Language Tutor (Italian or Spanish)

Location: Skills and Training

Gender: Female

We would like to offer beginners level tutoring in either Spanish or Italian language to the ladies at the Marylebone Project. As a Volunteer Language Tutor, you would support our ladies to gain the confidence and basic skills required to speak, read and write in Italian or Spanish.

If you’re confident in your use of either language, would be comfortable leading a weekly tutoring session for a small group of service users, and are interested in empowering homeless women to learn new skills, we’d be delighted to hear from you! Although previous tutoring experience is not essential, some experience of skill sharing may be beneficial.

The Marylebone Project will provide any resources required to deliver the tutoring and we reimburse all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for our volunteers.
