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 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 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 during school closures?
Provided children at home have access to a laptop and headset then their weekly online maths tuition 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.
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!

The one to one tuition is a great addition to our support for pupils receiving Pupil Premium, and the resources are high quality and up to date with recent research.

The resources on the Maths Hub are great, the sessions for the children are good and they enjoy them. The one to one sessions have been very good and have helped the children to progress with their maths.
Headteacher, Choppington Primary School, Northumberland
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.
Headteacher, St Pauls Middle School , Northumberland
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.
