    I am planning on going to Nottingham Trent University in October 2011, and part-time tutoring is something I've always, kind of wanted to do. I enjoy helping people learn and feel that it is very rewarding seeing someone who was struggling, achieving success.

    If I could tutor students, it would be A-level Psychology as it is my strongest subject, and the subject I enjoy the most and I would say I have a passion for this subject.

    I would tutor students for free as I believe that I could really assist them and a lot of students do not have the financial resources to obtain a good tutor. I would relish the experience also. However, I would only be available to teach a few hours per week.

    Do you know if I would be able to do something of the sort whilst at University?
    I would honestly love to.

    I do tutoring at the moment at College (coincidentally I'm also going to NTU, what are you planning on studying?). If you plan on tutoring A-level, I think NTU do a mentoring scheme which is similar (it may also be paid), if not no reason why you can't get in contact with local colleges. When I signed on to do tutoring (or 'mentoring', as my college calls it. I still do the same thing and teach students and whatnot) I had to go through a CRB check and do some 'training' to get us there. So I dunno what the colleges there will say, a person who's willing to tutor for free would seem good though, but I would imagine you would have to go through some paperwork etc. Honestly, I don't see why you couldn't do it. Looks great on a CV and it's great helping people out good luck with it if you decide to do it.

    Alternatively, NTU may have a similar programme helping out fellow students while your in your second/third year. Hope that helps.
