    This is probably an abuse of the forum, sorry.

    I was wondering though if anyone here knew ways of getting involved with teaching school children mathematics like once or twice a week? I'm happy doing it for free and any age range really. I don't really want to go through some long, drawn out process of application though, I just want something I can get involved with very quickly (like this coming week). Happy to teach pure maths and statistics (but not mechanics).

    (my credentials are A in Maths + Further Maths A-levels, Distinction in AEA Maths, 1s in STEP I and II, First Class Honours in BSc Maths and Economics at LSE and currently doing an MSc in Financial Maths)

    Probably ask at a citizens advice bureau or similar, or even the local council? Not sure really, nit you'll need a crb clearance for a start!

    Contact the head of maths at local schools. Have a CV ready that you can email after you have spoken to them. They will have students who did poorly in January AS exams that could benefit from extra support. They may appreciate an extra pair of hands in GCSE classes for example to help enthusiastic C/D borderline students (can you remember and explain C/D topics to someone who struggles with maths?)You will need a CRB check before you can work with kids at any age that they will organise and pay for.
