Quito Teach

In Ecuador it is very important to learn English from early years. GET Ecuador partners with pre-schools, primary schools, middle schools, high schools and English Schools throughout Ecuador to link these organizations with international volunteers or English teachers. Applicants will also assist with other subjects such as Math, Science, Computer skills, Extra-curricular activities and Sports if required by the local Institution.

Working directly with Ecuadorian students will give volunteers and teachers the chance to learn about many of the issues they face every day and a deep understanding of the local culture. International volunteers and English teachers also provide Ecuadorian students with the unique experience of getting to know a foreigner and serve as mentors and role models to the students.
