English and Coffee | Tutor Recruitment

What is English and Coffee? 

Last year, teams from our church traveled to 8 different mega-cities, offering free English tutoring through materials based on the book of Luke. Friendships were made, hope was found and lives were impacted for eternity.

As we LOVE LA this year, we're bringing the same program to our church for the entire month of July! 

People from all over our city will be coming into our Shepherd home to improve their English, and we're looking for volunteers like YOU to help them practice, through simple one-on-one conversations. 

Materials, coffee and snacks will be provided during session times.  

What is required of you?

You don't have to be a professional English teacher by any means! All that is required of you is to: 

  • Be able to Speak and Read English
  • Be willing to Share Personal Experience with God
  • Commit to at least one Hour Per Week


You will have the option to create your own schedule during Pillars Cafe hours, or tutor for at least one hour (preferably more) during the following session times during the month of July:

    Sundays | 2:00-6:00 P.M.

    Tuesdays | 12:00-4:00 P.M.

    Wednesdays | 4:00-8:00 P.M. 


We will meet during the above times on the Shepherd campus in MC 104 (located in white building with steeple), but will have freedom to spread out to public areas throughout the campus such as Pillars Cafe and the outdoor plaza. If you can't make it to a main session time, you will be asked to meet on the Shepherd campus at Pillars Cafe during their hours of operation or in the outside plaza. 


A mandatory training is included and will equip you with the understanding and materials you will need to be successful. 

Please click the blue "Register" button at the top of this page for the English and Coffee Tutor Training taking place Saturday, June 8th from 9:00 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. in MC 104.
