Testimonials from schools


“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. As one said, “I didn’t used to like maths and now it is my favourite subject.” Working with our teachers TLC delivered continual monitoring and feedback. 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- Principal, Etonbury Academy, Arlesey


“I must admit that I have been sceptical of the value and impact of on-line 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.”

Peter Gibbon – Assistant Head, Great Baddow High School, Chelmsford


“The Folkestone School for Girls used online tutorials with TLC Live for a number of our Pupil Premium students last year. The set up was flexible allowing students to access further help in Maths and/or English either from school or at home – whenever AND WHEREVER it suited students best. There was initial guidance from our own teachers as to areas of weakness and target grade information – so that lessons could be personalised to the needs of the students. We had students working to attain C grades but equally other students were working towards A grades. Students concerned found the tutorials very helpful in addressing areas they struggled with. Whilst we as a school also worked with individuals through targeted support and revision, this was a complementary strand to our work to raise grades further. Whilst the impact of individual strategies can be hard to assess, as part of a raft of measures, results were impressive. 100% A* – C Grades in Maths and English and feedback from students was that the sessions were helpful. The proof of this is in the fact that when asked if they wanted us to extend their programme of tutorials the students WAS A RESOUNDING YES!”

Mark Lester – Vice Principal, Folkestone School for Girls, Folkestone


“TLC has had a huge impact on the progress of our pupil premium children and has enable us to secure accelerated progress in maths. Children who have had TLC LIVE sessions for 5 weeks made an average 2.4 pts progress in 5 weeks with 62.5% making one sub-level and 6% making a whole level”

“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


“Northampton School for Boys has been using TLC LIVE lessons since November 2012 with students in Years 7 to 11. We have found that weekly English, Maths and Science tutorials are a cost-effective and efficient method of boosting confidence and raising attainment that fits around students’ busy timetables. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend TLC LIVE to colleagues at other schools and we will be continuing to rebook TLC LIVE lessons next term.”

Shaz Minai – Local Authority Maths AST, Northampton School for Boys


“We are very pleased to be associated with TLC LIVE. Their attention to detail and first class service enable our students to work effectively, independently and make tangible progress.”

Tony Bamford – Deputy Headteacher, The Pingle School


“Overall we have been very pleased with how the tutorials have gone and feel that most of the students fully engaged with the sessions and found them helpful and rewarding. I am currently getting feedback from some of the students and our initial impressions are being confirmed in their responses. Many thanks for all your assistance with the running of this programme.”

Sharon Highland – Admin Officer, The Folkestone School for Girls


“’Samuel Ward Academy formed a partnership with TLC a number of years ago. The philosophy behind our joint working has always been to provide as much one to one support as possible for students that find maths and English challenging, in essence removing the barriers that stop them going on to achieve the qualifications they need to access further education and employment. Whilst it is difficult to disentangle the work of TLC from the other inputs these students receive, there is no doubt that they have a positive impact on the individuals they support, so much so that in the last academic year, the 31 members of year 11 that they worked with and that passed maths added 15% to our 5 A*-C with English and Maths figure. Of course this is only possible because of the way in which our staff and those of TLC work together, but never-the-less it indicates the potential that partnerships built around learning and pupil outcomes have.”

Andy Prestoe – Head of School, Samuel Ward Academy, Haverhill


“From September to April we would be expecting a 2.0 improvement. Those children receiving TLC LIVE tuition from February to April achieved 2.8 in writing and 2.5 in maths”

Vicky McGregor – Deputy Head, Warwick Primary School, Wellingborough


“It is a cost-effective investment which compares favourably with those offered by other companies. We’re now rolling the platform out to a number of our students who require additional support in English, Maths and Science.”
