Action Tutoring is a national education charity that supports disadvantaged young people to achieve a meaningful level of academic attainment. This enables them to go on to progress in education, employment or training. Partner with us as a volunteer tutor, either in-person or online, to support primary and secondary school pupils to increase their subject knowledge, whilst building on confidence and study skills.

Children from lower-income families are less likely to achieve academically than their better-off peers. Action Tutoring is a charity that works to level the playing field.
