Waltham Abbey Tutor Groups

Coronavirus Notice – Waltham Abbey Tutor Groups

All the teachers and I have agreed that with the uncertainty about Coronavirus lockdown that we will continue to run all lessons online for all of September and October. Please check the new timetable as some lessons have had slight time changes. Julia’s and Daniels classes have all moved to the online timetable so they will no longer teach at Waltham Abbey just online. All payments are to be paid via Paypal. There are no hall hire fees for any classes at the moment.  We will notify you all when we have any plans for returning to our usual Face to Face AWE Club in Waltham Abbey. I hope to see you all soon!

If you are looking for our online tutor groups for long term online lessons, not just during Coronavirus lockdown, please go to this page.


AWE run weekly, small group, lessons with professional qualified teachers in Waltham Abbey. They are planned so that long journeys are worthwhile, enabling children to come for whole days thereby spending time with their friends during lessons and in the breaks. The children benefit from group learning and reasonable costs and make friends too. The Science teacher ensures there are lots of hands on experiments using real equipment that Home Educators find difficult to access.

“Hi Debbie. I hope it’s ok but I wanted to pass on my appreciation and thanks to Mike the science teacher. Seriously this man, is a gem!! He takes his job and his responsibility so darn seriously I needed to say something. [personal details removed]
Mike is organised, reliable, making amazing use of the technology and just darn perfect!! He even has recording of his lessons (****** has been unable to attend this weeks so that is so handy!) Thank you Mike for adapting so beautifully to this situation. You are very very much appreciated. :))”

“The group of young people in his class, are all so lovely. He’s had an amazing 2 years doing the course. I’m so grateful to you for creating the space where our home educated children can come and learn together. Thank you Debbie”

Tutored Lessons

Lessons are run in Waltham Abbey and have students attending from a wide range of locations. Parents must remain on site but can leave if another parent agrees to take responsibility for their child. This is a good time for the children to socialise and gives the parents an opportunity to chat with like-minded families.
