To apply: please send a short statement of interest and a resume to Wendy Johnson, Assistant Director, Language Institute (firstname.lastname@example.org). The statement should include a brief explanation of qualifications and availability in reference to tutoring times. All volunteers must have an interview with Ms. Johnson and undergo a criminal background check.
