“Hannah has been amazing. Always prepared, always on time. Plans interesting and valuable lessons. Listens and is responsive to what myself and the other mother ask her to cover with the children. My child finds her approachable and totally respects her. She is learning and feeling confident with what they cover. As two working parents during Civid lockdown ensuring our daughter is learning was a worry but between Hannah lessons and what we can do we feel calmer about her schooling. We are extremely grateful to her.”

Kate, London

“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!”

Ashley, London

“Georgina has really helped our son gain confidence and prepare for 12+ exams .Georgina has helped “fill in gaps” from a 2020 year 6 and bridge transition to year 7-she is flexible, well prepared and we would definitely recommend her!”

Fiona, London

“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 ⭐️?”

Brigid

“I really think our Headway tutor, Brigid, is doing such a wonderful job. I’m so impressed by the amount of information she gets through, the quality of the lessons/teaching and the way she motivates and supports the group during the online classes. Big thank you to Brigid and the team for running such fantastic sessions.”

Charlotte, London

Hannah

“Hannah is an excellent tutor. She’s built a fabulous relationship with Libby, who was very reluctant to interact online! Libby loves her lessons, she’s growing in confidence every week. The tutoring sessions are great fun, interactive, well planned and tailored to the needs of the kids. Hannah has made the effort to align the sessions with school timetables (which are fluctuating given the current situation). We’re so lucky to have found Hannah as a tutor and are delighted she’ll be starting at my daughters school in the autumn.”

Claire, London

“We were delighted to have Amee from Headway tutors who helped our son Will making a transition from state to private school. She has a lovely nature she is enthusiastic and really motivated him. She is engaging and encouraged Will to push himself and he has achieved a massive improvement in his maths skills. You can tell she loves her job she’s an excellent Teacher and I would definitely highly
recommend her.”

Verity, London

“We have been delighted with our daughter’s progress with her tutor Ross. She has grown in confidence and made significant improvements between year 5 and 6, and again this year building on her Sats and transition to secondary school. Can’t recommend highly enough.”

Maxine, London

See what our clients are saying about Headway…

“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.”

Sinem, London

“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.”

Paul, London

“I am absolutely delighted by the live tutoring classes offered by Headway. We joined the live classroom sessions during lockdown and my daughter has thoroughly enjoyed every class. Hannah gets everyone involved and perfectly balances learning, discussion and fun. We will be continuing with Headway without question and have no hesitation in highly recommending to others.”

Jonathan, London

“We were fortunate to find Headway Tutors for Maths revision and consolidation over the summer. Edward was very efficient and personable. He took care to understand our requirements and kept us in the loop with our daughter’s progress throughout. She found her one-to-one lessons with him engaging, rewarding and fun.. just like learning should be. Thank you!”

Urooj, London

“We couldn’t be happier with our children’s progress thanks to Headway Tutors who were able to find the best tutors to get our daughter ready for the secondary school exams and our son helped through his GCSE years.
Professional, available, polite and helpful.”

Agnieszka, London

“We sought Headway Tutors help last year. We had just moved my son into Reception Year mid-year from abroad. My son needed support with his Set 1 phonics and special friend recognition, letter and number formation and basic cvc word building exercises. We saw his reading progress remarkably as he moved from one reading level to the next until he reached the targets set for Reception Year. As for his writing, he went from writing a couple of letters from every word to full sentences independently. The tutors’ methods helped my son gain confidence and set him on the right path for reading and writing. He enjoyed playing educational games with the tutors and looked forward to the tutoring sessions. We highly recommend Headway Tutors.”

Zeina, London

“It was great tutoring for 11+, I really found the different with my daughter before we start with headway and after, it’s extremely great.”

Faten, London

“We have had a great experience with Headway. The tutor is firm but fair and we really wish we’d found them earlier.”

Alice, London

“We used Headway Tutors to provide support in the run up to 10+ exams. Being a teacher myself I knew exactly what I wanted from a tutor and was very impressed with their service.”

Maria, London

“I have tried different tutors in the past for my son and I wish I had found Headway Tutors sooner. By far the best.
Practically everything you and your child needs for the eleven plus and more.
There is advice on hand, support and information regarding choosing the right school. Sophie has been amazing, she has a great nack of making learning fun in small groups which was a massive confidence boost for my son.
He attended tuition in the lead up to the eleven plus exams and it’s truly been a godsend.
Thank you, Ross and Sophie and all the team at Headway Tutors.”

Rae Rae, London

“We have used Ross from Headway Tutors for about 2 years – he has been exceptional. Ross delivered excellent lessons tailored to the specific needs of our son. He is aspirational, fair, consistent and kind. I recognise that children have different needs and different parent expectations so I have recommended Headway Tutors to friends cautiously so that they can make up their own minds as to the suitability of their services. My friends have all engaged with the Headway team and are delighted with their service. Personally, I have appreciated our relationship with Ross, he is open& frank about our son’s progress – and gave me a clear picture of his strengths and weaknesses. I highly recommend their professional approach.”

Liz, London

“We couldn’t be happier with the tuition we have received. Our son has been taught effective ways of working in maths and literacy and has enjoyed being stretched and challenged. We have seen his confidence increase, his grades improve and he has passed the entrance exams to his favoured secondary schools.”

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.
