CHICLE accepts applications from individuals with prior experience who are looking for part-time teaching, translating, or interpreting work.
We teach many languages, to both adults and children.
We translate primarily into Spanish but also to and from many other languages. We occasionally do transcriptions, again primarily from Spanish to English. Our interpreting work is also primarily for Spanish-speakers although we occasionally get requests for French, Portuguese, Mandarin, Punjabi, Karen, Burmese, and Korean as well as other lanuages. Please keep in mind that we cannot offer full-time positions or visa support.
When we have a specific, immediate need, we will post it on this page.
We are currently seeking:
- Children's teachers for Spanish, French and German
- Swedish teacher
- Sgaw Karen translator/interpreter/teacher
- Greek teacher
Applicants to teach, translatate, or interpret will be interviewed by Perla Saitz or Rebeca Cabrera. Teachers will be asked to prepare a short "model lesson" so we can get an idea of your comfort level in the classroom. Translators will need to provide an example of a previous translation in their language pair.
When you are hired, you will be given a packet of forms to fill out. This includes a contract for teachers and for interpreters/translators and a federal W-9 form, for which you will need a valid Social Security number or Taxpayer Identification Number (required for non-resident aliens or other residents not eligible for a Social Security number).
We will ask all prospective teachers to observe our Spanish or other language classes so that they have a good idea of how we teach and of the “CHICLE style.”
