Action Tutoring is an education charity that supports disadvantaged young people to achieve meaningful qualifications on leaving primary and secondary school. We partner our brilliant volunteer tutors with school pupils to increase their subject knowledge, whilst building on confidence and study skills.
In this country, if you’re from a poorer socio-economic background, you are less likely to achieve academically than your peers. Volunteer as an English or maths tutor with us and you will be helping these young people reach their potential. You will be directly supporting them to build their confidence and help ensure they leave school with grades that enable social mobility.
As a volunteer tutor, you will choose one of our partner schools and work with 1-3 pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term. Sessions are either delivered on the school premises or online, at the same time each week. We provide all of our tutors with training and workbooks/session templates to use in sessions, and we will also process a DBS check for you!
