    Volunteer Tutor- English and Maths

    Action Tutoring

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    Volunteering with Action Tutoring is a rewarding way to make a difference to the lives of young people living in your community. You will be directly supporting disadvantaged young people to build their confidence and help ensure they leave school with the grades needed to build a bright future.

     

     

    As an English or maths tutor, you will choose one of our partner schools to volunteer with and work with one or two pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term. Sessions are delivered on the school premises or online at the same time each week. We provide all of our tutors with training and workbooks to use in sessions, and we will also process a DBS check for you. 

    Due to the current crisis, we are no longer running face to face programmes however we hope to resume these as soon as it is safe to do so in the Autumn term. 

    We are currently piloting online tutoring over the summer term with a small number of tutors and schools. This will roll out more widely in the Autumn along with an additional in-school year 7 catch-up programme. Online tutoring is a great option for anyone on a busy schedule, less able to get to school locations or continuing to keep their distance from groups of people. Online tutoring also allows us to expand and recruit tutors from outside of our regions. 

    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. Good communication skills, patient, committed and resilient. We do review all qualifications and experience however and would encourage you to apply - even if you don't meet the exact criteria.

    Through tutoring with us our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of transferable skills whilst making a significant difference.
