private tuition to all
Here at Figtree we aspire to take the benefits of private tuition to as many children as possible. Our agency came into life through our work with the educational charity One Degree, and through our continued collaboration we aim to take our teaching further.
Founded in 2009, One Degree empowers students from disadvantaged backgrounds through academic mentoring. The charity relies on support from a network of volunteers, and we’re proud to play our part.
Our tutors are encouraged and supported to volunteer with One Degree, tutoring GCSE students in English and Maths. Whether as a one-off or as part of an ongoing programme, mentors are building self-belief and inspiring confidence – making this an invaluable experience for both the pupils and our tutors.
