Teacher reviews of our online primary tuition service

“TLC has 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.”

“We have 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 chose TLC LIVE because their tutoring model was topic-based, which means pupils are met at the level they were currently at. The TLC model also assesses progression of pupils over the course of the tutoring sessions but also within each hour-long session and we receive a detailed feedback report at the end of each session for every child which is great for assessing impact.”

Parent reviews of our online tuition service

Parents rate TLC’s primary school 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 hadn’t achieved and homework 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.”

“TLC enhanced my daughter’s confidence and made the learning fun. Last May, she achieved outstanding results in SATs and now at secondary school she continues to grow from strength to strength.”

How online primary school science tuition with TLC works

Step 1

The online tutoring process begins with a comprehensive initial assessment that identifies the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Step 2

The tutor uses the student’s results to generate a personalised learning plan so they can make the most of the time available. All of our tutors have access to a library of over 35,000+ hours of material, which ensures that they can cover every topic in depth.

Step 3

Our primary school science tuition takes place in 60-minute sessions. The student can access it from any internet-connected computer – all they need to do is log on and give it their best shot.

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.

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.
