We are a new non-profit (NGO) that provides free educational services to children and their families in city of San Miguel de Allende, México, operating out of an office located in the Independencia Avenue area. EdCaminos works with primary school-aged children using an after (or before)-school tutoring model, and also provides additional classes (like English) to children and adults of all ages. Our work is important because it provides poor children with much-needed extra help with their education - free of charge - while also providing their parents with an opportunity to obtain skills like English. Our work is organized around semesters within the school year, and we also offer summer sessions.
We are looking for tutors who can work with young people one-on-one, or in very small groups, in a structured educational setting. To be a tutor you must have very good Spanish language skills. Experience with tutoring and/or teaching is desirable, but not required. We ask that tutors commit to a period of at least one month. However, the work schedule is very flexible, since tutoring sessions generally do not last longer than 1-2 hours per student. Also, our Director works closely with all tutors to make sure they receive the support they need.
