Image Before joining the management team here at the Foundation, Mary Ann has been a prolific volunteer and key part of our community. An awesome Science teacher and tutor, Mary Ann started volunteering with us during pandemic. Since then, she’s provided more than 100 hours of free tutoring on a variety of different projects - from KS3 through to A-level. We are so excited to welcome her to our team as our new Programmes Lead!

Mary Ann, what brought you to the Tutorfair Foundation?

I actually heard about it through a friend! They were volunteering two hours a week to help tutor GCSE English to a couple of students last Summer. These students had been negatively impacted by the school closures early in the pandemic. It sounded like a fantastic cause, and a really easy way to have a real, tangible impact on people’s lives. I decided to get involved myself as a volunteer!

What were you up to before you joined us as Programmes Lead?

I was a full time Science and University applications tutor. Before that I was a teaching in a London secondary school for a number of years. I am now based between Amsterdam and London, and tutor entirely online - including my volunteer tutoring. 

What are you excited about in your new role?

I am really looking forward to working with the volunteers to help reach as many disadvantaged students as possible. As a volunteer myself, I was - and still am - really excited about all the projects the charity does. And about the impact these programmes have on children’s lives. Working to make volunteers equally as motivated and making the tutoring as accessible as we can - that’s what I’m really excited about.

If you are a tutor who would like to give one hour per week of free tutoring to a student in need, find out more about volunteering with us here.
