Ramon Selvakumaran

Pronouns: he/him

Ramon joined Action Tutoring in June 2022 as the Finance Administrator.

His role includes ensuring the finance system and financial records are up to date, generates finance reports and also supports the wider team by making sure processes run smoothly.

He got a taste of the organisation as a volunteer on online maths programmes over the last two academic years. He was keen to join the team after numerous inspirational interactions with pupils and staff, seeing how effective the tutoring model could be, and being excited about the growth potential of both Action Tutoring and their impact on the education system and children across the country. He is delighted to be part of a collaborative and diverse team that is forward-thinking and aims for high standards across the board.

Ramon graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in Economics. He went on to work in the care industry followed by the property industry. In that time he enjoyed volunteering opportunities that include coaching football for children in South Africa and, more recently, partaking in afterschool and holiday clubs plus hosting football sessions for children. It was these volunteering activities that ignited his spark to start working in the charity sector for an organisation that could positively influence so many young lives.

His hobbies include playing as much football as he can, visiting food markets, eating out, and spending time with his family. His ideal weekend away would be going to the countryside for some hiking, eating at cosy cafes, drinking at village pubs, and playing board games and watching films to wind down.
