Beacon of Hope Uganda is looking for a volunteer English teacher for our local primary school in Uganda. This is an enriching and satisfying experience where the volunteer get the opportunity to teach children who are eager to improve their conversational English skills.
Beacon of Hope Uganda operates primary schools in needy communities in Uganda. The Volunteer will work primarily as an instructor of English in our school. The Volunteer may also be asked to assist in other school activities such as sports and other extra-curricular projects
The placement consists of teaching the subject of English to school children for 2 to 4 lessons of a day, with each period running for 45 minutes.
The English volunteer teacher will be required to teach 5 days a week. Saturday and Sunday are days off for the volunteer to enjoy some free time and there are occasional public holidays during the school term. Depending on school size, class numbers vary from 15-60 in a class.
A local teacher will assist you in conducting classes during your first week to address any language barriers or concerns that may arise. You will be asked to run the class once the children become familiar with you. The Volunteer shouldn't be concerned about what to teach, as all schools in Uganda follow a curriculum that can be implicated in teaching.
However, if one is confident enough, you are more than welcome to apply your own teaching blueprint. If you have additional skills in extra-curricular activities such as: teaching games, music, painting, singing, dancing, yoga, martial arts etc, then you are most welcome to incorporate this into the teaching English program .
