Tutors & Futures is an elite tuition company with a reputation for providing the highest quality of service.
Our no obligation initial consultation takes place remotely and allows us to get a full understanding of your requirements, explain how we can support the student's academic needs and answer any questions that you may have about our classes and pricing.
The online classes can be accessed remotely, meaning students aren't limited by geographical location. All of the sessions take place via Zoom, with work set on Google Classroom so that progress can be easily marked and tracked.
The online classes allow a high quality education to be accessed at an affordable price. There are no hefty long-term contracts, with invoices sent out at the start of each month. This is part of our commitment to supporting as many students as possible.
The classes are geared towards preparation for IGCSEs or equivalent qualifications. Students can stagger the examinations, or take them all in one sitting. All of our students receive discounted exam entries with our partners Tutors & Exams.
Our current classes allow students to prepare for exams at their own pace
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.
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.
Unlike many online schools, we do not stream individuals based on their age. One of the biggest advantages of home education is that students can take exams when they feel that they are ready. We have had students as young as 9 who have sat IGCSEs and achieved Grade 9.
No! The beauty of remote learning is that we am able to teach students wherever they are in the world. We have taught students in over 20 different countries.
Your child will need either a laptop, a computer, or a smart device to access the lessons. All work is set via Google Classroom but if your child would like to work through textbooks, please let us know and we will send you the links to purchase them.
There is no requirement for any students to have their cameras on. In fact, many prefer to keep them off and communicate using the chat function.
We don't tie you in to hefty termly contracts - we like to keep it simple as we know circumstances change. We send out an invoice at the start of each month which must be paid before your child attends any lessons*.
Our group classes cost roughly £50 per month**.
We are different to many online schools in that we do not have set term dates, although we do take the traditional two weeks off over Christmas.
*You pay for all invoiced sessions, even those missed through illness.
**This is based on a one hour weekly lesson plus support throughout the month. Some classes have different fees.
On average home educated students sit at least five IGCSEs, as that is often the requirement to progress to college. A one-year IGCSE course usually lasts around 10 months.
What does that mean for you?
£50 p/m for 10 months = £500 per subject
This is only a guide as the lessons for some subjects are longer than one hour. Furthermore, one of the beauties of home education is that you can stagger the exams over multiple exam sittings.
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.
Our reviews are testament to the rigorous approach we employ with every family.
The relaxed nature of the lessons made me feel really comfortable. Patrick's style of teaching put the whole class at ease and he was always on hand to support when I had questions.
I left school as I was having some problems with anxiety and the whole environment was stressing me out. Patrick made me feel relaxed and gave me the space to breathe so I could concentrate on my studies without fear.
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.
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.
I was keen to stagger my exams over a number of years so that I could experience things outside a traditional school environment. Patrick gave me the platform to do this. Over my time with him, I studied English Language, Biology, History & Geography, and for each subject I received exceptional support.
