Enriching experience at John Osteen.
You'll meet awesome people that will do the best for you to feel home! The kids are loving and the staff is really kind. Be prepared because you might need to lead a class all by yourself, classroom experience is actually required. The kids have good english because it is a bilingual school, so even if you don't speak spanish, there will always be someone to help you and you're gonna learn it quickly then. The place you stay is calm and safe, only a few minutes from Quito, bus stops few blocks away. Definitely worth the experience.




Incredible experience. You will be put in front of a class alone, so being strict is a skill you need.
The children are incredibly interested in you and the little ones will just keep wanting to hug you.
The teachers are really busy so you are really helping them a lot.

You will be taken care of by the family who owns the school. For me they went a great length in visiting hospitals when I pulled my hamstring.




Everything about it is just amazing.




It was a great experience to work at the J Osteen Academy. Especially liked teaching the kids from the Football team. The hosts are really warm and very helpful. Would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Ecuador as a volunteer and wants cultural immersion. I'm glad that I signed up for this.
