Qualified teachers

We believe that only qualified teachers are qualified to be online tutors. They are subject-specialists, selected for their curriculum expertise.

Every one of our online tutors is:

  • a qualified teacher with the Cognita seal of approval

  • fully background checked to work with children (enhanced DBS check)

  • trained to deliver the support and encouragement your child needs to thrive

Learning between lessons

As part of your tutoring package, we provide unlimited access to an award-winning intelligent learning platform delivered in partnership with CENTURY. Built on Artificial Intelligence and neuroscience research, it provides a personalised learning path for students to use in between lessons.

Partnership with parents

We involve parents at every stage, with as much or as little engagement as they wish - we know how important it is to understand and share the same goals for your child. We actively engage with parents at each stage:

  • Before the first session - parents are invited to complete a short expectations survey

  • During the sessions - each one is recorded and can be reviewed

  • After the sessions - tutors provide feedback

  • Between sessions - tutors are available via chat

  • After the first six sessions - the tutor holds a mini 'parents' evening'
