Teacher reviews of our online tuition service

“Birchwood High School has worked with TLC for seven years and we have nothing but praise for the quality of tuition and the personal customer service. Whether face-to-face or online our students continue to thrive with the dedicated attention of excellent tutors. Highly recommended for quality intervention.”


“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 communication 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.”


“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.”


Parent reviews of our online tuition service

Parents rate TLC’s online 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 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.”

“Bryony has made 3 years progress in 1 year of lessons with TLC LIVE going from a 3a to a 5b.”

“I am pleased to inform you that Richa achieved an A* in English, Physics, Chemistry & Biology. Thanks to the entire team at TLC LIVE.”

How online science tuition with TLC works

Step 1

To determine the right focus for each student, every science tuition experience with TLC begins with a comprehensive initial assessment.

Step 2

The tutor then creates a personalised learning plan. They draw from over 35,000+ hours of material to generate a plan tailored to the student’s needs.

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.

What do our tutors say about our science curricula?

“I have been tutoring with TLC LIVE for over four years, including science at KS2, KS3 and KS4. I value TLC’s varied, interesting and accessible content and it’s great to see the difference that focused attention can make. I honestly think it’s the best private science tutoring system out there.”


“It’s not particularly surprising that students struggle to grasp complex scientific concepts, as they can be challenging and unintuitive at the best of times. Fortunately, it’s often just a matter of finding the right explanation for each student. I find that TLC facilitates independent learning, which I think is particularly well-suited to physics.”

Tutors work with students in real time, guiding them through new skills and reviewing things the students may have forgotten. At the end of every session, tutors provide information on the student’s performance and progress. Schools can access this by logging into the TLC LIVE website and reviewing the feedback, watching as the pupil develops understanding, and eventually mastery, of the topics they are studying.
