English Tuition.

Headway Tutors can provide tailored English tuition delivered by experienced and qualified teachers who are experts in their field. Online English tuition or home tuition options are available, whatever works best for your family.

At every stage of your child’s education, their mastery of English underpins their learning across the curriculum. In order to achieve their full potential, they must first become confident in reading and writing. Fluent reading, strong comprehension skills and a love of reading for pleasure are vital tools for learning and strong markers of success in later life. Furthermore, an ability to write for a range of audiences and purposes is not only essential for education but a highly desirable skill which can be utilised in many careers.

At Headway, we offer a range of services to suit all circumstances and tutoring is adapted carefully to fit the needs of each pupil. Our English tuition can help if your child has some specific gaps in their learning. However, if English is already a strength of theirs, our English tutoring can boost your child’s progress even when they are achieving well at school.

Types of English Tuition

Headway tutors can work with your child at any stage of their education. Our English tutors will support your child to achieve the very best from the beginning of their learning journey at Primary school through to taking their important milestone examinations.

11+ English Tuition and 11+ Mock Exam

It is important to note that many aspects of the 11+ exams are not included in the primary curriculum and that children may find these tests different to those routinely used within the primary curriculum. Our English 11+ tuition will ensure that your child is fully prepared both in terms of knowledge and exam preparation. You may wish your child to take the Maths and English tuition or solely concentrate on one aspect of this. We work closely with Independent Schools so that we are well placed to help your child succeed in their applications.

Some children can find that the leap from GCSE to A level is quite a challenge. If you choose to work with Headway tutors, our specialist English A level tuition will support your child through this new and more independent stage of their education. As well as providing excellent tuition for their specific exam board our tutors will guide your child into new study skills which will be required to complete the course and achieve their potential. These skills will be invaluable for any further tertiary Education. We can provide you with an AQA English tutor, an OCR English tutor, an Edexcel English tutor, an IB English tutor, WJEC English Tutor or a SQA Higher English tutor.

Our experienced specialist teachers ensure that our GCSE English tuition fully prepares your child in the course material for their specific exam board. With careful monitoring and assessment throughout, our GCSE English tuition will make sure that when exam time comes, your child is equipped with the tools to succeed.

Clare has been an outstanding A level psychology tutor for my daughter who was negatively affected by last year's algorithm results.Clare's knowledge was taken as read, so the real value she brought was sharing very valuable techniques and perhaps even more importantly the confidence and belief she instilled.Oh and my daughter loved working with her! Thank you Clare

Fearghal is brilliant! I wish all teachers were like this. His lessons are so much fun but he’s very astute and doesn’t leave kids behind.

She has been a great teacher for Betsy, organised, on time, patient. She really is good at explaining and makes it all clear. Highly recommended.
Jade’s teaching style inspired my son to do better. She quickly identified gaps in his knowledge and worked systematically with him, always going above and beyond. Her high energy remained intact during their remote sessions too - within months he felt more confident and started taking pride in his work. Facing new math challenges became fun and his mid-year performance review jumped to above expectations for Y5. Jade is amazing and we, as a family, highly recommend her.

Rosie is so warm and friendly, she always makes learning how to cook new things fun and easy for my girls. We really liked how she incorporated seasonal cooking and the history, or origin, of certain recipes into each lesson!

Sarah was a brilliant 11+ tutor for my daughter. She is kind and gently encouraging and makes lessons challenging and enjoyable. Sarah was also flexible about accommodating my requests to cover specific topics /areas, and always put together well-thought-through lesson plans with excellent and interesting resources. My daughter felt a real bond with Sarah and looked forward to the tutoring sessions every week. She was genuinely sad when they ended.

Molly not only immediately connected with both my daughters, but made each tutoring session fun and engaging! She was also wonderful at keeping us informed of their progress and tailoring sessions to meet each of their needs. Honesty, using Headway Tutors has been the best decision we ever made and both our girls are now confident in Maths and 11+ ready!

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.
