Academic Support Tutor

You will be supporting students with either their homework, revision and study skills or with IntoUniversity’s structured curriculum. Sessions are free and take place after school in our local learning centres. You will be supporting primary or secondary age students. Depending on the session, you may work one-to-one or with a group of students. University of Edinburgh students can also enquire about becoming a mentor.
