It is the best thing we've done in our whole school lifetime! We absolutely love it and don't want it to end!
Pupils at Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School
The tutoring has been really good because it's covered things that we don't always have time to do in class, in a really structured way. My tutor gave me a list of literary devices to learn and it's really helped me understand poetry a lot more. It's also helped my confidence a lot. One thing that has been really helpful is going through past papers every week because it makes me feel like I can do well in the exams.

Thank you for all your help over the term. I have learnt a lot, and my tutor made Maths much easier to understand.

Action Tutoring is the most rewarding tutoring you will do. The kids are enthusiastic, interested, and really appreciate the attention. It is a great project to be a part of.
Toby McLachlan, Tutor at Lambeth Academy
Tutoring Maths with Action Tutoring is great. Small groups mean the students are always focused and engaged. It's incredibly rewarding to watch their confidence grow and help them reach their potential.
