• Being well-versed in English is critical to accessing higher education and employment. Our English Program matches students (adult and youth) with tutors, providing a detailed curriculum and personalized training to ensure success.


  • How It Works



    Once selected, students and tutors are matched based on their language abilities, age, gender and interests.



    Tutors go through an intensive virtual two-week training on the Syrian crisis, working with impacted persons, as well as language pedagogies.



    Matched pairs meet on Skype for two-hour weekly sessions for 16 weeks, using a custom, four-level curriculum.



    Tutors and staff assist students in preparing a CV and a personal statement, and also assist them in accessing professional development webinars.



    Students may apply for a test fund that covers exam fees and logistical costs for taking the IETLS or TOEFL exams. Selection is based on staff's approval.

  • A Language to Open International Doors

    The English language is a medium for students and tutors alike to learn about each other, the cultures they come from and the impact of current events on their lives. Our lessons promote cross-cultural exchanges that go beyond the screen, fostering relationships and deeper compassion for those across the globe.
