TEACHING – VOLUNTEERING

You can teach English courses to 3rd grade students 4 times a week; volunteers will teach the after-school program from 2 – 5 PM. Our methodology follows Panama’s Ministry of Education (Meduca) guidelines and is intended to complement its syllabus.  Our added-value is to adapt Meduca’s syllabus to make it more interactive and enjoyable for students, while making it easy for volunteers to take over and follow the program.

I recommend this experience for the retirees/seniors that still feel young and still want to work with children and help the society. Definitely I will go again next year, this time for three weeks. Thank you TeachPTY for giving me this opportunity.
