English as a Second Language (ESL) instructors teach English to recent immigrants, refugees, and individuals wanting to improve their English skills. These members work with adults throughout the Austin and Houston community. ESL instructors work to develop the program they are working with, form relationships with their students and supply English instruction that is useful in clients' day-to-day lives. Daily schedules can range from a typical 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM, or members may teach a few classes throughout the day and night depending on the needs of the community being served. Proficiency in Spanish is useful, but certainly not required.
