Do you want to build your teaching skills in a professional environment? Adult Basic Education (ABE) instructors help adults learn basic reading and writing skills. Classes are typically small and instruction is usually one-on-one. Generally, our clients enroll in ABE classes as a precursor to High School Equivalency (HSE) prep. HSE instructors help adults who do not have a high school diploma and who are seeking to pass a high school equivalency exam (e.g. the GED). HSE instructors also work with their students one-on-one.
Our term of service lasts for 8 months as a full-time position. You will receive free health benefits and many professional development sessions.
