One2One English Tutors
We are currently recruiting people with skills and experience in teaching English for scheduled sessions with Israeli middle school students once (or twice) a week between January - March 2023.
You can learn and share more about the added value of taking part in the program in the comments.
Alexa Schleien, teacher from Greensboro, NC: "I was able to get to know the four Israeli teens with whom I worked well, despite the fact that we exclusively met and conversed over Zoom. I enjoyed learning about their hobbies and preferences and exercising my creative muscle to craft lessons that were tailored specifically to their needs and interests....Through English lessons, I was able to see my students’ worlds expand at a time when, thanks to the pandemic, daily activities and connection to others appear to be shrinking. I am proud to have been able to contribute to and expand the lives of my students..."
Sigal and Omri Ben-Natan, parents of Hilla and Yael from Pardes-Hanna: "Our two daughters participated in the Partnership ONE2ONE learning activity....They recieved great confidence in speaking English talking to a person who does not speak Hebrew at all. As their parents we saw huge improvement in their level of English. The teachers are highly professional and created an amazing connection with our girls".
We would like to thank you for taking the time and introducing the English language to Avigail in such a wonderful way.
She became confident and learned how to express herself.
I am sure this learning experience will be useful for her in the coming future.
