Parent reviews of our online tuition service

Parents rate TLC’s primary school 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 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

“TLC enhanced my daughter’s confidence and made the learning fun. Last May, she achieved outstanding results in SATS and now at secondary school she continues to grow from strength to strength.”

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 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.
