Third Space Learning's programme of online maths tuition achieves outstanding success for pupils aged 5 to 12 by delivering a tutoring experience that is both fun and targeted to the needs of each child.
The online tutoring is professionally run, the children enjoy it and we are seeing progress. It is a hit with teachers, pupils and parents.

All our fantastic maths tutors are trained exclusively to deliver online lessons in maths; they are not switching from face-to-face, or maths to English. They are pure maths specialists working every day teaching maths lessons in our online classroom.
As the largest UK provider of one to one tutoring in maths, we have taught pupils of all ability levels; some may have major gaps identified by a school, others just need a confidence boost or to brush up on key concepts.
Whatever their requirements, each child will be taught a personalised sequence of lessons by a professional tutor so that the child can work through the maths at their own pace.
Real-time screen sharing and an interactive whiteboard enable tutor and pupil to communicate freely in the virtual classroom. All you need is an internet connection. No webcam or video chat is used in order that both pupil and their online maths tutor focus purely on the lesson activities. This improves both pupils’ concentration and learning experience.
Unlike Skype which is used by a lot of maths tutoring companies, our online classroom is specifically designed for a learning experience and provides learners and tutors with all of the tools necessary to ensure the best online tuition possible.
Maths underpins so many subjects taken at GCSE and A level and is used in so many jobs and general life skills that it is imperative that all children leave school with a solid understanding of maths and how it works.
We all use maths every day, whether it's shopping, at work, calculating interest or mortgage payments, planning your pension, retirement plans, or simply problem-solving.
The Education Endowment Foundation, a government funded body, highlighted one to one maths intervention programmes delivered by experienced tutors and qualified teachers as having the potential for the largest immediate impact on attainment.
We've worked closely with schools and school leaders to create a high impact programme, which is now available for schools and parents.
Whether you are looking to plug misconceptions, address gaps in children's knowledge, or to build children's confidence or effort in school, or are more concerned with getting better grades or homework help at home, we can help.
We've worked with pupils from all over the country to create personalised learning programmes for every learner.
What are the safeguarding precautions for online maths tuition?
All Third Space Learning maths tutors have received multiple checks as part of their recruitment process, including ensuring they have a DBS or DBS equivalent.
How much training do the online maths tutors receive?
Working with the Institute of Education at UCL we have developed a bespoke programme of initial and regular maths teacher training in both online learning and online teaching following the National Curriculum for maths.
Do you offer secondary school exam revision programmes?
We are launching a brand new GCSE maths revision programme in January to support GCSE-level and IGCSE students studying all exam boards; AQA, Edexcel and OCR. Already we offer a specific Key Stage 2 SATs revision programme. We are not able to support further maths preparation at this stage.
What happens to the online maths tuition during school closures?
Provided children at home have access to a laptop and headset then their weekly private tuition sessions can continue as normal. During the Covid 19 pandemic in the summer of 2020 Third Space continue to provide weekly online lessons to both our school and at home students ensuring that children did not fall further behind in maths.
This has really made a difference to our students. They have been motivated by a different way of learning than in the classroom. Their level of understanding is assessed and then built upon with lots of positive reinforcement. One to one programmes tailored to the individual needs of the child is time very well spent!
Class Teacher, Cameley CofE VC Primary School
It really has been money well spent! The children that are working with you have grown in confidence and are thoroughly enjoying Third Space online. They have made such a lot of progress since the intervention.

Builds confidence, develops reasoning skills through talk, is a safe environment for children to become confident in making mistakes – leading to increased resilience. The children enjoy working with their tutors focusing on specific skills in a fun and different way.
Deputy Head, Mount Nod Primary School, Coventry
The tutors are great. My kids like the method and approach to lessons. If they fail to understand something, the tutor then breaks down his method in order to explain concepts. This is all done visually on-screen where both Tutor and pupil can interact simultaneously.
TSL has really helped with my daughter's confidence in Maths. We love being able to have a tutorial at a time that suits us from the comfort of home, without it costing the earth. The tutor works through the material at a pace that suits my daughter. I really like being able to see what she has covered in the lesson. I wish I had found it sooner!
