Join us as a Volunteer Tutor

We’re looking for graduates and undergraduates that can help make a difference in young people’s lives!

Our online volunteer tutors provide academic support to pupils throughout the year. We’re looking for graduates and undergraduates that can:

  • Provide online one-to-one support to pupils over a period of 12 weeks
  • Build pupil confidence in Maths, English or Science
  • Prepare students for GCSE & A-level exams (if applicable)
  • Give feedback to parents and programme coordinators
  • Work collaboratively with other tutors and mentors

To get started you’ll need to:

  • Have strong subject knowledge in Maths, English or Science (confident enough to tutor up to GCSE!)
  • Enjoy working with children and young people
  • Have a minimum of an undergraduate degree or be working towards this
  • Be computer literate, comfortable with tutoring through online platforms.
  • Be able to commit to a period of 6 months (2 school terms)

Please note that this is a volunteering role and we will need to conduct an Enhanced DBS check before you can join us as a tutor.

You will be provided with support and training for your role and any travel expenses within London will be reimbursed up to the amount of £12 for any session.

This isn’t a paid role so there is no salary. However, tutoring with GT Scholars is extremely rewarding. You’ll be able to:

  • Receive training and support for your role
  • Develop leadership skills and teaching or tutoring experience
  • Be a role model and make a real difference in the life of a young person
  • Have flexibility through online volunteering.
  • Join us at our volunteer days in London (if you are able to)
  • Meet like-minded volunteers at our quarterly socials
  • Get involved in our end of year ceremony for our scholars
  • Contribute your skills in arranging our end of year social for volunteers

How to apply: Please attach your CV and a short cover letter through our contact form.
