships of trust and friendship here in the parish? St John Neumann’s English as a Second Language (ESL) program needs volunteer teachers, teacher assistants, administrative help, and conversation coordinators for the fall.

  • Our small ESL program thrived through Zoom during the pandemic shutdown, and we would like to expand it.
  • We will provide you with books, teacher resources and lesson plans, and any help you may need. NO foreign language or teaching experience is necessary or even desired.
  • You will connect with students based on your schedule and students’ availability.
  • If you feel uncertain about your ability to teach or use Zoom, we will help you.

We also need volunteers to help administer the larger program that we envision, especially in the areas of publicity, record keeping, and finances.

Lastly, we need volunteers to help facilitate regular Conversation Groups that will be part of our expanded program. This involves meeting with students, either over Zoom or in places that are convenient for all, on conversation topics that are announced in advance.
