Looking for help with homework, research, and other school activities?  TutorHunt matches students and tutors in various subjects in the United Kingdom.  

If you tutor outside the UK, you will also find this site helpful in learning tips and techniques and lesson plans for your work.

Aside from tutoring, you can also use this site to find information on research projects here.


Tech for Teachers: How-To for the Classroom

Logo My Teaching Degree

"Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow"... Advances in educational technology have changed the way educators teach and shaped the way children learn. As new products continue to be introduced at a rapid pace, teachers are becoming more reliant on it to engage learners and keep them hooked.  For technology to be effective there has to be quality content. Teachers need resources that help them utilize technology as a medium for their instruction instead of as the focus, or even worse- a distraction.

We've put together more than 150 resources for educators, including popular and up-and-coming classroom technology tools, online resources and apps.  Get started learning about them here!

Computer-Based Math Education

Logo CBM

computerbasedmath.org is a project to build a completely new math curriculum with computer-based computation at its heart—alongside a campaign to refocus math education away from historical hand-calculating techniques and toward relevant and conceptually interesting topics.

In collaboration with UNICEF, this year's summit kick-starts global action on math education and serves as a catalyst for major change. By bringing together leaders from industry, technology,education, and government from a range of countries, we will address the question of how to deliver improved life chances worldwide by collaborating on a fundamental rethink of the math curriculum. Join us and help map out a definitive pathforward for fundamental math education reform to help students around the globe to flourish in the twenty-first century.

Location: UNICEF Headquarters in New York City

STEM and Gender: Internships and Research



 Logo True Child


With support from the Motorola Solutions Foundation and guidance from NAPE, EdLab, and Sally Ride Science, two excellent research and tutorial resources are available: a  white paper report on femininity and STEM, along with an online research clearinghouse that summarizes the key studies in this area.
 Educator internships also available.

Studies show that girls do as well or better in STEM than their male counterparts, right up until late adolescence and early teens – the “gender intensification” period, when attention to traditional feminine norms accelerates, and belief in them solidifies. This can be particularly so for girls in low-income communities, where feminine ideals are often particularly narrow, and penalties for transgressing them harsh.


Researchers and theorists are beginning to suspect that STEM drop-offs may be directly linked to internalizing more narrow feminine norms as girls age: specifically, the idea that being feminine, and being good at things like technology or engineering, are just mutually incompatible.  Our field has done a great job of addressing external and interpersonal barriers to STEM achievement, like lack of role models, chilly classroom climate, teacher bias, and stereotype threat.  Yet it may be that girls’ own belief systems are an overlooked and understudied part of crafting more effective solutions.


Khan Academy to Change Education?

In 2004 Sal Khan agreed to tutor his cousin in algebra – she lived in another state so they did it online and he posted the tutorials on YouTube.  Others began finding the videos, watching them and reached out to Sal to praise and thank him.  He branched out into other subjects and eventually left his job as a hedge fund analyst to form Khan Academy which has received funding from both the Gates Foundation and Google.  Currently Sal’s lessons reach over 4 million students monthly, worldwide.

Khan Academy essentially ‘flips the classroom’ – students do most of the work at home using the video lessons and then focus on practicing the concepts in school which also allows for increased one on one support from their teachers.  The teachers also have access to a ‘teacher dashboard’ that lets them track their students’ progress through the modules and determine where additional help is needed.

Preliminary studies have shown improvements in student grades and suggest a potential change in education.  One of the unique aspects of the Khan Academy is that they are the first to make videos and then measure and quantify the results.
