Volunteer Tutor (Maths or English)

What You'll Do: 

We are looking for volunteers to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds in maths or English. As a volunteer, you’ll:

  • Work with 1-3 pupils to improve their English and maths, either in-person or online
  • Commit to a 10-20 week programme, for just one hour a week
  • Support either primary or secondary school-aged pupils
  • Use our tutor workbooks to shape your weekly sessions
Why You'll Love It: 

Our volunteers say:

 

The Action Tutoring team has been fabulous in their support: timely updates, always available, closely following progress, and ready to intervene where needed, very professional indeed!”

 

“Volunteering is very rewarding. I would say the skills that one develops from teaching the pupils are transferable into any walk of life and make you a better person. I would highly recommend it.”

From Djibril, a Year 6 pupil:

“My tutor is very nice and is always there for me. They help me in a way that I can understand. Thank you very much for always being there for me, and thank you for being supportive.”

 

What You'll Learn: 

What skills can I gain?

Through tutoring with us our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of transferable skills, including:

  • Facilitation
  • Initiative
  • Working with children
  • Communication
  • Planning
  • Emotional intelligence 
  • Resilience
What We're Looking For: 

What skills do I need?

 

We look for volunteers who:

  • Have or are studying for a degree (in any subject) 
  • Have a B grade (or above) at A Level (or equivalent) in the subject they wish to tutor, or a similar subject

If your qualifications do not match these requirements, we still encourage you to apply. We take all previous experience into consideration, so please include anything you think might be relevant.

Programmes run during term-time. You can sign up at any time throughout the year.
