Why is primary school tuition so effective? 

Tuition at primary school is generally used for one of two purposes:

  1. to plug gaps that have emerged, consolidate understanding and build confidence in maths or English.
  2. to accelerate a child’s learning with a more personalised programme of maths or English lessons.

The earlier a child can be supported in their learning the greater the impact of the tuition – which is why we recommend starting at primary school age rather than waiting till GCSE or A level.

Private tuition is a popular choice for many schools and parents because lessons can be targeted entirely to each individual child’s gaps. According to studies by the leading educational research centre the Education Endowment Foundation, one to one tuition can add up to 5 months’ progress to a child’s learning.

Why thousands of schools and parents choose Third Space Learning

The Third Space Learning model of primary school tuition has been developed over several years. Each pupil connects to their own personal qualified teacher who has been specially trained to teach online maths lessons to children from 5 to 12 years old.

Over several weeks a child will then follow a bespoke sequence of lessons following the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 national curriculum.

For pupils receiving the private tutoring while at school, their programme of lessons will continue all term, adapting to the requirements of their year group and needs. For example in Year 6, their schoolwork and tuition will be designed to prepare them for the national SATs tests in May.

For pupils working with our maths teachers at home, they can have as many or as few maths lessons as they like each week; scaling up their online tuition as necessary, for example in advance of secondary school entrance exams or should we experience future school closures.

Individual attention

In a class of 30 at school it can be difficult for primary school teachers to provide individual support to the pupils who need it most. Our community of tutors is 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.

Developing key skills

Our online maths 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.

Practising in context

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 building familiarity and confidence.

Regular feedback and reports

IBecause all our online lessons are one-to-one, our maths 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.

Primary school tuition: How it works with Third Space Learning

We are the largest provider of primary school tuition to schools in the UK, and have helped over 60,000 children to improve their maths results and their confidence over the past 6 years. Headteachers choose us as we are the most affordable and effective option to raise standards in maths.

Until recently parents have still been restricted by the tutoring services available in their local area, paying £30-50 an hour for a tutor. To solve this, we’ve recently launched Third Space Learning at home which allows parents to access our online primary education programmes with our trained primary tutors from £9.99 a week.

Here is how our in schools and at home maths programmes work:

Online maths interventions in primary schools

  1. Schools choose which pupils they’d like to support with one to one teaching. The majority of our primary schools use the tuition to support pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.
  2. Pupils start with an online diagnostic assessment to identify learning gaps and identify the most appropriate sequence of lessons.
  3. Each pupil receives their own personal Third Space Tutor for weekly lessons in our online learning environment. All tutors are background checked (DBS-equivalent) and undergo our high-quality training programme. Many of them are already experienced teachers before they join us.
  4. Teachers receive regular progress reports to understand pupil progress and inform their own in class planning and teaching.
  5. Schools also receive full access for all staff to the Third Space Learning Maths Hub of primary level resources. This includes a full mastery scheme of learning, ready to go lesson slides aligned with White Rose, Fluent in Five, Rapid Reasoning, CPD videos for all staff and much more.
