Boston ESOL Job Shouts

Hello Teaching House/IH Boston CELTA trainees & graduates!

As you know, there’s the ‘Job Info’ board in the back corner of the ‘Fenway’ training room here at the center. We add printouts of jobs and employer info – both local and international – there a few times a week on average.

IMG_1755

But you really ought to check Teaching House’s online jobs board for the real dope; there’s a true torrent of jobs posted there on a daily basis. That’s at: http://www.teachinghouse.com/english-teaching-jobs

What I’m doing here, then, is a bit different/more specific:

On THIS page I just cut and paste some of the local teaching jobs I get in my email inbox. Having taught locally for a few years before I joined the team here I’m pretty well connected into the ESOL scene in and around Boston. When I say ‘ESOL’ here, what I mean is teaching English to immigrants here in the US. It’s a teaching context best represented on the CELTA course in the ‘Teaching Literacy & Beginners” input session during Week 3/4.

So, if you’re not quite ready to go aboard and/or are looking for part-time work with which to ‘dip your toes’ before taking on full time work (most of these jobs are p/t, though there are exceptions), have a peek.

I’ll be posting them below – deleting and adding more as time passes. Be sure to pay attention to the dates posted. I’ll try to keep it relatively fresh. And don’t hesitate to email/call me/contact me here if you’re really looking. I may have local ESOL job info hot and fresh out of the oven for ya. 🙂

It’s real passion work, keep in mind. And not typically the type of job people doing their CELTA really have in mind. That said, it’s a sector that could *really* use CELTA-qualified instructors and the work can be incredibly, remarkably rewarding!

*also, please note that requirements and qualifications are VERY flexible for these positions – newly minted CELTA graduates who interview well can easily compete with relatively untrained literacy volunteers, etc. for these jobs. 

Again, I have worked and subbed in many of these programs myself and have personal knowledge of these programs and a relatively extensive network of Boston ESOL contacts. So don’t hesitate to ask me about any of the jobs and programs you see below!

Also note that prep time = paid hours.
