Parent reviews of our online tuition service

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

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

Parent

“TLC has changed our lives. Both mine and my son’s. School was dreaded: parents’ evenings were 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’.”

Parent

“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.”

Teacher reviews of our online tuition service

“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.”

Teacher

What do our tutors say about our chemistry curricula?

“I have really come to value TLC’s detailed, interactive lesson plans, and the feedback and assessment data is really useful for next steps. It’s rewarding to see students improve so quickly, and it’s great to see them really begin to understand tough concepts like balancing equations.”

Science Tutor

“After years of teaching, I’ve been with TLC as a remote chemistry tutor for a little over a year. The resources are great, and it’s nice to have science videos for each topic. They provide a great jumping off point, and from there I can adjust my approach to suit each student – something I couldn’t do in the classroom.”

Yes, every student is given their own individual 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 educational content that we update on a daily basis.

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.
