Parent reviews of our online history tuition

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

“We are so very pleased with the progress Oliver has made since commencing his tuition with TLC LIVE. His last school report showed that Oliver had improved by two sub levels in just one term and he is now achieving results above the national average. For Oliver, learning online is far more interesting than being taught in a classroom and much less intimidating.”

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.”

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

“TLC have been a fantastic organisation to work with. They took the time to understand our needs, worked with us on a SAT’s programme and then delivered it seamlessly and at extremely high-quality. 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.”

Alex Prior, Etonbury Academy, Arlesey

“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

“I must admit that I have been sceptical of the value and impact of online 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 communications 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.”

Peter Gibbon, Great Baddow High School, Chelmsford
