One-to-one English tuition

Posted: August 08, 2020

Our one-to-one English tutors work with individual children in a family, helping with their homework, monitoring their progress, and correcting their English. It is very rewarding, offering an opportunity to get to know the whole family and establish a valuable connection. You don’t need to be a teacher, just enthusiastic and patient, and happy to have a DBS check.

We ask for a minimum commitment of six months.

All tutoring is currently online.

We are looking for:

  • An excellent level of literacy, and general education.
  • Patience.
  • Interest in working with children.
  • An understanding of the national curriculum expectations would be useful but not essential.
  • Willingness to provide brief quarterly progress reports to the Education Group.

In return, you’ll get an opportunity to:

  • Develop your English tuition skills.
  • Establish a valuable connection with a refugee family.
  • Make a real and significant difference to the lives of refugees.
  • Meet a wonderful and passionate group of volunteers from the Cambridge area.
