What is Compass

How our innovative learning tool works


A one-of-a-kind learning tool designed by
Education Experts

We are really proud to present Compass – an innovative curriculum platform designed by our in-house Education Experts.

Why the change?

Having taught over 250,000 children, we have learnt so much about what delivers excellent progress and amazing learning experiences to our members.  We know what you want, so we’ve made it for you.

After testing the top range of learning tools available, we realised that the only thing that would perfectly meet our members’ needs both now and in the future, was a tool that was designed and built by us.

What makes Compass different?

With core functionalities to enhance children’s learning experience, Compass uses an adaptive logic engine, which chooses the questions for children based on their performance.

  • Compass allows us to support children in mastering and retaining skills.  We can then provide targeted intervention for topics that children are struggling with.
  • Our members won’t work their way through Compass in a linear way unlike other tuition providers.  The logic engine in Compass ensures that every child’s pathway is tailored to them and responds to their individual challenges and strengths based on their performance.
  • Your child will have a completely personalised learning path, which our expert tutors will guide them on, no matter their destination.
  • Compass has a built-in feature, which checks that the skills that children have previously mastered stay with them long term.  Our tutors therefore can concentrate 100% on bringing the sessions to life as Compass will always be delivering the right questions at the right time for your child.
