Volunteers

Tutor The Nation partners with schools to deliver completely free online tutoring for disadvantaged pupils preparing for any GCSE or A-level.
Volunteers are matched with a pupil who they will work with one-to-one to give them support to reach their full potential.
Sessions run outside of school hours with each session lasting 1 hour, where pupils will receive help with their subject of choice.
All tutoring is delivered remotely.

Once you’ve registered your interest, we request that you book a quick call with a friendly member of our team. We can have a chat about how the programme works, get to know you better and start the onboarding process. Also, we will run a background check. Following this, we run an hour safeguarding training and tutor training session before matching you with a pupil so you can get tutoring!

It is entirely up to you. We ask for a minimum of 1 hour a week for the duration of one State school term. Volunteering for a full academic year is best. You can choose how many pupils you want to tutor, and this can change over time. We also ask you to spend a little time tutorial planning to make your lessons as successful as possible.

No, previous experience is useful but not necessary. Four of the top private tutoring companies have joined forces to help us support you. Tutor The Nation is also always on hand to provide further support. As a university student or recent graduate, you have already proven your ability to learn as you become an expert in your specific field. Whatsmore, you are familiar with the material having only gone through the same learning process a few years ago. You are set to be a positive and relatable role model.

All you need is a desktop, laptop, or tablet, a webcam, and internet access.

Our online tutoring is powered by Bramble, the UK’s leading live online tutoring platform. Google Chrome provides full support for the cutting edge, interactive features of the Bramble platform.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept applications from tutors living outside of the United Kingdom for safeguarding reasons. However, if you are temporarily based internationally and have a registered address in the UK you are able to volunteer. Being online means that we can match pupils with tutors who are best suited to their academic needs no matter where they are.

We are currently tutoring pupils in years 10-13 preparing for their GCSEs and A-Levels.

All volunteers receive tutor training and safeguard training before you get started. Our partners have produced a first-class package of training resources and top tips for tutoring online. In addition, a highly experienced tutor. Tutor The Nation’s team is dedicated to helping tutors deliver the best lessons possible.

Nothing! No matter how many sessions a pupil receives, tutoring with Tutor The Nation will always be completely free. All costs are covered by Tutor The Nation’s own fundraising.

We believe there are many benefits for our volunteers. On top of making a difference, you will gain invaluable practical experience which will boost your CV and help you stand out from a crowd. You will become part of Tutor The Nation’s community where our team are always on hand to support you. Through volunteering, you can challenge yourself, try something new and practice your skills.

All volunteering is based remotely. This way you can make a difference online from the comfort of your own home.

Yes, all volunteers will require an Enhanced DBS check before volunteering. The cost of this will be covered by the charity. We also accept background checks on the Update Service.
