We have our own bespoke educational content that we update on a daily basis. For example, we ensure that our English activities always related to topical issues and events, which helps inspire our reluctant writers!
During each session, a student works one-on-one with a qualified tutor who presents and tests new skills. There may be up to two other students, in separate break out rooms, who are taught by the same tutor during the same session. However, each student works on his/her own lessons, and students can’t interact with each other.
Tutors work with students in real time, guiding students through new skills or reviewing skills the students may have forgotten. As students work on lessons to demonstrate understanding, and eventually mastery, of these skills, tutors will monitor their progress.
Tutors leave feedback after each lesson providing information on the students’ performance and progress. Parents can log on to our website and check the feedback left by the tutor.
This is something that TLC LIVE takes very seriously. All our tutors are thoroughly reviewed with enhanced external criminal record checks, verification of ID status, references, qualifications and experience. Read more on our Safeguarding page.
All of our UK based tutors are fully qualified to teach and have classroom teaching experience. We ensure all tutors have Qualified Teaching Status (QTS) and are PGCE qualified with an accompanying Bachelor Degree. They are also all DBS checked as standard.
We carefully monitor each teacher to ensure that students are receiving the highest quality instruction. New teachers are observed and evaluated. In addition, students are asked to feedback at the end of each session.
How well do the tutors know the national curriculum? All TLC LIVE tutors must have previous experience in teaching the national curriculum and are further supported by our academic team who keep them up to date with the latest guidance.
Before we set up the first lesson, we will require the school to brief us on the student’s academic progress. We will then get the student to complete a free assessment which helps the tutors identify the student’s skill gaps.
The lesson will still run with a cover tutor. As our teachers complete lesson plans and progress reports for each lesson, we’re able to ensure your student doesn’t miss out and retains lesson continuity.
available 24 hours after each lesson, the teacher completes a feedback report showing the students attendance, engagement and areas covered. Any written work completed by the student is included in the feedback and is marked by the teacher.
On request we can provide a summary report, condensing all the feedback reports into an easy to print A4 page per subject, giving overall attendance, academic progress as well as the students feedback on their lessons.
All lessons can be cancelled or rearranged with 36 hours notice. This gives you the freedom to use TLC LIVE as and when you need it whether one-off revision sessions or regular lessons for the student.
Any lesson that needs to be cancelled or rearranged can be done so with 36 hours notice. Whether this is to change a student’s timetable permanently or simply for a one off lesson, we can support to make sure the lessons are running at a time that best suits the needs of the student.
