Volunteers’ Week always lands at a positive time of year for us as it coincides with exam season, when we really see the impact that tutors have had on the confidence levels of their students. It’s great to hear stories from the students after their exams telling us that the exact topic they had covered in revision came up on the exam paper, or that they felt so much more confident tackling the essay questions after working through essay structures with their tutor. Volunteers’ Week gives us the perfect platform to pass this feedback and thanks on to our wonderful volunteer tutor community.

And our community truly is wonderful.

The support, dedication and commitment each and every one of our tutors shows never fails to astound us. For example, we now have six tutors who have each given over 100 hours of their time to hold tutorials with students across London and the West Midlands in subjects such as English, Chemistry and Maths! This is an absolutely phenomenal statistic and everyone at The Access Project is extremely grateful to these six tutors for their overwhelming support.

Thanks to #toptutors and 100-hour stars Bishnu and Rob in the West Midlands and Mike, Robert, Isabel and Ivan in London.

Just how long is 100 hours?

We were so mind-blown with this achievement that we thought we would put it into perspective and take a look at just how long 100 hours really is.

So what did we find out? Well, did you know that apparently 100 hours is the same amount of time it would take to make 506,100 cups of coffee, fly around the world 2.5 times or solve 24,500 Rubik’s cubes!* We think tutoring a GCSE or A Level student with us is a much better use of your time!
