JK Educate

Part of the Dukes Education Family, JK Educate is a leading tutoring agency and educational consultancy founded in 2010 by two teachers and senior school leaders. JK was established to fulfil the vision and belief that every child should be given the opportunity and encouragement to achieve to the best of their ability and potential.

Now led by Managing Director Katie Krais, our unique approach remains the same as ever. We put a strong emphasis on getting to know each student and learning how best to support their individual circumstances and ambitions. This enables us, through our select team of talented and highly qualified tutors, to offer advice, bespoke planning and individual teaching, to enable each student to reach their full potential.

The consultancy operates to support families across London, the UK and globally, offering both face-to-face and online tutoring. Professionalism, integrity and an intense commitment to providing the best possible service underscores everything we do. Your child. Our priority. Let us know how we can help you.

Bespoke Tutoring Services

JK Educate has a well-established tutoring track record, including high quality GCSE, A-level, IB and undergraduate tutoring.

We ensure that all tutors are carefully matched. We find the right tutor for each student based on their learning targets, their personality and their individual style of learning. This applies for all students, from the age of 4 right through to university, and ensures a truly bespoke service.

We often work collaboratively with students’ schools to provide just the right level of extra support and challenge. Together, we help students reach their potential and achieve the grades they need to fulfil their onward study and career ambitions.

Specialist GCSE, A-level, IB and Undergraduate Tutoring

As a premium tutoring agency, the tutors that work with us to provide tutoring for GCSEs, A-levels or the IB are either experienced teachers or well-trained professional tutors. Most have degrees in the subjects they teach, including some PhD qualified tutors. We interview all our tutors as part of a rigorous selection process. We check academic qualifications, certificates and identity documents.  We also require an original Enhanced Disclosure from the DBS, not more than three years old. We take up full reference checks and only retain tutors who receive positive client and student feedback.

JK tutors are trained and monitored by experienced senior teachers, so our clients rest assured that students are not only being supported by a single tutor but a whole team of educational experts. We consistently monitor each student’s progress, adapting teaching methods and using bespoke approaches that are most effective for the best A-level, Pre-U and IB results.

With challenging tutorial sessions and guided additional reading or practice, students can be helped to truly excel in their exams. Students experience supported learning that is tailored to their individual needs, focussing on areas of weakness or interest to deepen their knowledge and practice the skills required to get the grades they need to pursue their aims.

We provide curriculum tutoring combined with effective study and revision skills, and exam technique. Our tutors are increasingly in demand for ad hoc tutoring. This is sometimes to trouble shoot specific areas of the curriculum in a GCSE or A-level subject, to prepare for end of year exams or mocks, or to help undergraduate students make the leap into that new level of study. We can offer flexible short-term tutoring in this way, or establish long-term tutor-student relationships that bring great results over several years.

Tutoring In Person or Online

Tutoring can take place in person or online, which means students can be matched to the ideal tutor even if they live far apart. The ideal tutor for an individual student in a specific subject may not live close enough to each other for tutoring in person, but they can still work together well using the JK Educate interactive online classroom. This tutoring availability online is valuable to overseas students, those who live in the UK but outside London – or even just the opposite side of London from the perfect tutor for their needs!

Our online tutoring programme provides a shared screen with an interactive whiteboard, allowing tutors and students to upload documents, write together, see each other and keep a copy of documents.

Recent A-level Trustpilot Review

‘First class tutoring!

‘Firstly, a huge thanks to Holly at JK Educate who has just finished tutoring my son for his A-level English exams. As well as help with the texts she also taught him valuable independent learning skills that will be so good for Uni. And throughout the process he’s always known she was in his corner, wanting him to do well, which has a special impact all of its own.

‘Always friendly, supportive and highly professional, I have no hesitation in recommending JK Educate.’

JK Educate A-level Tutoring Case Study

Following a disappointing school report, a JK Educate client sought tutoring to help her Year 13 daughter achieve her target grades for university and to highlight any areas that required intervention. The student admitted that she hadn’t been working hard enough, so we liaised with the client to agree and put in place a checklist that allowed the student to take greater responsibility for her learning and become more accountable.

To best support the student during this critical period in her education, three achievable targets were identified around focus, demonstration of commitment and producing quality work. And to ensure ongoing accountability, the student was asked to assess herself against the three targets and compare it to her tutors’ overall impression after each lesson.

The student worked very well with her new plan for self-assessment, actively reflecting on the quality of her work and progress and becoming more invested in her progress. This resulted in a marked improvement in her retention of knowledge and the quality of her written analysis, and her improved autumn exam results were back on track to meet her predicted grades.

Application Testimonials

I am extremely grateful all the courses that you held in preparation for the TSA and for the interviews. I honestly couldn’t have done it without your support at every stage. Thank you to the whole team and especially to my mentor, who was amazing in tutoring me over Skype™ , in preparing me so accurately to the interviews, with the questions he gave me to practice and the skills to developed in answering questions, and how to explore my answers. All this help really helped me tremendously in my interviews! I felt so much more confident and for that I really couldn’t of done any better. Thank you again for everything, the generosity and support was unbelievable, and I met some amazing people along the way too.

The guidance I have received from my mentor and the Oxbridge Applications team has been invaluable…Not only has the mentoring helped me become more familiar with my subject as an academic discipline, but it has also helped me to better articulate myself and present ideas more clearly and succinctly-skills which I believe definitely proved useful at interview. I do not think I would have had the confidence necessary to apply had it not been for the support I have received from the service and for that, I cannot thank Oxbridge Applications enough. I encourage anyone who is thinking of applying to Oxbridge to definitely apply to the service!

The mock interviews gave me a lot of confidence because I knew I was now as prepared as most of the candidates and they really helped me learn how to go about answering the quite open questions thrown at you by an interviewer.
