1,000 HOURS OF
FREE TUITION FOR
Free Online Tutoring For NHS Hospital Workers' Children During COVID-19 School Closures
We are facing an unprecedented health crisis, and our NHS hospital workers are on the front line. We want to do everything we can to support them.
Titanium Tutors has asked all of its tutors and clients to move their lessons online during the coronavirus outbreak wherever possible. Over 99% of our lessons are now taking place digitally.
We now want to help up to 200 NHS hospital worker families over the next 2 months to access free online tutoring. This extra support will give them the time to focus their attention where the country urgently needs it, or at least to rest after a long shift.
Each NHS hospital worker may apply for up to 15 hours of free online tutoring from one of our volunteer tutors in any subject we offer. Each successful family will be eligible for a total of 5 free hours of tutoring per child, up to a maximum of 3 children. Larger families can decide to group their children so that every child can benefit.
The allocation of hours may be spread out according to the preferences and availability of the tutor and the family. For example, for each child 1 hour per week for 5 weeks could be arranged, or alternatively 1 hour per day for 5 days where a more intensive approach suits better. If further lessons are required they will be offered at a heavily discounted rate whilst schools remain closed.
We aim to help up to 100 families in April and a further 100 in May, subject to the availability of our volunteer tutors. Spaces will be allocated on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.
Tutors looking to participate in the scheme should follow the usual tutor application process on our site. If accepted onto our books, you will have access to details of each individual assignment in the scheme via our online portal and will be able to register interest there too.
NHS hospital workers should follow these steps:
Give us a ring on 020 7164 6455 for a 5-10 minute discussion about your children's requirements.
After the call we will ask you to send us an email from your NHS email address to verify your identity.
We will contact suitable tutors and choose the ones who are the best fit for your children's needs.
All volunteers will be drawn from tutors on our books, and are therefore subject to our highly selective assessment process.
Once we have selected a tutor for each of your participating children, we will send you their academic and teaching background and ask you if you would like to proceed.
Once we have your approval to proceed, we will put you in touch with your allocated tutor(s) so that online lessons can commence straight away. You or a designated family member or friend can liaise directly with the tutor(s) to arrange each session.
You will receive a report after each session detailing the progress of your children and what was covered in the lesson.
