The role

Our client are looking for passionate and qualified Maths teachers who can make a real difference to high-ability students. They will deliver a structured programme of weekly online tuition to small groups of carefully selected students.

As a tutor with our client you will use your extensive experience teaching Maths to stretch and challenge our students to become excellent mathematicians.

What we do

Our client is a charity working to combat inequality.

They carefully select the students who will most benefit from their support, and then match them in small groups with one of their fantastic tutors.

As a tutor, the charity expects you to:
  • Stimulate, inspire and challenge your group of students every session
  • Deliver weekly hour-long sessions for at least 10 weeks online
  • Review and understand the session materials that will be provided to you at the start of each week
  • Provide feedback on the progress of the programme
  • Take part in training, observations and appraisals
  • Adhere to the charity's Safeguarding and other policies

What we look for in a tutor:
  • Passion for supporting young people to realise their full potential
  • Inspirational and engaging teaching style
  • Qualified maths teacher with extensive teaching/tutoring experience (in schools or other settings)
  • Experience teaching Maths up to at least Key Stage 4, preferably beyond
  • Ability to commit to after-school or weekend sessions at the same time each week for at least the duration of a school term (10 weeks)
  • Right to work in the UK

We are an equal opportunities employment business and agency working on behalf of our clients and welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/belief, sexual orientation or age.
