Teacher reviews of our online secondary school tutoring

“The pupils have engaged, enjoyed and showed tangible progress since we started using the programme in Years 10 and 11. I have no hesitation in recommending TLC to any secondary school looking for high quality intervention strategies.”

Peter Gibbon – Assistant Head, Great Baddow High School, Chelmsford

“I can highly recommend TLC LIVE. Over the years they have been assisting us with our GCSE students and have had a significant impact on raising our students’ achievements. We are also working with them on other year groups with equal success. I look forward to our continued partnership”

Howard Lay – Executive Principal, Samuel Ward Academy, Haverhill

“Whilst it is difficult to disentangle the work of TLC from the other inputs these students receive, there is no doubt that they have a positive impact on the individuals they support, so much so that in the last academic year, the 31 members of year 11 that they worked with and that passed maths added 15% to our 5 A*-C with English and Maths figure.”

Andy Prestoe – Head of School, Samuel Ward Academy, Haverhill

How our online secondary tuition works

Step 1

Pupils begin the process with an in-depth initial assessment that identifies their skill gaps.

Tutors use the results of the assessment to create a personalised learning plan, leveraging TLC LIVE’s library of over 35,000+ hours of material to create engaging, informative sessions.

Step 4

Once the session is over, the tutor makes notes on the pupil’s progress and performance and shares it with parents.
