Teaching Project

Come make a difference in the lives of the amazing children of Siem Reap! Join us on this thrilling adventure where you will not only teach English, but inspire and motivate the students to take important steps in their lives. The schools we work with are located at the center of the Siem Reap town in Wat Svay Village, Sala Kamreuk Commune. You’ll be working alongside local teachers and participants, taking turns providing instruction during the course of the session. This allows for smaller group engagement and one-on-one help for students who may be struggling with the materials.

Our curriculum accommodates beginners all the way up to level 5, and most of our students currently possess just a basic level of English. Class sizes range from 10-45 students and classrooms are equipped with basic teaching resources. However, we encourage you to bring small learning materials to use in your class and/or donate to our school, to broaden the curriculum and teaching possibilities.

You don’t need special qualifications to volunteer – we welcome anyone who wants to provide help, whether it’s enabling children to hear English pronunciation by native speakers, providing additional help with other academic subjects, or sharing basic hygiene and sanitation routines. Your main role will be to teach English alongside local teachers, prepare lesson plans and exams, and organize fun games and learning exercises.

Aside from the teaching aspect, you’ll have the opportunity to gain invaluable and practical experience, engage in a cultural exchange, and assist the local staff and teachers by providing an extra hand. Our program aims to improve the children’s educational prospects and provide them with learning tools to create a better future for themselves.

Your week will be filled with exciting activities, from orientation and introduction sessions to class observation and teaching sessions. You’ll also have time to prepare for the next day’s lessons, and engage in other activities conducted at the schools. And on Saturdays, you’ll have a chance to explore the beautiful city of Siem Reap.

This adventure can be life-changing for both you and the children you teach. So why wait? Come join us and make an impact in the lives of these incredible kids! Please note that our schedule is subject to change depending on weather and unforeseen circumstances.
