The Student Tutor project is about delivering the reliable and consistent support that is needed to make a difference. Weekly sessions allow our undergraduates to develop important relationships with the teachers, pupils and their parents, relationships that in some cases have lasted three years. We recruit first year undergraduates many of whom work with us for the whole of their time at Cardiff University. Our partners – often very busy teachers – appreciate such enthusiastic and dependable support.
“Both Student Tutors, Georgina and Holly, have settled well into the school. They help between 30 to 60 pupils on a daily basis. They have built an excellent rapport with the pupils and this can be seen in their willingness to receive help and support from the students.”
Kevin Williams, Maths teacher, Cantonian High School.
“…it would be a pleasure to have Lucy, again if at all possible. She has been excellent and now is very experienced working with pupils of all ages. Please pass on our appreciation to her. Let’s not forget your hard work as well in getting suitable students for us, helping us to help our pupils who are in need. Thank you and look forward to working with you again next year.”
