Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Could you join us next term as a tutor?

Volunteers and Friends of GT Scholars – Could you join us next term as a tutor?

We hope that your week has been great so far and that you are looking forward to the weekend, but before it begins we would like to share a couple of things with you.

Could you join us in the new term as a mentor?
Could you volunteer your time to mentor for 2 hours a month and help a young person grow and achieve their aspirations? Our mentoring programme is one of our most popular and rewarding programmes and we are expecting an influx of scholars to join this programme in the new academic year. Our goal is to match all scholars on the programme with mentors within the first two weeks of the programme. If you are available to mentor, please feel free to contact us for more information.

Do you know of someone who would like to volunteer?
We are always trying to increase our reach and impact to ensure we help as many young people as possible. Our volunteers are one of our most important cornerstones and we are always interested in meeting new potential volunteers. If you know of someone who will make a great volunteer tutor or mentor you can refer them to our contact page or let them know about our next volunteer meetup which will be in the next couple of weeks.

What are the qualities of a good tutor?
It takes a special person with a certain set of qualities to be a good tutor. Being an expert in a subject is not the most important aspect of tutoring. The knowledge must still be successfully passed on to the tutee. A good tutor has a special combination of qualities which includes subject knowledge, patience and adaptability. This blog post list 7 personal qualities of a good tutor.  

GT Scholars is a not-for-profit social enterprise and registered charity. Our after-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment programmes are designed to help young people aged 11-18 achieve their academic and career aspirations. Contact us to find out how you can join us a volunteer tutor or mentor and make a difference in young people’s lives.
