Parent reviews of our online tuition service

Parents rate TLC’s online science tuition 4.46 out of 5 stars

“TLC has changed our lives. Both mine and my son’s. School was dreaded: Parents’ evenings a list of things he had not achieved and homework a battle. The TLC team have shown Finn a world where learning is fun and where he is given the time he needed to ‘grasp the nettle’. He loves his sessions and already his test results have gone up a whole level.”


“Bryony has made 3 years progress in 1 year of lessons with TLC LIVE going from a 3a to a 5b.”


“I am pleased to inform you that Richa achieved an A* in English, Physics, Chemistry & Biology. Thanks to the entire team at TLC LIVE.”


Teacher reviews of our online tuition service

“Birchwood High School have worked with TLC for seven years and we have nothing but praise for the quality of tuition and the personal customer service. Whether face-to-face or online our students continue to thrive with the dedicated attention of excellent tutors. Highly recommended for quality intervention”


“I must admit that I have been sceptical of the value and impact of on-line tuition until my association with TLC Live. The pupils have engaged, enjoyed and showed tangible progress since we started using the programme in Years 10 and 11. The service and communication is excellent and the flexibility to tailor the content to your pupils’ needs is outstanding. I have no hesitation in recommending TLC to any secondary school looking for high quality intervention strategies.”


“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.”

What do our tutors say about our science curricula?

“I have been tutoring with TLC LIVE for over four years, including science at KS2, KS3 and KS4. I value TLC’s varied, interesting and accessible content and it’s great to see the difference that focused attention can make. I honestly think it’s the best private science tutoring system out there.”

Science Tutor

“It’s not particularly surprising that students struggle to grasp complex scientific concepts, as they can be challenging and unintuitive at the best of times. Fortunately, it’s often just a matter of finding the right explanation for each student. I find that TLC facilitates independent learning, which I think is particularly well-suited to physics.”

Lessons can run anytime to suit the organisation, whether that’s from school, from home, during the day or in an evening. TLC LIVE also run lots of lessons over holidays as targeted revision or catch-up sessions.

Yes! This is the whole point of TLC LIVE. The tutor will identify the student’s learning needs and skill gaps and build an individual learning plan around these requirements.

No. TLC LIVE lessons are structured in order to maximise learning and filling missing gaps in the time available.

Yes, every student is given their own individual science learning plan. After the initial assessment, we put a plan together that deals with the skill gaps identified. The plan will be adjusted as other areas of required academic focus come to light.

We have our own bespoke interactive educational science content that we update on a daily basis. We don’t use PowerPoints!

Tutors work with students in real time, guiding students through new skills or reviewing things 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.

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 also have a Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) as standard.

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.

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.
