Founded at Imperial in 1975, the Pimlico Connection has been placing Imperial students into local schools. The College's Outreach office are looking for students to volunteer as tutors, lending their knowledge and expertise to help and support hundreds of children in their studies in the schools surrounding our campuses. You can inspire local children to succeed and reach their academic potential to become the next generation of STEM students.
The programme runs October to December or January to March with tutors volunteering between 1-3 hours of their time. It is usually on a Wednesday afternoon to fit around your studies, however there are some Saturday morning and Tuesday slots available. You could tutor with primary school students all the way up to senior year to help them achieve in STEM subjects.
There are a variety of training opportunities to help you through your tutoring year. A briefing and induction session will tell you all the important tutoring information including how to engage students and what to do in difficult situations. It's a hugely interactive workshop and very beneficial.
Applications for tutors are for 2018/19 are open now through accessing this link and remain open until 19th October. More information on the Pimlico Connection is available on the Outreach Office's website
