Use your skills and passions for working with children and teach at an English Activities Camp in Tunisia!

IDEAS has partnered with an English Activities Camp that is helping meet the burgeoning need for young Tunisians to learn English. Tunisia is making great strides toward rebuilding their nation in the post Arab-Spring era and is charting a positive course for other nations in the region to follow. Tunisians realize that if they want their children to have access to the very best opportunities for higher education and employment in the 21st century, they need to learn English. This learning center has programs for children ages 2-14. The approach to teaching English is based on research from the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition (www.carla.umn.edu), and is highly effective with young children.

IDEAS is looking for energetic English teachers with a passion for teaching young children.

This approach utilizes a variety of highly engaging, motivating activities such as sports, music, art, drama and games to teach English to children ages 2-14. Behind every activity is a robust, coherent language acquisition curriculum. Our English teachers will be involved with every aspect of the learning process: planning, preparation, implementation, and assessment.

Teachers:

  • Bachelor’s degree required. A degree in elementary education, early childhood or ESL is highly desirable. Masters degree is a plus.
  • Passion for, and experience in, working with small children (e.g. preschool, daycare, kindergarten, elementary school, summer camps, Sunday school).
  • Lots of energy and enthusiasm.
  • Native English speaker. No foreign language required, but French or Arabic would be a plus.

Market-Tunisia1.jpgTeaching at this exciting English activities camp in Tunisia offers English teachers an opportunity to develop professionally as they learn evidence-based techniques for teaching English to young children. All this takes place in a fast-paced, upbeat environment where teachers and students have fun learning English through engaging, motivating activities.

This camp is located in La Marsa, Tunisia, a suburb of Tunis nestled along the southern coast of the Mediterranean Sea. The programs are held at a charming villa perched atop the hillside of La Marsa, with a breathtaking view of the sea, and just a five-minute walk from the beach. This unique location also lends itself to exploring centuries of Mediterranean history and culture. The Roman ruins of Carthage are less than 10 minutes away, and the Basilica of Damous Karita, where the canon of scripture was completed in 397 AD, is just 5 minutes away.
