The Human RightS Initiative (HRSI) at CEU seeks volunteers to join their English Tutoring program that aims to benefit students at the Ambedkar Secondary School at CEU. The project has been initiated by Professor Karoly Boroczky, head of the Department of Mathematics, and is supported by CEU’s Civic Engagement Office, Roma Access Programs (RAP) and Human RightS Initiative (HRSI).
14 secondary school students are expected to participate in the English Tutoring Program at CEU. The students will come to CEU once a month until the end of the academic year (9 occasions in total), on a Friday, and will spend the day learning English. These occasions are meant to prepare and help enable students to apply for further studies. The dates of the tutoring sessions in the Fall Semester are October 7 (Welcome Event), October 28 (1st session), November 18 (2nd session), and December 9 (3rd session).
What will volunteers do?
Volunteers will teach English to the 14 secondary school students in the framework of two separate tutoring sessions: a morning session and an afternoon session.
Morning Sessions: For these sessions, volunteers are sought who are able to teach students in a structured, formal way, focusing mostly on English grammar.
Afternoon Sessions: For these sessions, volunteers are sought who would like to teach English in a conversational, less formal way, involving discussions and games.
NOTE: It is possible to participate at only one or two sessions but HRSI is nevertheless looking for responsible and dedicated volunteers.
How can volunteers benefit?
Volunteers will have the chance to get to know and interact with members of the wider Hungarian society, practice teaching English, and contribute to positive social change in Hungary. Additionally, participants can record their volunteer hours at the Civic Engagement Office's Track your hours! program.
