Job description

Nevy’s Language is non-profit social enterprise that started in Toronto, Canada to help immigrants to Canada improve their English language levels. We have been operating online pairing immigrants across Canada and the United States with teachers like yourselves that want to help them. To date, we’ve matched over 600 students and 600 teachers and have run thousands of hours of live, online learning.

We pair teachers with students for one-on-one, online sessions in themes such as General English, Daily Life English, Workplace English and Citizenship. We grab your availability and the maximum hours you would like to dedicate to this and pair you with a student (or two) with the same requested days and times. We set you off on a fixed schedule of sessions, week in, week out, for a 2 month period.

Once paired, we give you a profile of the student and the curriculum to use (yes, you don’t have to develop any materials!) – all you have to do is implement some of our recommended teaching methods and teach your student to the best of your ability. It’s that simple and students find it very convenient and effective.

Our students are mostly adults between the ages of 30 and 50 and at the beginner levels. They work in industries such as Hospitality, Food Services, Construction, Manufacturing and Transportation. Your local Uber driver might be studying with us!

The commitment for this opportunity is a 2-month term minimum and a 4-hour weekly minimum. You have to prepare briefly before every lesson and send the links that were covered in the session as homework. Please consider this opportunity carefully before applying as we hold our teachers to a very high standard of integrity and performance. A lack of performance according to our standards will result in dismissal from our program.

For those looking to do their practicum with us, this term can help you complete the number of teaching hours required to complete your practicum requirements as well as facilitate recording some of your sessions for your record keeping. We can gladly become a reference for you while you look for work and issue a certificate of completion if needed. We train and invest in you, so that you can invest in your student’s learning.


Salary & benefits

This is a volunteer position. We will act as a reference upon completing your term with us.
