Volunteering with Action Tutoring is an easy and rewarding way to make a difference to the lives of young people living in your community. By volunteering and tutoring for just one hour a week, you will be able to directly support disadvantaged young people to build their confidence and help ensure they leave school with the grades needed to build a bright future, as well as developing your own skills.As an English or maths tutor, you will choose one of our partner schools to volunteer with. You can support either in person (following Covid prevention measures) or online (through our virtual classroom). You will work with one or two pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term. Sessions are delivered 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.

We are looking for people 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 have studied it for your degree). Experience working with young people is helpful but not essential.
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). We do review all qualifications and experience however and would encourage you to apply - even if you don't meet the exact criteria.
Experience working with young people is helpful but not essential. All volunteers must be willing to undergo a DBS check.
Through tutoring with us our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of transferable skills (interpersonal, organisational, communication) whilst making a significant difference. Apply today.
