Welcome to
Headway Tutors.

Headway Tutors was started by two teachers and continues to provide highly skilled teachers and tutors to families both nationally and internationally. Using its own purpose-built progress tracking software POGO we can be sure that each lesson with one of our dedicated professionals brings your child one step closer to their learning goals.

Headway Tutors has been providing face to face and online tuition for 6 years. Whatever your request we can find the perfect tutor to suit your family’s needs.

We have a range of services to suit all budgets and requirements. These are delivered by carefully selected and fully DBS checked educators who have a wealth of experience behind them as well as the full support of the Headway team.

Select one of the services to learn more, or contact us directly to speak to one of the team.

online_iconWhile many families still prefer face-to-face tutoring, recent changes in how schools have been delivering their lessons have converted many to online tutoring.

Benefits include:

  • A wider range of tutors to choose from as there are no geographical constraints.
  • Lower costs as tutors do not need to travel.
  • The computer-based tutoring session may appeal to some children rather than sitting at a table completing worksheets.
  • We use the latest technology to ensure full interaction between student and tutor.
  • Work is set, in accordance with your child’s needs and learning goals – in the same way as with a home tutor.
  • You can opt to have a mix of home and online sessions – everything/anything is possible.


Headway Tutors was conceived in one school and we now work very closely with a number of educational establishments – so close in fact that both of Headway’s directors are still in the classroom every day!

We are able to provide a range of services to schools, including one-to-one tutoring sessions either during the school day, out of term-time, or evenings and weekends.

We are pleased to be able to offer our schools’ support services on-site or even at the student’s home if that is more beneficial.

Headway Tutors has the tools, experience and staff to help bridge any gap between one-to-one support and a child’s school journey.

We work with some schools to provide home tuition over holiday periods to provide continuity. We also provide home schooling for young people who are, for whatever reason, unable to attend school in person.

Please get in touch to discuss how we can work with you and your school.

Progress Tracking

What is POGO Progress?

Pogo Progress is designed to help with your understanding of your child’s learning and to increase a student’s level of engagement with their tutoring. It will give you greater confidence in your tutor’s curriculum knowledge and provide you with consistent updates. This means no more waiting until parents’ evenings to find areas of strength and areas with which to assist your child.

How does it raise standards?

All our tutors plan and deliver sessions based upon the curriculum statements. This gives us complete confidence that your child’s goals are being met. The tutors have access to recommended resources that accompany the curriculum statements.

What does this mean for us and you?

Headway’s tutors can now raise standards and deliver high-quality and relevant lessons for your child’s individual goals. POGO’s comprehensive curriculum for each year group and subject provides clear learning objectives, tailored to Headway Tutors and is in line with the National Curriculum.

More about Headway Tutors

Meet Chris

An avid traveller and lover of languages, Chris’s passion for teaching was born in South America. Working as a TEFL teacher in Costa Rica and then Brazil, it didn’t take him long to realise the profound impact that individualised teaching could have on helping others.

Returning to the UK, he studied education at St Mary’s University which propelled him into the classroom. With over 8 years of teaching experience, Chris has worked at two very high achieving schools in West London.

What Chris has to say:
The memories of my time in South America have always stuck with me. I was blown away by the progress a student could make in a personal session, and it made me want to bring that to as many people as possible.

Headway Tutors

Our tutor will come to your home and teach according to the goals established at the consultation. Some students decide to have homework help and a recap of concepts taught in school, others work on missed building blocks. Most of our parents decide to have a combination of the two. After each session our tutors offer a short period of time to recap to the parent what has been taught in that lesson, explain any homework and then advise on how you can offer further support. Each tutor reports on our online database what was taught in the lesson. This informs us at Headway what is being covered and to ensure the personal student plan and targets are being achieved. With this information the tutor and the senior leaders, who both have many years of teaching in a leading West London prep school, will create an end of term report that celebrates progress and provides the next steps for your child’s future learning. We offer this to all students, including: EYFS, KS1, KS2, 11+ and KS3. At Headway we use a variety of resources to fully engage with and appeal to all learning styles. All of our students also have access to our online Maths and English training programme, where you too can track your child’s progress. Our local knowledge of all of West London’s secondary schools makes Headway a great choice for assisting your child with their 11+ exams. All our passionate and dedicated tutors are fully DBS checked.

Jade has worked with my daughter over her 11+ exams and beyond. I couldn’t rate her highly enough. My daughter is a worrier and has moved from struggling to confident and is well within the expected level for her age, under jades tutorship. Jade genuinely has a passion for maths and it comes through in all she does. Can I give her a 10 out five stars ⭐️?

My daughter has been working with Anthony for almost two months now. He is very flexible in terms of timings and has helped her enormously with her maths. Her confidence has grown and she is better placed to take her GCSE this coming summer (whatever form it may take!!)

We searched for support for our late summer born boys and applied to Headway Tutors this year. Thanks to them we met a very good teacher. Katie is a knowledgable teacher who is customizing her teaching style according to child's needs and approach to learning. She's working with tangible targets for each session and updating them according to child's needs. She's very creative and motivating all through the sessions.

Rebecca is a superb tutor. If only you could clone her. She’s the perfect mix of supporting and pushing, teaching and challenging. It’s obvious she genuinely loves teaching. I’ve also been impressed with Headway Tutors. Communication is consistent and I feel valued.

Exceeded my expectations! I was not sure what to expect with a live virtual classroom and it is well set up, but for it to be successful, it needs a teacher show can effectively get kids engaged in the session. To say Brigid has been able to get my daughter involved and engaged is an understatement. Her teaching style is enthusiastic and the energy transfers to my daughter during the lesson. I hope there is a way to continue lessons once my daughter's school re-opens.
