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 SATs 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

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.”

“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 was 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.”

“Having had three children attend 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.”

How online history tuition with TLC works

Step 1

Before your student begins their online history tuition, they will take a comprehensive initial assessment designed to identify skill gaps. Lessons run through term time. You can book onto the whole course or join the remaining sessions whenever suits your student – and you’ll only ever pay for the lessons they attend.

Step 2

The tutor uses the assessment results to create a personalised learning plan for each student. Tutors have access to TLC’s library of over 35,000+ hours of material.

Step 3

Our online history tutoring sessions last for 60 minutes. All students need to do is log in from any internet-connected computer and give it their best.

Step 4

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