Could you tutor a motivated student from a disadvantaged background for an hour a week?

Your contribution

  • One hour per week (sometime between 16.30 and 18.30) at your workplace on a day of your choosing. You can choose which subject you tutor from those you studied during your degree and/or A-levels
  • A commitment for 6 months - though you can carry on longer

What you get out of it

  • Training, resources and support

All tutors attend a 2 hour training session after-work which focuses on the skills you need to become an effective tutor. We also give you teaching resources developed by outstanding teachers, and a dedicated member of staff to support you

  • Skills development

"One-on-one tutoring is equally challenging and rewarding. Finding alternative explanations has definitely developed my own understanding of the subject, which I've been able to take back to my research."
Oli Pike, PhD student, Imperial College

  • Measurable impact

“Luke’s call to tell me that he had got into his first choice university was the highlight of my year!”
Alice Fishburn, The Financial Times

Tutoring is coordinated by The Access Project, a charity that works with 8 secondary schools in disadvantaged areas across London. You can take a look at our website here: http://www.theaccessproject.org.uk/">http://www.theaccessproject.org.uk/
