Box4Life plans free maths and english tuition

Free Maths and English

Would you be interested in free maths and english tuition and homework support for any 11-18 year olds in your family who are not doing as well in school as you would like?

If so, please reply to this email by telling us:

1. their age:
2. gender:
3. whether they need help in maths, or english, or both:
4. at which level: GCSE or A Level:

Please answer each question in your reply.

We are applying for a grant to deliver this tuition, by suitably qualified and experienced teachers, but before we apply we need to know the potential numbers.

The service will also be designed to help young people who are becoming de-motivated or disengaged with studying generally, or who need help in raising their aspirations about getting a job. This could include helping them to present themselves to employers, filling out application forms etc.

The grant we are applying for is linked to sport, so it can ONLY be given to young people who attend our non-contact boxing sessions - which will also be free.

We plan to offer this service on Tuesdays at 5pm (for 5.30 start) pm at Cann Hall Baptist Church, Cann Hall Rd, so it can run into our 6.30 - 8.30 training sessions.

The grant programme is called Sporteducate and is designed by one of our funders, The Sported Foundation, in partnership with Deutsche Bank. Sporteducate aims to equip young people at risk of failing in their studies with the tools they need to succeed in progressing to further education, employment or training.

If we are successful in winning this grant the project could begin in July.

Please let us know if you are interested,
