The Volunteer Tutor Scheme encourages people to join us in supporting adult migrants and humanitarian entrants who complete our Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP), helping them develop their English skills and settle into life in Australia. The scheme works across Sydney’s South West and the Canberra region.
Our Volunteer Tutor Scheme is designed to help migrants and refugees who cannot attend our AMEP classes, or who need extra learning support. Our volunteer tutors find the role extremely rewarding, often calling it “the best volunteering job in Sydney”.
Under the AMEP, our volunteers offer one-to-one lessons for 1 hour each week in a student’s home or another meeting place. Lesson times are flexible and can be out of work hours, or on weekends, depending on your availability. The AMEP is a free* course of up to 510 hours of English lessons to help people learn basic English and skills to allow them to confidently take part in Australian society.
Anyone can support us as a tutor, even if your first language is not English, and teaching experience is not necessary. You will need:
