Below are a few words from Robert about his experience volunteering for Tutorfair.
Having recently completed a voluntary placement at Paddington Academy, I’d just like to say how much I’ve enjoyed the experience. All the staff have been very supportive and a great pleasure to work with, and in turn have really appreciated the extra hand in the classroom.
It’s also been very rewarding working with students with a variety of personalities and educational needs and this has made for a great opportunity to extend my range of experience.
While volunteering, I worked with two teachers, supporting each class on alternate weeks. I benefitted from this arrangement as I got to teach 3 different modules and texts and was able to observe two different teaching styles.
This kind of assignment really highlights the value of volunteering in education: as a Tutorfair volunteer you get some great hands-on experience whilst actively supporting pupils in the attainment of their educational goals.
