Our Services

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 of online tutoring
  • 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.


Educators Alongside Schools

Our relationship with schools

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. Our schools’ support services can be on-site or even at the student’s home if that is more beneficial.

Why your school should work with headway tutors

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. As an educator we also provide homeschooling 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.

In-Home & Online Tutoring 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.

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.

We are very happy with Sarah. Elliot really enjoys their time together and is learning and consolidating a lot. Especially as it is just 1 hr a week. He looks forward to their ‘lessons’. Thank you Sarah

Karl was an amazing tutor. He was tasked with helping me learn close to the whole A Level course in close to under 2 months, with myself having last learnt physics at GCSE two years ago and not reviewing it again since. He had a great approach with ensuring that I was able to learn and cover all the key concepts in a way that made logical sense, and was great at going above and beyond in showing all the elements to help me understand how to derive equations and how they linked together. For someone who really disliked physics, he made learning it very enjoyable with his visible passion and great personality - which definitely improved the whole experience. He was also great at providing additional resources in order for me to be able to recap all that was taught. I was able to perform greatly in the physics section for my medical university entry exam and I can definitely say that Karl's help had a great significance in that. I would definitely recommend him to any students studying physics.

Kate is a very experienced tutor who has managed to bring out the best in my sometimes shy and reluctant son. She really tries to engage at his level and find things that will interest him as well as challenge him during his 11+ preparation . I would definitely recommend Kate for any parent considering senior school entrance or 11+ prep.

Laura has already made a difference to our Spanish grades (her first ever A’s!) and enjoyment of learning (which was a battle before). We are very happy with Laura!

My daughter is getting along well with her tutor and she is listening to what he said. As parents, we like Edward give homework after each lesson so that we know what has been taught and what are learning objectives for her to reach. We feel that Edward know well enough in terms of how to tailor the curriculum to provide a suitable level of 11+ preparation. Throughout this year's weekly tutoring, we think Edward is getting to know my daughter well, especially knowing how to leverage her strength when analysing new problems to make up for her other weaknesses shown at a variety stages of her learning development. In future, we hope that Edward can play a bigger role to help 11+ prep., We also hope to work closely with Edward together.

I have been a tutor with Headway for a while now and can honestly say the company is a joy to work for.Tutors are matched with students and every effort is made to facilitate a positive relationship between the two! Tutors are always given loads of information about the student and their academic goals but also about their individual needs and hopes as they progress. Efforts are made to include families and to involve them in the learning process and communication is available and encouraging 24/7. It is this holistic approach that makes Headway stand out. I feel very lucky to be part of the team!

Fantastic agency to work with, employing really collaborative, dedicated tutors who genuinely care about helping their students succeed. As a tutor, I have always felt fully supported by the agency and by Chris and Clare in particular, whom I have interacted the most with. Similarly their clients (that is to say my students and their families) have all been wonderful and lovely to work with. I quite simply cannot recommend Headway Tutors enough.

I have been working for Headway tutors for over a year now and I have nothing but praise for the way Chris and Clare run this organisation; they are professional, caring and extremely dedicated to providing the best experience possible for their staff and clients alike. In the last year I have been given numerous pupils and have grown to have great relationships with each of my pupils and their families thanks to the facilitation from Chris and Clare. Working for Headway Tutors has allowed my tutoring work to grow exponentially and I am very grateful to them for this opportunity.
