About the Position: The ESL Teacher at Edúcate YA is responsible for delivering an average of 12-15 hours of weekly English language lessons to our students. These classes are part of a free adult education program for in-need members of the Hispanic/Latinx community of the greater Portland area. Group classes at this time are being delivered via Zoom, due to the pandemic. The schedule is divided into morning classes and evening classes, with time for lesson prep in between. Teaching from home for some of these hours is a possibility, though we currently have a small number of staff (3-4) reporting to work at our office Monday through Friday. Ideally whoever is interested in this position will be able to attend current classes via Zoom, to observe how they have been conducted, and to later meet with the current ESL Teacher to collaborate about this transition.

Keep record of student attendance and enrollment, as well as lessons executed.
It is necessary that the teacher has a strong understanding of English grammar -- from basic to advanced concepts. These lessons usually incorporate vocabulary focus areas, but are largely grammar-based.
The teacher should be prepared to develop lesson plans based on a basic curriculum. In the past, textbooks have been used but due to the current online format we are using an online service called ESL Library to source course material and teaching aids.
The right person for this job will be able to demonstrate patience, and will be interested in connecting with Portland’s Latinx and immigrant communities.
Bilingual Language and Bicultural Skills -- fluent writing, speaking and reading in Spanish & English strongly preferred.
TEFL/TESOL certification AND/OR language tutoring/teaching experience.
Familiarity with Zoom, Google Drive, etc. Basic computer literacy to aid in teaching of virtual classes.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"EducateYa is a wonderful community place where I had the privilege to teach English to Spanish speakers in Portland. My students came from Hillsboro and drove all the way into town because the methods EducateYa used are so successful. The management at EducateYa, including Rafael Arellano-Barrera are encouraging to all teachers and students to learn, experiment and grow. I highly recommend EducateYa for its mission statement and principles to make everyone in the U.S. bilingual. Yes!" Nana Nash
