What is Jacari?

Jacari is a charity that works in Oxford and Bristol. We give free home teaching to children who don’t speak English as a first language. 

  • We match up each child with a tutor who is a unviersity student.

  • The Jacari teacher usually teaches the child at home for one hour a week. Sometimes the lessons will happen in school.

  • The Jacari teacher is a volunteer (not paid)

 

How can I get a Jacari teacher for my child?

  • Talk to your child's teacher. They will tell you if your child is eligible for Jacari.

  • If you are eligible for the scheme, complete and sign the form, and give it back to your child’s teacher

  • Your child will go a waiting list

  • When a Jacari teacher is available, they will phone or text you to organise the first lesson.

My child has been referred - what is a Jacari lesson like?

A Jacari lesson could include language games, writing practice, reading or help with homework. The lessons should help your child get better at English and feel more confident in school.

The lessons will be on a day and at a time that is good for you, your child and the Jacari teacher.

If you have any questions, please talk to your child’s teacher or contact the Jacari Coordinator.
