Freya Cunningham

Pronouns: she/her

Freya joined Action Tutoring in March 2022 as the Programme Coordinator for Bristol. She is responsible for overseeing a caseload of partner schools in Bristol, liaising and working closely with the schools and pupils as well as managing our pool of volunteer tutors.

I started volunteering as a tutor with Action Tutoring in 2020 while I was working as a private tutor and studying. I found the workbooks, online training and Programme Coordinators really professional and helpful, and working with my pupils was incredibly rewarding. I was really excited when I saw in February 2022 that the Bristol team was looking for another Coordinator. I thought that if each tutoring session brightened my week, I’d probably love being a Coordinator as we run seven sessions a week!

I love the supportive culture at Action Tutoring, and I feel very lucky to be part of such a strong team. Everyone here cares immensely about our cause and will happily do whatever they can to help each other. Most of all, I love attending the sessions I coordinate. Seeing the positivity and kindness of the volunteers and the progress of their pupils over the weeks and months is really uplifting.
