Sarah Unninayar

Sarah Unninayar

Senior Programs and Database Manager

As Senior Programs and Database Manager, Sarah oversees the systems that help us manage, track, and support the hundreds of learners and volunteers we engage in our programs. She coordinates many aspects of the tutoring program, including the tutor-learner matching process and waitlist management, and also manages the conversation group program. Before joining the staff, she volunteered with EAL as a conversation group facilitator and programs committee member.

Sarah has worked in academia and for global health and education non-profits. Many of her past roles have required international travel, and Sarah has worked in Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and Mozambique.  She has also lived in Afghanistan and in Russia. While studying in Russia, Sarah taught supplemental English classes at the middle school level.

Sarah has a master’s degree in Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies and a bachelor’s degree in Foreign Service, both from Georgetown University.

 Pethrus Souza

Pethrus Souza

Programs Assistant

As Programs Assistant, Pethrus supports all of our programs and activities and contributes to projects that engage, celebrate and support the success of our learners and volunteers. He works closely with our staff to track program data, maintain regular communications and to plan and produce our events and activities. Pethrus is bi-lingual in English and Portuguese, which increases our capacity to communicate with a growing learner population.

Pethrus was born and raised in Brazil, and came to the U.S. to study English as an Exchange Student in High School, which was very hard. While here, he fell in love with the way Americans lived their daily lives, and came back to study International Business at the University of Georgia. He met his wife during a visit to Boston, and 22 years later he still lives here with his wife, 2 daughters, and their dog. Pethrus is excited to help English At Large because he understands what it’s like being an immigrant and having to learn a new culture and new language.
