Become a Tutor {Mandela Day} 34 / 67 ways to change the world

OK so I took a little break from it, but as promised on Mandela Day 2013 (19.07.13), this is part of my series on their 67 suggested ways of changing the world. This one comes under the category of 'Become an Educator':

34. Offer to provide tutoring in a school subject you are good at.

I tutor out of school hours (I am a teacher) to earn some extra money, but it had not really occurred to me to also provide free tuition as a way of doing charity. I don't know why- it makes total sense to! Often, the children who need that extra time, attention and input the most are the ones who do not have the resources at their disposal to access it. 

So whether you are a teacher, or are just specialised in a subject (have an A-level/ college certificate/  university degree / studying at university / have a practical skill), please consider passing on your knowledge and skills to those who need it most, but cannot afford it.
