Are you a Christian looking for a place to share your knowledge and help others advance their education? Then, this is for you!

Begin Anew is a faith-based education organization working to empower individuals to overcome obstacles caused by poverty by providing education, mentoring, and resources.

Begin Anew operates programs at four locations throughout Middle Tennessee (Woodbine, Downtown Nashville, Madison, and Franklin). Along with weekly Bible study and no-cost programming and care for our students’ children, we offer three education tracks in separate programs to men and to women:

• HSE (High School Equivalency/GED) 

• ELL (English Language Learners) accommodating three levels of instruction

• Computer and Job Skills Training 

 Under the guidance and direction of the Program Manager, the HSE Tutor will:

• Assist adult students in a classroom setting with preparation for the High School Equivalency (GED) test in one of five subjects: Math, Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Science. Instruction is one-on-one or in a small group. Tutors can request a subject they are most comfortable instructing in, and teaching materials with answer keys are provided by the Program Manager.

• Update each student’s weekly work log indicating subject areas studied and next steps

• Develop relationships with students

• Uphold the mission, vision, and statement of faith of Begin Anew

Previous teaching or tutoring experience is helpful, but not required. We are looking for a willingness to serve and a desire to help others achieve their goals.

Class days and times vary by location. All our locations offer evening classes, and the Franklin location also has daytime classes. We ask that volunteers commit to one 2-hour shift each week for an entire semester.

This position requires volunteers to complete an application and pass a background check. Training and resources will be provided to you by the Program Manager.
