“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”

“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.”
“We have had a great experience with Headway. The tutor is firm but fair and we really wish we’d found them earlier.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“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.”
“My twin boys were very sport driven and have always found it hard to keep up academically, after the first 3 weeks of them working with Headway tutors they’ve grown in confidence and don’t worry about their homework anymore.”

“Clemmy is wonderful. She has a brilliant way with my daughter – she teaches beautifully and clearly whilst inspiring and reassuring throughout.”
“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
“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.”
“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.”
“Adam managed to make a book my son was hating interesting. For a child that hates to be taught my son enjoyed his lessons which was fantastic!”
“Brigid has tuned in very quickly to Kristin’s learning style and has been willing to adapt her teaching methods to suit. I can tell that Kristin has a lot of fun in her classes with Brigid and is enjoying the one to one interaction and being able to work at a pace and in a style that suits her. Kristin can find it hard to concentrate and is easily distracted but Brigid’s willingness to adapt and find ways to keep Kristin on board is exactly what we were looking for. We are confident that with Brigid’s energy and expertise Kristin will continue to grow in confidence and feel proud of what she is achieving. Thank you Brigid for making such a strong start with Kristin.”
“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!!).”
“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.”
“Sara is a joy to work with. She has inspired our son to whole new levels and he looks forward greatly to her sessions.”
“Khush has helped my daughter to understand and enjoy maths and given her greater confidence!”
“Grace really enjoys Connor’s classes – he is very friendly and approachable, explaining tasks/objectives clearly so that it’s easy to follow the class and actively participate. “I like everything” – Grace, Year 2″
“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.”
