    It is harder these days for people to just turn up at schools to volunteer to teach. Apart from the fact it is potential dangerous for the kids (so many sex offenders getting caught in Thailand these days) it is also illegal to work, even as a volunteer, without a work permit. At our school we no longer accept volunteers unless you are an accredited school teacher with references from your school.

    Sorry that I cannot be of more help.

    You would think the Thai government would encourage foreigners to volunteer, after all it adds economic stimulus to the economy, from there spending as well as a free service. About the situation being potentially dangerous for kids, well it don't need to be a foreigner to create that type of danger, safe guards need to be put in place for both Thai nationals and foreign volunteers, like security checks. In Australia it is quite easy to have a security check done on some one and this could be made mandatory by Thai authorities when working as a volunteer with children in Thailand. In the cases where foreigner don't speak Thai, it would be a good idea if they did there volunteering with a Thai national as a guide, so there not left alone with the children making it even safer.

    I'm sure if you posted this in the Thai Language forum, a member could help write a message which you could print and show to a school if you need help with explaining what you want to do.
    Wherever you plan to stay in Samut Prakan will be surrounded by Thai schools, all of which have English lessons - just dress smartly and go to the nearest ones to offer your help. If you are staying on a tourist visa and are unpaid, I can't see why a school would reject your offer to help the Thai teacher deliver the English curriculum to their classes for a few weeks. Never tried it myself but the gesture would surely be met with interest.

    maybe because it is illegal and they could get into trouble?

    The laws the law, no matter how ridiculous some may seem.
