Volunteer tutor (maths or English)

this task:

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 by empowering pupils to make meaningful academic progress, and opening doors to future opportunities.

 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 one hour at the same time each week

  • Support either primary and/or secondary school-aged pupils

  • Use our tutor workbooks to shape your weekly sessions

Where can I volunteer?

Face-to-face opportunities are available in Birmingham, Bristol, Merseyside, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield, London and Sussex. You can tutor online from anywhere in England, Scotland and Wales. 

Please note we cannot currently accept volunteers who live outside the UK or are under 18. Our programmes run during term time, and you can sign up at any time throughout the year.

What support will I get?

  • Training (a two-hour induction session)

  • In-session support from your Programme Coordinator

  • Lesson plans with additional online resources

  • Travel expenses up to £5 per session

  • A free DBS check
