Volunteer tutor (English or maths)

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.

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 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

If you enjoy working with young people and are passionate about educational equality, you can make a tangible difference by volunteering for just an hour a week!

Sign up today -  https://www.actiontutoring.org.uk/get-involved/volunteer

The application takes 15 minutes to complete and you will hear back from us within 1-2 business days. 

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

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 skills do I need?

We look for volunteers who:

  • Have or are studying for a degree in any subject
  • Have at least a B grade at A-Levels (or equivalent) in the subject they wish to tutor, or a similar subject

You need to be a fluent English speaker, and enthusiasm for the subject you’re tutoring is important. Experience working with young people is helpful but not essential.

We understand that not everyone interested in volunteering with us will have completed A-Levels or attended university. If your qualifications do not match these requirements, we still encourage you to apply! We would love to hear about any other relevant qualifications, training or work experience.

What skills can I gain?

Through tutoring with us, our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of transferable skills, including:

  • Facilitation
  • Initiative
  • Working with children
  • Communication
  • Planning
  • Emotional intelligence 
  • Resilience


Action Tutoring volunteers come from a range of different backgrounds and occupations and are aged from 18 to 80! As a volunteer, you can be part of a like-minded community and have a direct impact on the outcomes of the next generation. We also can provide you with a reference at the end of your first programme.

From a Year 6 pupil:

“My tutor is very nice and is always there for me. They help me in a way that I can understand. Thank you very much for always being there for me, and thank you for being supportive.”
