“The best feeling in the world” – William’s student volunteering story

William Eva is a Chemistry student at Warwick University. With a profound passion for teaching and a desire to make a difference, William has logged an impressive 136 hours as a volunteer tutor at The Access Project, impacting the lives of two aspiring students.

For William, the decision to join The Access Project served a dual purpose – building teaching experience and making a meaningful impact on the lives of those eager to learn and grow.

William said: “I joined The Access Project to build experience in teaching but also try and make a difference for the people who want to learn and better themselves.”

As a volunteer tutor, William has experienced the joy that comes from witnessing the positive changes in his students. He added: “Knowing you are making a difference to a young person that wants to do well and will work really hard for themselves, then seeing the help you have given is the best feeling in the world.” William’s words resonate with the essence of volunteering – the fulfilment felt from contributing to the success of others.

One of the most rewarding aspects of William’s tutoring journey is seeing the smile that lights up a student’s face when a challenging concept finally clicks. These small victories are the building blocks of academic progress, and William recognises their significance.

He said: “One of the best parts is having the ‘ohh’ moment or the smile when you explain a concept and it finally clicks”.

In a world where education can be a powerful catalyst for change, volunteers like William exemplify the transformative impact that individuals can have on the lives of others.
