Who we are…
The VTO uses education as a means to improve children’s lives, and utilise tutoring as an effective mechanism for adults to help children learn through one–to–one interaction away from the classroom. We recruit, train, place, resource and support volunteer tutors to give one-to-one educational support and guidance to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
This is the story of Brandon, an eleven-year-old who came to one of our Homework Groups for help with his homework.
Take a look at his story and find out how powerful one-to-one tuition can be in improving a child’s performance at school and overall confidence, through an interview with his tutor Michelle. Play the video above to hear about their experiences.
It’s quick and easy to set up a monthly donation to support our children.
