Community Mobilisation

To expand our movement and accelerate progress towards our vision, we are launching Community Mobilisation to drive systemic change and scale our impact.

What is the Tutoring Programme?

The Tutoring Programme is an initiative designed to provide an opportunity for passionate changemakers like yourself to be part of the education recovery. By working with schools from B40 communities, you will gain first-hand experience and develop deeper understanding while addressing the impacts of COVID-19 school closures on students’ learning.

Many students have lost significant amounts of instructional time and will require remedial instruction to get back on track as teachers alone may not have the capacity to provide individualised student support. In this pilot phase, TFM aims to support student remediation by recruiting, onboarding and supporting passionate and credible volunteer tutors. Together with your contribution in this movement, TFM aims to reach students from high-need communities through remediation support to close learning gaps as a result of the pandemic.

Our Theory Of Change

  • Significant learning disruptions have been identified due to the prolonged COVID-19 school closures.

  • Volunteer Tutors will be recruited and onboarded to support student remedial instruction.

  • High-need schools will be provided the opportunity to recapture learning loss, reduce and revert the negative impacts of the pandemic on Malaysian education.

  • Learning loss and inequity problems are aimed to be addressed, tackled and solved to reach educational recovery.

Through TFM’s Tutoring Programme, I get to understand faster as my tutor teaches me in a very fun way that makes it easier for me to grasp the knowledge. I was also able to get fast response as the tutoring session is a very detailed session.

I realised that some students are more confident when they have one-to-one or small group learning experience. Tutoring session allows students to express themselves, learning in their full capacity and use their full potential without feeling like they are in a competition.
