Every lesson booked on Tutorfair.com includes a donation to Tutorfair Foundation. These donations help us with our mission: making tutoring fair. We partner with schools and charities and offer volunteering opportunities directly to tutors registered on Tutorfair.com. Together, we provide students from low-income backgrounds with high-quality tutoring, aiming to improve their academic outcomes, confidence and self-efficacy.
Since the Foundation was established in 2012, our fantastic community has provided tutoring in just about every way you could imagine. We’ve worked in schools, sports clubs, university buildings, church halls and family homes. We’ve worked with primary-age students right through to young-adult learners. We’ve run sessions one-to-one and in groups; both face to face and online. There’ve been homework clubs, summer schools, immersive learning days, workshops and thousands upon thousands of lessons covering English, maths, sciences, languages and more. We even built and piloted an instant-messaging homework support service free to access for less-advantaged students up and down the country.
In short, the road to tutoring 10,000 students has been a winding one – but we’re so proud to be drawing close now. What’s more, passing this milestone during a time of great disruption in education will make it all the more meaningful to us and to those who have supported us along the way.
The clients of Tutorfair.com have played an enormous part, donating the bulk of our funding in each of the past 9 years. Every lesson booked includes a contribution to our programmes – support without which this milestone wouldn’t be possible. As well as this, the incredible generosity of individuals, businesses and grant-makers has been an integral part of bringing us so close to this milestone.
The achievement, when it comes, will be a success shared by everyone in our community – more than 60 schools and charities have helped us to reach the students who need our help the most, and more than 1,000 dedicated volunteers have risen to the challenge with aplomb. Thanks to everyone who has helped us get this far – and thanks to everyone who will help us reach our 10,000th student this year!
You can help us to reach our 10,000th student by donating or volunteering on one of our programmes. If you work with young people from less-advantaged backgrounds and would like to discuss how we can support them, get in touch with us here.
