Volunteering for Tutorfair - Paramita's story

During the summer of 2015, Paramita took part in the Tutorfair Foundation's  "Summer Slide" workshop.

The Summer Slide workshop was established to bridge the gap between finishing GCSE's and starting AS-Levels, or making the jump from AS to A2. All tuition was focused on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) with each volunteer offering 10 hours of free tuition to students form our partner schools.

Over 50 students and 20 volunteers took part and below are a few words from Paramita, one of the fantastic volunteer tutors.

I am an electrical engineer from India and a few years ago I moved to the UK.

Now my daughter is two (and never leaves me alone). I was looking for something that was related to my profession and would help me get back into the world of work.

Volunteering for Tutorfair gave me an opportunity to look forward more confidently.  During the workshop, I was able to meet new friends and some wonderful students  who were really very bright and who made this new experience even more interesting and enjoyable.

Honestly for me, with this new confidence, it will be easier to start my career again.

I will definitely continue volunteering with Tutorfair as tutoring is my new passion, just like my other one, gardening.
