Teaching Math and Science in Tanzania

  • Volunteer Opportunity posted by CADIP



Time Commitment

Full time (30+ hrs/wk)


Short-Term (few weeks/months)




This project is organised in partnership with a community based public school in Msongola. Performance of students seating for National examinations on Mathematics and Science subjects has not been good over the years in various community schools. One of the reasons is inadequate teaching among many other factors. This project is aiming to improve the students’ performance so that they can do their best on those subjects and shape their future.

Based on the four components of the program (Orientation, Community service, Cultural exchange, Development/global education), volunteers in this project will be assisting academic staff in improving students’ performance in Math and Science subjects (Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics). This will include teaching assistance in the specified subjects. Depending on the creativity of the volunteers, interest and availability of resources, it’s quite possible to have additional activities with the students like sports, games, recreational and extra curricular activities. In some cases during the program, including school holidays, classes might be organized at a local youth center.

Special requirements: English language, knowledge on the specified subjects and teaching skills are essential. Potential participants should be those who enjoy working with teenagers, are friendly, flexible, open minded and having the ability to work under less supervision and limited resources.

Orientation: Introduction and orientation seminar will take place in Dar es Salaam before moving to the project.

Duration of the project: Volunteers can be accepted for a minimum time of 4 weeks and a maximum of 3 months. The project starts on the first Thursday of the month and ends on Saturday of the last week.
