Volunteer Tutors - English or Maths 2020/21

This opportunity takes place between 15 Sep 2019 and 20 Jul 2021.

As a volunteer English or maths tutor with us you will be able to select one of our partner schools and tutor either on the school premises or remotely. You will 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, so the opportunity can flexibly slot into university schedules. We provide all of our tutors with training and resources, and we will also process a DBS check for you.

What skills do I need?

We are looking students who want to support pupils to succeed. Through your experiences and help, you can inspire ambition in them. Enthusiasm for learning and the subject you're tutoring (English or Maths) is important (but you don’t have to be studying it for your degree). Experience working with young people is helpful but not essential.

What will I gain?

As well as developing essential skills and gaining valuable experience in the education sector, which looks impressive on your CV, volunteering will also provide a link between you and the youngest members of your community - empowering you to give back and make a difference. It’s a great way to make new friends and all volunteers have the opportunity to attend our tutor social events. Skills gained: - Leadership - Organisation - Teamwork - Communication - Listening

Training and support
