"I was a little nervous before I started teaching because I have never taught anything in a formal classroom environment.  I think it took me about a week to feel comfortable with the process of teaching.  The students were very helpful and easy to work with. They made this new experience very positive."


I am from California in the United States.  I found Slukat through Facebook and Google. I graduated from college 4 years ago, and am now working.  I am doing this volunteer work on my vacation time.

I have never done any type of volunteer work while traveling and thought it would be a good way to experience a different style of traveling from the standard tourist experience.  Slukat seemed to be a well run organization with a good mission so I decided to volunteer.  I was initially planning to volunteer for 3 weeks, but I have extended my time by 1 week to make 4 weeks total.

The students are very good, they are very eager to learn, and are very enthusiastic.  It is very rewarding to see them understand a new concept or word.
