Online Tutor Spotlights
Meet some of our amazing online English tutors!
I started teaching English for HRI over the summer and although I had such an amazing time, I felt like it was cut short when the session ended. It felt important to continue the work we were doing, so when the English tutoring program started, I was so excited to have my own student that I could really connect with. Rima is such a fast learner and so enthusiastic about it, she never wants to skip a lesson. Even when she makes a mistake like "What clock is for you?" when asking me the time, I can tell she's so eager to use the vocabulary she's familiar with.
I have not had the chance to go to Armenia yet, but I am so happy that this tutoring program provided me with the opportunity to interact with the children there.
I joined Hidden Road Initiative as a way to get closer to my ancestral roots, and connect with fellow Armenians. The events that ensued in late 2020 regarding the Artstakh conflict cemented my ties to my heritage even more, and stressed the importance of ardently advocating for your culture.
Over my experience in HRI, I have undertaken the privilege of being an English tutor for 2 adorable sisters, Meri and Mane, who are 8 and 10 years old from one of Armenia's remote villages. They are the cutest little girls, who are always so happy and eager to learn. The excitement that they have to learn English is incredible.
