Parent reviews of our online primary English tuition

Parents rate TLC’s primary English tuition 4.46 out of 5 stars

“My daughter was in Year 5 and needed some enrichment with English. TLC enhanced her confidence and made the learning fun. Last May, she achieved outstanding results in SATS and now at Secondary school she continues to grow from strength to strength. My children continue to attend TLC LIVE because the tutoring is tailored to suit their individual educational needs but, most importantly, they enjoy it.”

Parent

“Having had three children attending TLC LIVE over the last couple of years, I can wholeheartedly recommend it. Not only does it provide a fun and interactive programme tailored to meet students’ individual needs, it also gives students the opportunity to learn at their own pace with the support of excellent and very encouraging tutors. I have seen my children gain in confidence, achieve better results at school and above all enjoy their learning because of TLC LIVE.”

Teacher reviews of our online tuition service

“From September to April we would be expecting a 2.0 improvement. Those children receiving TLC LIVE tuition from February to April achieved 2.8 in writing.”

Vicky McGregor, Deputy Head, Warwick Primary School, Wellingborough

“TLC have been a fantastic organisation to work with. They took the time to understand our needs, worked with us on a SATs programme and then delivered it seamlessly and at extremely high-quality. The students loved it and really engaged. Working with our teachers, TLC delivered continual monitoring and feedback. The staff were impressed, and the students attained fantastic SATs results. I am looking forward to continuing our relationship with TLC, who are definitely becoming part of our team.”

How online primary school English tutoring with TLC works

Step 1

A student’s primary school English tutoring journey starts with our free comprehensive initial assessment. This quick assessment is designed to quickly identify strengths and areas for improvement. Lessons run through term time. You can book onto the whole course or join the remaining sessions whenever suits your child – and you’ll only ever pay for the lessons your child attends.

Step 2

With the results of the assessment, the tutor creates a personalised learning plan for your child. Tutors draw from our library of over 35,000+ hours of material to ensure that sessions are engaging and effective.

Step 4
