Why choose TLC Live for secondary tuition?

Real teachers with DBS checks

Unlike some tutoring providers, we pride ourselves on using only qualified teaching experts with real knowledge of the topics they teach. Our online secondary English tutoring, for example, uses real English teachers – and the same goes for all other subjects.

Results-driven approach

Through regular assessments and a deep awareness of the curriculum and exam requirements – across OCR, AQA, and Edexcel – our tutors deliver a quantifiable increase in attainment.

Authorised NTP partner

As a government-approved National Tutoring Programme (NTP) provider, TLC LIVE has raised the attainment of students impacted by the Covid pandemic. We run regular online NTP-funded sessions where our tutors work directly with schools to help students catch up.

Trusted by teachers

Thousands of teachers trust TLC LIVE to support their students academically, and for good reason. We have been supporting schools for over 15 years, and the results speak for themselves.

Support for all skill levels

Whether you’re looking to build a student’s confidence with the basics of a subject or feed their natural aptitude, our tutors adapt their programme to suit every student’s unique needs.

Engaging resources

Our tutors leverage an extensive library of video, audio, graphical, and written content, and this variety ensures that students stay engaged throughout the session.

Lessons from £13

“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

“TLC LIVE has provided an extremely valuable service to students at Bridgewater High School. In light of some of the gaps in learning which have emerged as a result of the pandemic, students have been able to identify and then close gaps in their English and Maths skills.”

How our online secondary tuition works

Step 1

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

Step 2

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 3

Online secondary tuition sessions with TLC LIVE last for one hour, and each pupil receives their tutor’s full attention. All the pupil needs to do is log in from any internet-connected device and stay engaged.

Step 4

Once the session is over, the tutor makes notes on the pupil’s progress and performance and shares it with teachers. Regular best-in-class pupil assessments provide data to quantify their progress.

What do our tutors say?

“I love the way everything is there to access straight away. I can work with students to proceed at their own pace, and there is a terrific range of work that covers almost every aspect of learning.”


“I like the fact that there is a huge range of content that I can use, but that I can use my own resources if I feel there is a need. I think it’s the best system out there, which is why I stay with TLC.”
