The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

Volunteer (maths or English) Tutor

Details Hide[-]

What would I be doing?

As an English or maths tutor, you will choose one of our partner schools to volunteer in and work with one or two pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term. Sessions are delivered on the school premises 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. 

Due to the current crisis, we are no longer running face to face programmes however we hope to resume these as soon as it is safe to do so. 

We are currently piloting online tutoring over the summer term with a small number of tutors and schools. This will roll out more widely in the Autumn along with an additional in-school year 7 catch-up programme. Online tutoring is a great option for anyone on a busy schedule, less able to get to school locations or continuing to keep their distance from groups of people. Online tutoring also allows us to expand and recruit tutors from outside of our regions.

What will I get out of it?
By volunteering and tutoring for just one hour a week, you will be able to directly support disadvantaged young people to improve their subject knowledge, grow their confidence and help ensure they leave school with the grades needed to build a bright future.   

Tutoring is also a great way to gain some valuable work experience, whether you are interested in a career in teaching or just looking to enhance your CV by building your interpersonal, time management and communications skills. Our pupils really enjoy working with people from a wide range of backgrounds and often see our volunteers as role models. 

When can I start?
We run tutoring programmes throughout the academic year.  Once you’ve applied through our short online application form and attended training we will send you a full list of opportunities so that you can select one that works for you.
