How online physics tutoring with TLC works

Step 1

Every student begins their online physics tutoring with a comprehensive initial assessment. This identifies their strengths and weaknesses so we can make the most of the time available.

Step 2

Their tutor then creates a comprehensive, personalised learning plan, leveraging over 35,000+ hours of targeted, interactive, learning material, aligned to the current curriculum.

Step 3

The online physics tutoring takes place in 60-minute sessions. The student simply needs to log in from any internet-connected computer and give it their all.

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 physics curricula?

“Working as an online GCSE physics tutor with TLC LIVE has been great. The material is specific, relevant and well differentiated. It is easy to use for both me and the student, and I’m always impressed with the results. It’s a great foundation for taking on potentially tough topics like electrical circuits and specific heat capacity.”


“My work in secondary physics tutoring with students across a range of year groups and skill levels is rewarding. The resources TLC provides are very good and they save hours of preparation and uploading. I like how the resources are organised and the different areas are really easy to find when planning.”

We have our own targeted educational content that we update on a daily basis.

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.
