University focuses on tutor Eliane - 21st May 2021 We’re delighted that one of our partners, the University of Manchester, is showcasing the work of one of their students who tutors with us. In their latest article, the University focuses on how their students, working with Tutor Trust and the National Tutoring Programme, are working to close the attainment gap for disadvantaged young people during the pandemic and lockdown. The article features Eliane Roll, a second-year English Literature and French student, who has been working with Tutor Trust since starting university in 2019. In the article Eliane reflects on her time as a tutor supporting students with their English writing and language skills at Tutor Trust partner school, the Co-op Academy in Swinton. She also talks about the importance of the tutor being an adult that tutees can rely on. Eliane also talks about how, with lockdown and the move to online tutoring, there have been more opportunities to celebrate success with her students. She adds: “With the new safeguarding measures that came in, you have to see an adult at the beginning and end of each session. It’s lovely because you get to say to them ‘your child has done brilliantly today’, and the parents are really thankful.” Read the full article on the University of Manchester website.
