Volunteer tutor – English or maths tutor

Description


Children from lower-income families are less likely to achieve academically than their better-off peers. Action Tutoring is a charity that works to level the playing field.

We are looking for volunteers to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds in maths or English.

Good grades improve future prospects, opening the door to a wider range of opportunities. If you enjoy working with children and are passionate about social equality, you can make a tangible difference by volunteering for an hour a week.

We offer corporate partnerships as well as individual volunteering and Placements for university students

What support will I get?

  • Training (a two-hour induction session)
  • In-session support from your Programme Coordinator
  • Tutor workbooks with session plans
  • A free DBS check
  • On demand and live webinar training
  • Travel expenses up to £5 per session for face to face, if available in your area

Programmes run during term-time, usually before, during or after the school day. You can sign up at any time throughout the year.

Through tutoring with us our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of transferable skills, including, communication, organisations, planning, initiative, facilitation, emotional intelligence, resilience and, of course, working with children.

 

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

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.
