Parent reviews of our online tuition service

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

“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.”

Parent

“TLC has changed our lives. Both mine and my son’s. School was dreaded: Parents’ evenings a list of things he hadn’t achieved and homework a battle. The TLC team have shown Finn a world where learning is fun and where he’s 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.”

What do our tutors say about our biology curricula?

“I really value the clarity of TLC’s lesson plans for biology tutoring. They provide a solid foundation for covering challenging topics like homeostasis – my personal speciality – and make life easier for the students. I’m also free to use my own worksheets that I built over my time as a teacher, so students get the best of both.”

Science Tutor

“I love teaching with TLC LIVE. It’s great to work with students at a range of ages and ability levels, and the resources make it easy to adjust each session to the student’s needs and grow alongside them as they develop a greater understanding of the topic.”

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.

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 biology 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 biology 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.
