Anyone who completes their formative education in the U.S. is required to study English (also referred to as Literature, Language Arts, or ELA – English Language Arts). With a few exceptions, students are required to take one or more English courses per year from first grade through their first year of college. For this reason, most Americans have come in contact with a multitude of English teachers by the time they graduate, as it is one of the primary core subjects taught at every grade level.

Depending on your future plans, gaining experience as an English teacher volunteer may open other career doors in non-profit organizations or other teaching positions which require some experience with students.
