ESL/TESOL Teacher

ReachGlobal

ReachGlobal is partnering with an association of healthy churches that is dedicated to making disciples and planting house churches. These churches have asked the Santo Domingo City Team (SDCT) to engage university students and young professionals in transformational discipleship and outreach, with the goal of integrating them into house churches throughout the city.

With 26 universities in Santo Domingo, teaching English is a key ministry platform for the SDCT; you will work with our ministry partners, tutoring individuals and small groups in English, and help short-term teams teach conversational English effectively as way to introduce the Gospel and disciple Dominican university and high school students. Many students in universities and bi-lingual schools welcome opportunities to practice and learn from a native English speaker.
