Alice Nelson

Alice joined Action Tutoring in August 2019 as the Programme Coordinator for Sheffield, before becoming the Northern Programme Manager in the following year.

As a Programme Manager, Alice oversees the delivery of our tutoring programmes in partner schools. She is in charge of maintaining and developing relationships with partner schools and make sure tutoring sessions run smoothly.


She moved to Sheffield whilst studying for a Geography degree and seventeen years later, she is still here! Since graduating, Alice has spent eighteen months volunteering in Europe, she’s worked on several projects in schools across south Yorkshire and most recently worked to tackle loneliness and isolation in older adults.

She is passionate about supporting Sheffield’s most disadvantaged young people to succeed and broaden their opportunities for the future.

Away from work, Alice negotiates the seven hills of Sheffield on her bicycle and enjoys making her garden as verdant as possible.
