Action Tutoring is an exciting education charity that supports young people facing socio-economic disadvantage to achieve a meaningful level of academic attainment. This enables them to go on to further education, employment or training. We partner high-quality volunteer tutors with secondary school pupils to increase their subject knowledge, whilst building on their confidence and study skills.
We will place you as an English or maths tutor with one of our partner schools. You will work with one or two pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term; usually before or after school. Sessions are delivered on the school premises or online at the same time each week.
We also now run online programmes. 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.
We provide all of our tutors with training and resources, and we will also process a free DBS check for you.
Skills and Qualifications:
We're looking for people who are interested in education and want to make a difference to a young person's future prospects. Enthusiasm for the subject you're tutoring (English or maths) is crucial.
We generally require our tutors to either be educated to degree level, or to be studying for a degree, and to have a B grade (or above) at A Level (or equivalent) in the subject they wish to tutor. English or maths-related A Level subjects are also considered, such as: history, politics or sociology (for English tutors) and physics, chemistry and economics (for maths tutors).
Experience working with young people is helpful but not essential. All volunteers must be willing to undergo a DBS check.
We will pay travel expenses of up to £5 per tutoring session attended.
