ESRA’s English Tutoring Program (ETP)

ESRA’s ETP facilitates the work of the English teacher, promotes the students' academic achievements, and provides great satisfaction to volunteer tutors.

ESRA’s English Tutoring Program (ETP) is one of ESRA’s most important programs.  In operation for over a decade with proven success in improving students' academic English language achievements, the program is recognized and recommended by the Israel Ministry of Education as a Teacher’s Support supplier. There are today some 500 ESRA volunteers tutoring children in 120 schools across the country.

ESRA’s volunteers working within this program are immigrants from English speaking countries, newcomers to Israel as well as veteran Israelis. They have all undergone an intake process and receive professional guidance. Their aim is to create familiarity with the English language and strengthen the student's self-confidence in its use, aiding the weaker students and enriching the advanced ones.

During "normal" times, the volunteers tutor children within the school setting, once or twice a week, working with the children one-on-one or in small groups, and in accordance with their English teachers' guidelines and the curriculum of the Minister's English Supervisor.

During this past "Corona year", ESRA’s ETP adapted itself to comply with the remote learning program and invested much in both technical and pedagogic training of our tutors to enable them to continue their work online, using Zoom.

In addition, we developed three new programs:
Chat Away, Taking English out of the classroom | Homebound | Teacher Chat 

The success of ESRA’s ETP is based on collaboration with the school, based on three important elements:

  • The school's assigning a coordinator to work together with ESRA’s tutors and relevant Branch Coordinators.
  • Professional supervision by the coordinator or English teacher to guide the tutor per pedagogic requirements.
  • Filling out a brief online form twice a year for valuable feedback enabling the continuous improvement of the program

ESRA’s ETP facilitates the work of the English teacher, promotes the students' academic achievements, and provides great satisfaction to volunteer tutors.
