• Confidence unlocks success


    If we're confident with what we do, we enjoy it.
    If we enjoy what we do, we do more of it.
    If we do more of it, we see results.

    Success breeds success.

Learning can happen anywhere

Hi, I'm Sumantha, founder of The Upgrade Project.


Based in Berkshire, UK and with clients all around the world, I use online tools and teaching techniques, to deliver lessons that are:


- Engaging

- Focused

- Interactive

You're fully supported

Students' needs are at the heart of everything I offer.  


My 12+ years of teaching has taught me that, for children to reach their potential, they need to be supported from all angles.  That's why I share a range of resources to help parents and guardians too.

The Tutor Team

As the Lead Tutor, I'm very much involved in tutoring.


However, I'm often fully-booked which is why I work with specialist tutors who I interview, observe and support.


You will always have the choice of:

  • Booking me as your tutor, if I have space
  • Being matched with a tutor, if there's a suitable match
  • Joining the waiting list
