English Conversation Tutor

English in Action Conversations matches English language learners with native speakers of English for one-to-one conversation practice. We are always looking for friendly new tutors.

As a volunteer tutor, you will make a difference in your community, meet new people, share your experiences, and learn about other cultures. English in Action Conversations may mean the beginning of a lifelong interest in a particular area of the world, or even a deeper understanding of your own culture. Many of our tutors have been volunteering for more than 10 years.

UPDATE: For Fall 2020, all programming for English in Action will be done online. This includes one on one conversations with a student, group discussions and trainings. English in Action is still dedicated to holding face to face conversations and all the benefits this brings but at a time in the future when it is safe to do so. Please note that volunteer tutors are placed at specific locations and times to fit their schedules. A return to face to face sessions will see you joining a session once a week for two hours to hold student conversations and so requires a certain amount of commitment.

Qualifications

  • 18 years old or older
  • Interested in making a difference in the community
  • Interested in helping English language learners improve their fluency and cultural understanding
  • No formal training is required. We offer tutor training workshops to help you learn how to best tutor international students.

2 hours per week. We have conversation sessions Mondays through Saturdays in the mornings, afternoons and evenings.
