Tutors & Futures is an elite tuition company with a reputation for providing the highest quality of service.
Many families don't understand the parameters of home education and can do with a little bit of support at the start of their journey to set them off in the right direction. We offer an explanatory Zoom call and provide a personalised report which provides details about home education.
Our online classes allow learners to progress at their own pace, succeed in exams, and develop friendships with fellow students. Working in a welcoming learning environment allows home educated students to flourish outside mainstream education.
Residential tuition positions, whether live-in or out, allow the tutor to work in close proximity to the family throughout the course of the placement. We have experience of working with staff within a household to ensure an efficient and bespoke service.
We work with elite junior athletes across the globe to support their academic performance and ensure they can balance their time effectively. The students can be at school or they can be home educated, but either way we schedule their education to maximise performance.
Our reviews are testament to the rigorous approach we employ with every family.
If there were Home Ed awards then Patrick would get one! He has worked with my son in multiple subjects and shown great skill in his approach. He really cares about the wellbeing of his students. I have no hesitation in recommending Patrick.
We came to Tutors & Futures as private candidates looking for help to get a Centre Assessed Grade during 2020's Covid-induced exam chaos. The situation has been particularly difficult for those who have studied independently, but from the moment we made contact everything was incredibly clear and smooth. All the worry and stress was minimised and I am deeply appreciative of all they did for my son.
We took our daughter out of school as she is a gymnast competing on the international stage. Tutors & Futures managed her schedule effectively to ensure that her long training hours didn't negatively affect her academic performance. The service was comprehensive in nature, offering advice on nutrition, training, and study, and working in collaboration with her coaches.
Our daughter is an aspiring actress so we decided to home educate her to ensure that she had ample time to prepare for auditions. Tutors & Futures structured her learning with the utmost efficiency to give her the best opportunity to succeed with her passion. She spent time filing in multiple locations across the world, acting in programmes such as Game of Thrones, but we never had any worries that her education would suffer.
I would give more stars if I could. Patrick took us on when nobody else was prepared to help: during the last minute rush of the 2021 summer private GCSE chaos when everyone was fully booked (even Patrick). Without Patrick, my daughter would have been delayed by another year (after the 2020 Covid cancellations) AND he never made us feel like we should be grateful - he was so helpful and patient throughout the GCSE (mocks) process.
We took our daughter out of the private school she was at because we felt that she was struggling to keep up with her peers. She is dyslexic and often found it difficult to keep track of what was going on in lessons. Patrick taught her daily and instilled a confidence in her that we didn't know she was capable of. After a year of sessions, she decided to return to school as she was missing her friends. When she returned, we were amazed at the difference Patrick's sessions had made, particularly in English where she is now near the top of her class. We've kept on lessons with Patrick after school and we can't thank him enough.
I appreciate that many people can get resources and support from the home ed Facebook groups but due to the nature of our jobs, we just wanted some quick info from a reliable source. Patrick was recommended to us by a family friend and we are grateful for the way he simplified everything for us. Our two children are now thriving in a home learning environment.
Before Patrick, I didn't know that home education was a thing in the UK! We were introduced to him through a friend and explained our son's situation. He was struggling at school due to anxiety and it was beginning to spiral out of control. Thankfully, we found Patrick and he detailed why home ed might be the best option. He offered us lots of advice and the 'guide' he produced for us was brilliant.
As an aspiring gymnast, we decided to home educate our daughter so that she could spend more time training. We enlisted Patrick's help to monitor her academic progress and ensure she wasn't falling behind in any way. He explained to us that she could work at her own pace and focus on particular areas of interest.
Home education allows you to be flexible with your approach and for your child to progress at their own pace. You don't have to choose specific subjects, or build your schedule according to a rigid structure.
You will often see the terms home education and homeschooling used interchangeably but they have slightly different meanings. Homeschooling is widely used in the US but in the UK it has connotations which link it closely to schooling at home which means you are still under the auspices of the school. Home education means that you are officially deregistered and taking control of your child's education.
Parents want educators who can cater to their child's particular needs - that's why they choose us. We have nearly a decade of experience working with home educated children which puts us in the perfect position to support families.
We have worked with students who have had problems at school, and those who have left school to pursue a sporting career.
You must write a deregistration letter to the school stating that you would like your child to be removed from the school roll as you will be home educating. You do not need to explain your reasoning but they may ask anyway.
Students sit official exams in the same way they would if they were in mainstream education. They enter with a local exam centre and this does incur additional costs. All of our students receive discounted entries with our exam partners Tutors & Exams.
For home educated students to sit exams, they must register with either a local school/college or a private exam centre. This incurs additional costs. All of our students receive discounted entries with our exam partners Tutors & Exams, where the average IGCSE costs £169. If your child has recently deregistered from a school, it is always worth contacting them to see if they would consider facilitating the exams.
