|Could You Teach English to Vallarta Kids?|

The School of Champions is a charitable program run by Feed the Children Vallarta, which offers educational opportunities to kids from underprivileged backgrounds. Over 300 children benefit, receiving after-school classes in English, math and computing every day.
|If you are interested and would like to improve the prospects of these local children, please contact Arthur Fumerton at arthurefumerton(at)yahoo.com or 322-158-8815.|
Classes run from 10 am to 12 pm in the mornings and from 4 pm to 6 pm in the afternoons. We're looking for fluent English speakers who live locally and could dedicate themselves to either the morning or the afternoon shift, preferably for at least six months. You don't need a formal teaching qualification, although some experience of working with kids would be helpful.
Our students are a lot of fun to work with and the experience is extremely rewarding. You will be provided with a detailed program and teaching materials, and there should always be at least one main teacher and one assistant in the classroom at all times. Also, since our students come voluntarily, we try to base our classes around games, songs and fun activities, making them very enjoyable.
If you want to help to give these children a chance at a better future and think you have what it takes to provide them with a fun and engaging educational experience, contact Arthur Fumerton at: arthurefumerton(at)yahoo.com or 322-158-8815.
