Teacher reviews of our KS1 and KS2 lessons

“From September to April we would be expecting a 2.0 improvement. Those children receiving TLC LIVE tuition from February to April achieved 2.8 in writing and 2.5 in maths.”

Vicky McGregor, Warwick Primary School

“TLC have been a fantastic organisation to work with. They took the time to understand our needs, worked with us on a SATs programme and then delivered it seamlessly and at extremely high-quality. The students loved it and really engaged. As one said, “I didn’t used to like maths and now it is my favourite subject.” Working with our teachers TLC delivered continual monitoring and feedback. The staff were impressed, and the students attained fantastic SATs results.”

Alex Prior, Etonbury Academy, Arlesey

“The service and communication are excellent, and the flexibility to tailor the content to your pupils’ needs is outstanding. I have no hesitation in recommending TLC.”

Peter Gibbon, Great Baddow High School, Chelmsford

Parent reviews of our KS1 and KS2 online tutoring

Parents rate TLC’s KS1 and KS2 tutoring 4.46 out of 5 stars

“My daughter was in Year 5 and needed some help with maths. TLC enhanced her 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.”

“Having had three children attending TLC LIVE over the last couple of years, I can wholeheartedly recommend it.”

“TLC has changed our lives. Both mine and my son’s. School was dreaded: parents’ evenings a list of things he had not achieved and homework a battle. The TLC team have shown Finn a world where learning is fun and where he is given the time he needed to ‘grasp the nettle’. He loves his sessions and already his test results have gone up a whole level.”

How our KS1 and KS2 tutoring works

Step 1

Every pupil begins the process with a comprehensive initial assessment designed to identify areas where they need additional support.

Step 2

With the results of the assessment, a tutor creates a personalised learning plan. Tutors have access to over 35,000+ hours of material to create engaging, informative lessons.

Step 3

Every KS1 and KS2 online tutoring session lasts for one hour, during which each pupil receives their tutor’s full attention and a targeted curriculum. To join, students simply need to log in from any internet-connected device.

Step 4

After the session, the tutor notes the student’s performance and makes it available to the school for easy monitoring. Regular best-in-class pupil assessments provide quantifiable proof of progress.
