WHAT ARE WE?

A novel approach to education, combining the ease of access of ‘Online Tutoring’ with elements of the co-operation and social interaction found in a classroom. We provide small group sessions where our students can freely exchange ideas whilst being guided in their tasks to foster the skills needed for their upcoming public examinations and university/career interviews.

We also offer one-to-one sessions across all subjects to help ease the burden of homeschooling on parents in this everchanging environment of uncertainty.
