Third Space Learning's high quality online tuition is proven to help children succeed in maths. Used and recommended by thousands of teachers and parents across the UK.
It enables pupils to have a concentrated time with an individual tutor. I notice how focused these children are within their sessions when in class they are so easily distracted.

According to studies by the Education Endowment Foundation, one-to-one tuition is one of the best ways to boost pupil progress in maths.
Having a high-quality teacher giving a pupil their full attention provides the opportunity for individual learning at each pupil’s own pace, helping to ensure they’ve understood each topic before moving on to the next.
At primary school, when pupils are learning lots of new concepts for the first time, one-to-one support reduces the risk of pupils falling further behind if they don’t quite understand a topic. At secondary school and as pupils move up through GCSEs and onto A-levels, one-to-one tuition gives pupils the time to take on everything they’re learning and prepare for the challenges ahead.
However, traditional one-to-one learning is often expensive and difficult to organise.
That’s where Third Space Learning’s online one-to-one tuition comes in.
With online tuition from Third Space Learning, pupils connect with their own personal high-quality maths tutor in our interactive one-to-one learning environment. All of our tutors are specially trained to deliver the English National Curriculum to Key Stage 2 and 3 pupils, helping to boost progress, improve numeracy skills and build each child’s confidence.
In a class of 30 it can be difficult for teachers to provide individual support to the pupils who need it most.
Our community of private tutors are on hand to provide pupils with focused, one-to-one attention when and where they need it. Tutors are trained to spot and address misconceptions as they occur, helping to boost pupil progress more quickly.
Children often lack the confidence to speak up when they don't understand something in class or even in small group tuition sessions.
Our tutors are specially trained to ask questions and provide subtle prompts, helping to create a more relaxed learning space where they feel comfortable giving it a go, even if they make a mistake.
All of our pupils start with an initial assessment to understand their individual knowledge gaps and where they need most help.
Pupils receive the same maths tutor for each lesson, allowing tutors to build up an understanding of each pupil's learning to ensure a completely personalised online course of learning. When learning is personalised, pupils feel more engaged too!
Because all our online lessons are one-to-one, tutors can provide real-time feedback to help pupils understand where they might have gone wrong and discuss strategies for reaching the correct answer.
Parents and teachers can also access regular reports to understand where children are making good progress and which concepts still need more work.
One-to-one learning aims to ensure pupils have understood the underlying maths behind each question, not just the quickest or easiest ways to reach the right answer.
Our tutors discuss each question with their pupil, exploring why a particular strategy might be more effective than another or why an answer is what it is.
With one-to-one tuition, you're in control of how your pupils or children are learning. If the tutor's not quite right or the timing doesn't work with your schedule, you can change it.
Here at Third Space Learning, we work with schools and parents to ensure our online courses work with their pupils, budgets goals and schedules.
Teachers and parents are often put off one-to-one tuition due to the cost, but if it means pupils progress more quickly and are more engaged than with small group tuition, you may find it more cost-effective in the long run.
With online courses and online tuition such as Third Space Learning, the cost is also significantly lower than you would pay for face-to-face tuition.
One to one learning is difficult to fit into already busy school timetables, especially at secondary school. Even small group tuition can prove challenging for schools to provide. It’s also often delivered by Teaching Assistants who might not necessarily be maths specialists, but finding the budget for a specialist full-time maths teacher to deliver high-quality tuition is almost impossible to even for the most well-funded schools
For parents, private tuition can be expensive, with some private tutors charging up to £50 per one-hour session. For those who have found an affordable tutor, it’s often difficult to fit this in with busy after school schedules.
With online tuition, lessons are more flexible, easier to organise and much more affordable. Third Space Learning’s online tuition takes place at a day and time that suits you best, schedules can easily be changed or delayed and prices start from just £9.99 per lesson. For schools, up to 15 pupils can receive a personalised one-to-one lesson at once, making it much easier to fit into the school day.
Third Space fills in little gaps that can really hold children back. The customer service is fantastic every time and they couldn't be more helpful. The children love doing Third Space and their confidence rockets!

My staff love the resources and are helpful to their teaching and assessment. Most importantly, the impact upon learning for the pupils receiving the one to one lessons is highly effective. It’s such great support to teaching and learning.

Children are thoroughly enjoying their sessions and the resources we have access to are great. I have already recommended the intervention to a friend teaching at another school.
