Specialist maths tutors trusted by thousands of maths teachers and senior leaders across the country.
This provides the opportunity for a large number of children to engage in bespoke maths tuition at the same time. The children are engaged throughout and are more willing to acknowledge their weaknesses with a stranger than they might be in the classroom.

Here at Third Space Learning, our community of specialist maths tutors has been supporting primary school pupils across the country with online maths tuition since 2013, and secondary school pupils since 2021. We’re passionate about maths tutoring and our mission is to make sure as many pupils as possible have access to high-quality online lessons from experienced tutors.
Teachers and parents want what’s best for their pupils and children. When it comes to maths, we believe that means choosing a maths programme that’s delivered by maths specialists. All of our experienced tutors have undergone specific training in delivering one-to-one maths tutoring to key stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils.
Our online lessons give pupils the opportunity to talk through maths questions and build key numeracy skills with their own personal mathematics teacher.
Tutors ask questions like 'how did you work that out?' and 'could you use any other methods?' to ensure pupils have understood the underlying maths behind each question, not just a quick way to find the answer.
One of the biggest things that holds maths students back is a lack of confidence to try. With Third Space Learning's maths tutors, pupils have a safe place to attempt questions, even if that means making a mistake.
Instilling this confidence early on leaves pupils better prepared as they continue their school journey and tackle things like entrance exams, GCSEs and A-level maths assessments.
Whilst maths success extends beyond getting good grades, practising exam techniques is a great way to help children feel confident for any upcoming tests.
Our online lessons are designed to make sure pupils fully understand each topic before moving onto applying that knowledge to exam-style questions, helping to build familiarity and confidence.
In maths, if pupils don't feel engaged with the lesson then they are more likely to switch off and lose concentration.
And in a class of 30, it's not always easy for teachers to give each pupil the individual attention they might need to succeed. With Third Space Learning, pupils have the full attention of one private maths tutor, working at their own pace, building a rapport and making each lesson as engaging as possible by linking it back to their hobbies and interests.
How much does maths tuition cost?
On average, one to one maths tuition from Third Space Learning works out at 50% cheaper than running one to one interventions with existing school staff. Exact pricing will depend on your school’s individual requirements.
Are your maths tutors qualified teachers?
All of our specialist maths tutors take part in our Global Tutor Training Programme. This provides specific training to deliver effective one-to-one maths tuition according to the English national curriculum.
What ages do you support?
Lessons are available for primary school pupils, pupils in year 7 with outstanding gaps from key stage 2, and GCSE students. Our GCSE maths programme launched in January 2021 and we hope to offer support for A-level maths in the near future.
Do you offer exam revision programmes?
We currently offer a specific key stage 2 SATs revision programme for both schools and parents. We have also launched a brand-new GCSE revision programme. For GCSE-level students, our maths programme is suitable for all exam boards; AQA, Edexcel and OCR.
Third Space Learning encourages children to talk about their maths. It enables them to think aloud with the tutor and this then transfers to their independent work. It gives children much more confidence in their own maths ability!
Class Teacher, Hindley All Saints CofE, Wigan
The children love Third Space and it really supports what they do in class, filling in their gaps in learning and building their confidence. The fact that children have to speak with their tutor and explain their reasoning, develops confidence and their use of mathematical vocabulary.

Third Space Learning gives individual children personalised attention to their needs to move their confidence and academic achievement in maths forward.

Nothing but excellence. A personal service with brilliant tutors all of whom my little girl loves. Such a positive maths experience.
I researched a number of online sites before engaging TSL for maths tuition for my granddaughter. I have no complaints - the admin side went very smoothly and her tutor has been professional and patient. When I needed to change the time of a session this was arranged quickly. Above all the price is very reasonable.
