Teach Children in a School in New Zealand

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

This close interaction and undivided attention from you helps to raise their standards of education. This is a very worthwhile project that will give you lots of personal satisfaction.

You'll work one-to-one and in small groups with the children some of the time, to really give them the attention they need. Class sizes vary between 20 and 30 children in each class and you will be teaching children aged between 4 and 17. You'll work as an assistant teacher, helping small groups of children in a variety of subjects. You may also be asked to work one-to-one with some of the children who particularly need help.

Many come from different backgrounds and war-torn countries like Somalia, Ethiopia, Tonga and Samoa. Teach at a school in Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand, at a school where the children are from underprivileged countries and communities.

The lessons you'll teach generally last for 40 minutes and the school day runs from around 8:55 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The length of your working day will be around 4 to 5 hours of teaching and preparing for your lessons.

As an assistant teacher at the school you will be involved in a number of different subjects, such as:
* History
* Geography
* Art
* Math
* Drama
* Music
* Sports
* English
... and possibly other academic subjects

Highlights

ACCOMMODATION
Food is not provided on this project, but Auckland has restaurants to suit all tastes - the most popular cuisine is New Zealand lamb which can be ordered at many restaurants around the city and is well worth it. For meals in local restaurants, a trip to Auckland's inner city centre is well worth the effort - it bustles with activity and offers a range of choices of restaurants.

Accommodation is very central and close to the main train station and shopping district. Buses are also only a few minutes away to take you to parts of Auckland and New Zealand or to the many other ‘things to do’!

Entertainment at your accommodation includes cheap internet access, TV and free pool table. You are literally a stroll from the Sky Tower, harbor and waterfront.

You'll live in a centrally located hostel that is friendly and relaxing, making it ideal for long-term stays. You will be sharing a room with other volunteers. There is a communal kitchen and storage area for cooking meals and plenty of space to relax.

Qualifications

Minimum age 18, no qualifications necessary. If you're teaching English, you must be fluent in English.

Start Dates: All year round, subject to school term dates and holidays - you choose your start and finish dates!
