DESCRIPTION


The AAANY is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to tutor clients that have their Naturalization Test in the near future. Tutors will help prepare clients for their Naturalization Test by teaching them American history and by helping to improve their reading and writing. 


The Volunteer Citizenship Instructor must have a desire to work with immigrant communities and assist clients in learning civics and understanding the various components of the naturalization exam.

In this role, volunteer instructors will be able to create lesson plans, study groups, conversation lessons, and practice exams for our students. Furthermore, volunteer teachers will gain an understanding of the workings of a nonprofit organization, tutoring programs, and they will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the Arab American and immigrant community of Bay Ridge. This is an excellent opportunity for all individuals that want to gain experience in education and for those that want to help immigrants become American citizens!
