“We just wanted to let you know that Sophie got an A grade in her GCSE maths. We are so pleased and proud of all the hard work she put in, and wanted to thank you for the help and confidence you gave her to help her achieve this.”

“My son is in Year 10 and is working with TLC to help him prepare for his GCSE maths, being taken a year early. Both of my children continue to attend TLC LIVE because the tutoring is tailored to suit their individual educational needs but, most importantly, they enjoy it.”

“Having had three children attending 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.”

How KS3 and KS4 maths tuition with TLC works

Step 1

Our KS3 and KS4 tuition starts with a free comprehensive initial assessment to measure each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Lesson courses run through term time, and you can book on to the whole course or join the remaining sessions. You only ever pay for the lessons your students attend.

Step 2

With the results of the assessment, one of our dedicated tutors creates a comprehensive learning plan. They have access to over 35,000+ hours of material to generate a plan that will help your student make the most progress.

Step 3

During each 60-minute session, students receive one-to-one secondary maths tuition from a tutor. All they need to do is log in from any internet-connected device and give their full attention.

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.
