The Access Project

The Access Project is a charity which helps disadvantaged children to reach their potential by providing personal tutors and in-school to support to help gain access to top universities. We have been asked whether there are any willing volunteers within the Society that are able to provide personal tutoring for the next academic year, either at GCSE or A-Level. The role would require 1 hour of tutoring per week, and they are particularly looking for people willing to cover STEM subjects. There is a flyer linked here and if anyone would like more information, please email Robyn Tuerena ( and she will provide more details.
