Hi!

I am traveling to Vancouver within a few days, and am seeking to volunteer, as TESOL tutor (business English), preferably for a humanitarian organization, in
exchange for accommodation.

Available for three months.

All legal, ethical, above-board offers considered!

Thank you!!

Thanks Unionjack for your prompt reply.

I'll certainly look up those websites I'm not already familiar with.

Are you aware that several of those organizations charge what I consider a
hefty (a few thousands, for just a couple of weeks) fee?

That fee includes fare, accommodation and 'placement'. The amount charged is justified because the applicant's hand is 'held' all the way...

I have traveled solo numerous times, and the reason for my requesting an
exchange accommodation/tutoring is mainly economical!

All the best!!
