TutorMe is a student-led volunteering project supported by Enactus UK. Our project aims to provide academic support that connects UCL students with pupils (GCSEs and A-Levels) from London schools and charities on a digital platform. Through online tutoring sessions, we aim to even the education playing field for 'underrepresented' groups such as young carers and students eligible for the government's free meal schemes. Almost half of pupils from these backgrounds are missing out as a result of the current situation.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, national lockdowns in the UK have greatly disrupted studies and worsened the educational attainment gap between these groups and their better-off peers. By joining our project as a volunteer, you will be part of a greater social movement tackling educational inequality and elevating pupils' future aspirations. By offering free academic tutoring to disadvantaged pupils online once a week or on-demand, you can give support to pupils whose families otherwise cannot afford it.
