Working with Nevy's has been a wonderful experience for me. Not only has it allowed me to improve my interpersonal skills, but I've also gained a sense of personal fulfillment from helping others achieve their English-language goals. In addition, Nevy's wide variety of materials makes teaching students of all levels straightforward and productive: perfect for anyone who's new to tutoring!
Volunteering with Nevy's Language was such an enriching experience for me. I love how Nevy's Language makes teaching English a breeze through its easy-to-browse website and well-structured content. Volunteering with Nevy's is an incredible way to give back to society and gain valuable teaching experience.
My experience teaching for Nevy language has been nothing but positive. To be able to teach students that are eager, receptive, appreciative and deserving of the opportunity has been very gratifying. It has opened my eyes to real world challenges - beyond linguistic ones - that Canadian immigrants face, and this is facilitated by the one-to-one teaching method. It is impossible not to be moved by the founder’s vision and subsequent and continuous quest for growth. The initial training offered is clear and very useful, and the site and resources are easy to navigate. It is a win-win experience for both new and seasoned teachers, as well as the student. I highly recommend any teacher to devote a few hours a week to this excellent cause!
My experience with Nevy's Language has truly been superior. I highly recommend this organization. I had just finished my online TEFL course with International TEFL Academy when I was trying to figure out how to complete my practicum. I was a bit overwhelmed. I easily found a place to observe ESL classes but not to tutor or student teach. I found Nevy's and was intrigued since it is a nonprofit social enterprise to help immigrants. I also realized that I was not really ready to start marketing myself as a paid tutor and after carefully considering the Nevy's option to help me complete my practicum, I decided to give it a try. Immediately, I realized that the team at Nevy's is extremely professional and very well-organized. After a simple application process and a recorded video interview, I was guided through the online training with Nevy's which I found very beneficial. And then I was able to choose from a few different student options. Now, I have been tutoring for about 1.5 months with Nevy's. It has been extremely rewarding to help my student (a young man who immigrated to Canada) and to monitor his progress. I too have learned a great deal from this experience which I will be able to use in my future teaching jobs. The initial contact email that I received from Nevy's made it clear that you need to understand your commitment of training plus the 2 months, but that in turn Nevy's is also committing to you to support you as a teacher. This is absolutely true. I have invested time into this volunteer opportunity but I could not be more pleased with the results and the fact that this has been a wonderful transition from taking the online TEFL course to move toward teaching or tutoring for pay.
“I went into my very first tutoring session at Nevy's Language feeling prepared and equipped through the training videos and materials provided. The sessions here are flexible and have allowed me to work from home on my schedule with the students of my choice. This opportunity has provided me with valuable first-hand teaching experience. I have gained knowledge regarding strategies and methods of teaching that will come in handy for my future career. I'm so glad I took part in this organization, as it has strengthened my belief that I want to pursue a career in teaching.”
“"My experience teaching with Nevy’s Language was extremely positive. Even though I had taught online before, it was my first experience teaching ESL, and Nevy’s made the transition as smooth and as worry-free as possible. All of the training and the teaching materials were extremely helpful and comprehensive, and I went into my sessions with my students feeling confident and prepared. My students were all friendly, hard-working, and eager to learn, and it’s been very rewarding to watch their progress and to know that I’m helping them gain useful and practical English skills for their life. The admin team at Nevy’s was extremely helpful in answering any questions I had, and I feel much more confident as an ESL teacher after this experience. I highly recommend this organization for any ESL teacher, whether you are completely new to teaching or are an experienced teacher.”
“"Nevy's Language has given me an excellent opportunity to strengthen my teaching skills. As a new teacher, I gained the right confidence and experience in my field by tutoring students with different levels and different learning needs. Moreover, scheduling and matching with the student are always convenient and flexible. For those who consider teaching as a passion and would also want to hone their skills, I would recommend them to be part of this helpful, supportive, and resourceful team at Nevy's. My experience at Nevy's Language has made me a better teacher, and I am happy to be a part of it.”
