What our volunteer tutors say:
Birmingham is home to many committed and talented volunteer tutors. From retired teachers and students hoping to get into teaching, to professionals looking for give something back, they bring their experience and enthusiasm to every session. As our base of pupils grows, we are always looking for new volunteer tutors; click here to find how you can volunteer with us in Birmingham.
My pupils have made some great improvements and their aspirations for what grade they want has risen, which is encouraging.

What our pupils say:
We have also been lucky to work with some incredible young people in and around the city of Birmingham, and we are looking forward to meeting many more. The pupils are continually impressing us with their hard-work and motivation, offering insights and original thoughts on the topics they are studying. It’s been a pleasure supporting them through their studies.
I think that this is a very good opportunity to be involved in and I thoroughly enjoyed the chance I was given to boost my grade. Thank you so much for my tutoring sessions, they were very helpful and enjoyable. Also I did much better in my recent maths test thanks to revision tips and tutoring sessions.
