Teachers for online English lessons with refugees

This is a call for teachers who would like to volunteer to help refugees by offering free online English lessons. Since June of 2022, we have been offering free online lessons for Ukrainians displaced from their homes as a result of the war.

We have students who are resettling in the UK, Europe and the US joining our classes and they are being taught by volunteer teachers who are based in many different countries around the world. We now need a few more teachers so that we can accept more students.

We are asking for teachers to volunteer to teach one 40 minute lesson on Zoom one day a week starting at 18.00 UK time (that's 19.00 in France/Spain, 14.00 in Toronto/New York, 15.00 in São Paulo, 11.00 in San Francisco, 20.00 in Turkey).

If you would like to offer some of your time to teach one online lesson a week, please contact me at

The students are lovely, very motivated and so very appreciative.

If you are not able to help but you know people who might want to, please pass this message on to them.
