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. 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

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.

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 support will I get?
● Training (a two-hour induction session)
● In-session support from your Programme Coordinator
● Tutor workbooks with session plans
● Travel expenses up to £5 per session
● A free DBS check
