What service do you require?

While 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.


Our in-home tuition option is still our most popular service. Our students look forward to their weekly individually tailored sessions.

How it works?

We conduct an initial free assessment based on phone or Zoom conversations, school reports and a review of students’ work.
We then carefully select the correct tutor for you.

Where does the tutoring happen?

All tuition is delivered in the comfort of your home. We also offer online tuition; this is a very popular option and we use the best software available.

How do we select our tutors?

All our tutors are carefully selected and interviewed by our team. We have a three-step interview process:

1) The TutorCruncher biography and résumés are discussed over the phone (with all tutors).

2) Face to face interview where all interviewees are given a variety of scenarios so we can assess how they teach.

  • Security and reference checks completed (all our tutors have a DBS)
  • Qualification check
  • Safeguarding Checks

3) Final meeting with the prospective tutor where Headway’s strict code of conduct is discussed and signed before any work begins with one of our families.


Our weekly group sessions are a great way to give your child a focused and collaborative approach to their 11+ journey.

Why choose group tuition?
  • Collaborative learning as carried out at school
  • School lesson structure

From one term to a full academic year, let Headway’s, professional, reliable, homeschool tutors support your child with their at-home learning.

Our approach

At Headway, we feel it is important to embrace a varied approach to education. So if you’ve decided home schooling is right for your child, we’re here to ensure it’s as productive and effective as any of the top schools.

Trusted framework

We offer a framework of the study, with exercises, lessons and advice when needed from tutors without interfering with the choice that the parent has made. We also provide evidence, should it be required, of the work and progress of these children to satisfy local authority enquiries.

Dedicated and knowledgeable tutors

A team of dedicated full-time tutors will provide one to one tuition for your child across the curriculum, in an immersive, fun and highly engaging atmosphere. In addition to the academics, we can also tailor a programme of cultural, sporting and artistic experiences for your child.

Our experienced, discreet, professional tutors can live in, or nearby, or can travel with you in order to ensure continuity of education for your child.
