We are a club of parents of a public elementary school in Italy. Our aim is to improve the knowledge of English of the school children. The lessons will be offered free of charge so that even finacially disadvantaged children can take part. That's why we look for volunteers.
Having received the approval of the Director of studies, weíre now looking for FEMALE ENGLISH NATIVE SPEAKERS to volunteer to teach English to students aged 6-13.

We're looking for a person with a teacher degree or proven experience in teaching English.

Volunteering time will be from 16,30 to 18,00 from Monday to Friday from 25th September on during school time. You might be asked to give some lessons also to the members of the family that will host you.

The Exchange: In exchange for the work as an English teacher at the school, you will stay with the families of the students and receive meals. As accommodation you might get a single room or share the room with the daughter or son of the family hosting you.

One or two parents will also be present when you teach at school and will intervene in case children donít behave properly.

What to Expect at Home: Some parents have a higher level of English than others. If you do not speak Italian, please tell it in advance so then you will stay with a family that speaks some English. Also let us know whether you have special requirements in terms of diet so that we can organize it for you.

You might have a different host family every week. Some host families will probably show you around some of the nearby towns and cities. However, some families have more time and resources to take you out than others, because this isnít part of the exchange, itís an extra that only some families like to do in order to stay and talk with you in English.

You are free to go around by yourself in your free time using public services: in San Pietro in Casale there is a train station and you can reach Bologna or Ferrara in about 15 minutes, Venice or Florence in about 90 minutes and also go to the seaside for a daily excursion on a Saturday or Sunday.

Length of Stay: Minimum 1 week but we prefer longer periods from 2 weeks up to some months.

Contact/Selection: we would appreciate if you could send us your curriculum vitae, proof of graduation (if applicable), your picture (to or Skype detail for a brief interview.

About the Area: The school is located in a small village called Maccaretolo. The nearest city is San Pietro in Casale (also quite small, about 12.000 in habitants including the surrounding areas). San Pietro in Casale is ideally located between Bologna and Ferrara (about 25 km from each of the two cities)

Smoking/Drinking: Throughout your stay, you will only be allowed to drink alcohol in strict moderation. During your time at school and in families' houses, you are not allowed to smoke.

Pictures: in Italian public schools it is forbidden to take pictures of the children without special permit.
