About us

A bit of background to how we established ourselves as the go-to tutoring service in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and West London.

How we came about


"We are lifelong learners that began tutoring in Berkshire whilst studying for our Bachelors of Science degrees. Having taught ourselves how to learn effectively we became passionate about the idea of approaching education in a more engaging way.

Word spread and as demand grew for quality tutors the team decided to expand, bringing on new, qualified tutors and teachers whilst partnering with local schools to provide great educational facilities.

We’ve had thousands of students go through our tutoring over the last decade and it's rewarding to see the impact we can have."

- Zayn, Seiar and Ali (Founders of Ad Astra) 

See our journey below.

Started 2008:

Talent is hard to find. We started as an agency, sourcing quality tutors and pairing them to students across Berkshire.

2011:

A big year for us! We launched our first tuition centre. We had an influx of students and began bringing on new talent to support.

2015:

Local schools needed more after school support and we began partnering programmes which supported over 1,000 students to date.

2018:

Now in multiple locations in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Greater London we're expanding our services, our locations and we're excited to see how much more we can do.

How we do it

Our approach to learning is based on three principles: Adapt, Instill and Expand.

Adapt

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet. Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

Instil

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet. Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

Expand

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse varius enim in eros elementum tristique. Duis cursus, mi quis viverra ornare, eros dolor interdum nulla, ut commodo diam libero vitae erat. Aenean faucibus nibh et justo cursus id rutrum lorem imperdiet. Nunc ut sem vitae risus tristique posuere.

1. Adapt

We assess each learner to establish their current academic level, in order to, adapt to their needs and support them in the best way possible.

2. instill

We create learning environments which promote a culture of participation, instilling confidence and increasing classroom engagement.

3. expand

Understanding that consistency is the key to learning, there is weekly or daily support available for each learner - working closely with you to reach your goals.
