Online one to one tutoring to support secondary transition and raise GCSE maths grades
My confidence in Third Space Learning is high. We’ve had some phenomenal results from using the one to one tutoring, we even had one girl who was on a grade 5 get a grade 8. It only enhances their mathematical education. It’s incredible – both for students and for staff.

90% of students show a solid understanding of each concept at the end of each session.
In an independent trial, students made 7 months’ progress in 14 weeks.
70% of students who report low confidence at the start say it has improved after their sessions.
100% of teachers surveyed felt the sessions helped students achieve better assessment results in 2023.
Our team of former secondary maths teachers have created a range of programmes across suitable for KS3 and GCSE.
All lessons follow an â€˜I do, we do, you do’ approach to build conceptual understanding.
View KS3 ProgrammesProgrammes are available to support students as they progress through KS3 and KS4.
Personalised maths tutoring helps students make faster progress towards their target GCSE maths grade.
Diagnostic assessments at the start of the programme let tutors and teachers know where each student needs most support.
Tutors use formative assessments to adapt the pathway through each lesson, providing opportunities to recap prior learning if pupils need or skipping straight to independent practice if they’re ready.
Teachers can review and re-order lessons at any point
All secondary tutors are graduates in STEM subjects, are fully background-checked and undergo a rigorous application.
Each tutor completes our intensive tutor training programme and receives regular and ongoing CPD.
We know your staff and students will love it.
If you don’t, weâ€™ll give you 100% of your money back if youâ€™re not happy within the first 6 weeks.

Each programme contains 20 specially created tutoring lessons designed to build conceptual
understanding and respond to studentsâ€™ needs in real-time.
KS3
GCSE
Let’s learn
After an opportunity to recap prior learning if they need it, students are introduced to the concept
Follow me + your turn
Students work through a scaffolded example with their tutor before trying a similar question on their own
You do
A carefully sequenced next question ensures students can apply knowledge to different contexts
Go further
This gives students an opportunity to apply their knowledge to problem solving and reasoning questions
Try this exam style question
The first question enables tutors to assess understanding of the topic
Letâ€™s go through this together
If needed, scaffolded slides help students explore how to approach the question
Your turn
Students get opportunities to apply their knowledge independently
Ready for a challenge?
If their tutor is confident theyâ€™ve grasped the topic, students can take it even further
Let us know how many students you’re looking to support and we’ll be in touch with more information about how it works, the impact you can expect to see and a personalised quote for your school.
