Assist teachers in carrying out their responsibilities at government schools in SAMOA, the beautiful Heart of Polynesia!

You will teach basic English to children in pre-schools and primary schools in Apia and surrounding areas. Engage in activities related to reading, writing, conversation, basic maths, art & craft, games, sports. Share your knowledge and experience by arranging fun activities which will stimulate the children’s excitement to learn.Furthermore, they will get a grasp of different learning processes.

Overview

Through this project, you can serve the local communities in Samoa by selecting one of the two projects mentioned below.

Teaching at Pre-Schools

We teach at government pre-schools which run from 09:00 to 12:00 from Monday to Friday. The children learn basic reading and writing. They learn alphabets and numbers, and play games and engage in fun-based activities to fuel their learning process. You will help students improve their English by teaching them in English and by having conversations with them so they learn to communicate.

Teaching at Schools

We will also assist at primary schools.. All the children attending the schools come from nearby communities. The schools follow the government syllabus as prescribed by the Ministry of Education, although the day-to-day management in many cases has been delegated to the community councils. Participants spend their time teaching children English and helping them develop communication skills as well as assisting teachers. They will identify students with special needs to provide them with special classes. You may also conduct and participate in activities such as singing, playing games with the children. Musical instruments are a plus – as musical classes are about singing only.
