Volunteer opportunity

In-Home English Tutor

Many of Catholic Charities refugee and immigration clients arrive in America without a working knowledge of the English language. Learning English is an essential foundation for many aspects of life, including: finding and securing work, social connection, and independence. An in-home ESL tutor will help serve some of our clients who cannot attend regular classes due to transportation and/or childcare responsibilities. Help our clients remove one of the biggest barriers to their success by teaching them one-on-one in their own homes on a regular basis. ESL curriculum can be provided by Catholic Charities, or the tutor can bring their own materials.


  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Ability to travel to and from the client's home which may be in a more remote part of Nashville
  • Provide English language instruction focusing on the basic skills needed to apply for jobs or navigate the community
  • Develop a flexible curriculum based on the client's individual needs
  • Preferred experience teaching English as a second language to adults
  • Able to commit to meeting with a client 2-4 hours per week, at least once a week for a minimum of 3 months
