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, tutoring GCSEs in core subjects, 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.
