What is Pioneer Academy?

Pioneer Academy is a tutoring business partnership that was set up in November 2011 by Simon and Tracy Creasey. Based in Folkestone, Kent, Pioneer Academy exists to invest in individuals’ lives, offering empowered learning through one-on-one and small-group tutoring to both schooled and homeschooled children, youth and adults.

Birthed originally as a response to families choosing to homeschool their children, Pioneer Academy delivers the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) curriculum to homeschooled children through group tutorial sessions, parent training sessions, and all aspects of A.C.E. administration.

Pioneer Academy has since branched out, seeing an even greater need for individualised and empowered tutorial sessions in the following areas:

  • General assistance with work at Key Stages 1, 2, and 3
  • Preparation for the Kent Test (11+) examination
  • Help with GCSE-level work, specialising in Maths, English Grammar, French, German and ICT, but also covering other subjects
  • Help with AS and A2-Level work, again specialising in the above subjects
  • Assistance with higher-level essay compositions, proof-reading and time-management
  • Computer MoT’s and tutorials in various areas of IT, computing, networking, PC problem-shooting, etc.
  • Partnering with other organisations in designing and delivering courses
  • Providing fun activity-based sessions and Life Skills sessions
