Volunteer tutor - English or maths

What You'll Do: 

In this country, if you’re from a poorer socio-economic background, you are less likely to achieve academically than your peers. Volunteer as an English or maths tutor with us and you will be helping these young people reach their potential. You will be directly supporting them to build their confidence and help ensure they leave school with grades that enable social mobility.

 

As a volunteer tutor, you will choose one of our partner schools and work with 1-3 pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term (8-10 weeks). Sessions are either delivered on the school premises or online, at the same time each week. We provide all of our tutors with training and workbooks/session templates to use in sessions, and we will also process a DBS check for you!

What You'll Learn: 

Through tutoring with us our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of transferable skills whilst making a significant difference. As an Action Tutoring tutor, you will develop the following skills:

  • Communication
  • Subject knowledge (in English or maths)
  • Working with young people
  • Confidence
  • Resilience
  • Motivation
  • Organisation
What We're Looking For: 

You need to be a fluent English speaker, and have achieved an A or B at A-Level (or equivalent) in the subject, or similar subject, you are wishing to tutor. Enthusiasm for learning and the subject you’re tutoring is important. Experience working with young people is helpful but not essential. We look for volunteers with good communication skills, patience, commitment and resilience. We do review all qualifications and experience and would encourage you to apply even if you don't meet the exact criteria.
