English Tutoring Program (ETP)

In cooperation with the Ministry of Education, volunteers help schoolchildren with their English studies. Nationwide

The Problem

Classes are too big for pupils to receive individual attention. Many fall behind in their studies, especially in English. Those whose parents can afford it, receive help from private tutors. But not everyone has access to such extra support, and it is often those who need it most who must go without.

The Solution

Provide children with free English tutoring during school hours from English speaking tutors who need no experience or qualification, just the desire to assist!

The Method

ESRA Branch Coordinators, in consultation with their area’s English Inspector, contact schools who require tutors. Tutors are placed in the school of their choice where they volunteer for 2 hours a week. ESRA offers training for its tutors and they are also given guidelines by the schools’ English teachers.    

ESRA ETP approved by Ministry of Education


Tutors nationwide, choose the type of school where they want to volunteer that is close to where they live.
