Jacari tutors are educational mentors, providing one hour a week of free home tuition for local children age 6 -16 who don't speak English as a first language. Each tutor will be matched individually to a pupil and will travel to their house to deliver a fun English lesson, and help with homework. No teaching experience is required - we give you training and resources! 

To succeed as a Jacari tutor you must have an interest in working with children or young people, patience, enthusiasm, and be able to commit to delivering around 16 hours of teaching across the academic year 2017-18. 

Lesson dates and times are worked out between you and your Jacari family - so this is a very flexible volunteering opportunity, but you should try to commit to going at the same time each week (during term times - commitment not expected during University holidays).

About Jacari

Our vision is equality of opportunity and aspiration for children and young people who do not speak English as their first language and are at risk of failing to achieve their academic potential.
