Third Space Learning Testimonials

Children love Third Space, it really supports what they do in class. The fact they have to speak with their own primary school maths tutor and explain their reasoning helps to develop confidence and their use of mathematical vocabulary.

Third Space Learning Testimonials

How is a Third Space Learning primary school maths tutor different?

Unlike most tuition businesses, we don’t teach all subjects at all levels. We would not be your choice for a science tutor or an English tutor. Our tutors are specialists. They specialise purely in teaching primary school maths.

Pupils are taught a programme of curriculum maths lessons closely matched to the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 national curriculum. The tutors who teach this curriculum have been professionally trained and target each lesson directly to the needs of each pupil.

Tutors also work hard to build a rapport with their pupils, personalising the lesson to their ability and to their interests.

Here’s how our in schools maths tutoring works

Online maths interventions in primary schools

  1. Schools select their target pupils for one to one teaching. The majority of our primary schools use this private tuition to support pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.
  2. Pupils start with an online diagnostic assessment to identify learning gaps and we then recommend the most appropriate sequence of lessons for them (which teachers can agree to or override). All assessments lessons are in line with the National Curriculum.
  3. Each pupil receives their own personal Third Space tutor for weekly lessons in our online classroom. All tutors are background checked (DBS-equivalent) and go through an intensive period of training with us. During periods of school closures, home tuition is available.
  4. The pupil’s primary teacher in the classroom receives regular progress reports for each pupil to ensure that the work in the one to one lessons aligns with what’s happening at school. The reports also identify personal learning needs for each child in Maths and how Third Space is addressing them.
  5. Schools who sign up for the primary school tuition programme also receive full access for all staff to the Third Space Learning Maths Hub of maths mastery resources including Fluent in Five and White Rose Maths lesson slides.
