This opportunity takes place between 15 Mar 2024 and 19 Jul 2024

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 support will I get?
