Online maths tutor FAQs
What is the best online maths tutoring programme?
We believe Third Space Learning is the best online maths tutoring programme because it combines our many years of experience teaching maths online with the power of technology to connect expert maths teachers with the children in the UK who need support. We are also 100% focused on the needs of primary and secondary schools that follow the national curriculum for KS2, KS3, and KS4 maths. We don’t provide private maths tutors for home zoom tutoring sessions, all our lessons take place using an online whiteboard in our own dedicated online classroom, and we don’t teach any other subjects such as Physics or English.
Are online tutors worth it?
Online tutors are definitely worth it if you can get a personalised one to one tuition session from a qualified teacher or specialist tutor with good teaching experience. In fact they have lots of benefits over other kinds of tutors such as face to face or group tutors. For a start you have a much wider range of tutors available to you and instead of just being reliant on an intervention lead in your school or the tutors who can travel to you. It is also often easier to provide multiple tutors online at the same time. Online tutors supported by training and a structured sequence of lessons can provide a much more targeted and focused tuition session for learners than a one off in person tutor.
How much does a maths tutor cost in the UK?
A maths tutor in the UK can range from approximately £20 per hour to £60 per hour or more. Using online maths tutors from Third Space Learning is on average about 50% cheaper than running one to one interventions with existing school staff - and is the most affordable DfE-approved one to one tutoring provider. As a DfE-approved Tuition Partner, schools can use their National Tutoring Programme to cover up to 60% of the cost of tutoring. Depending on your school’s contract, this means your school will have to cover less than £8.40 per pupil per session. Many schools use their Pupil Premium budget for this.
Do you offer A level maths tutors?
At the moment we are only able to offer online maths tuition to children studying at Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Our experienced tutors (all with enhanced DBS checks and a Police Clearance Certificates) are given a programme of maths tutor training to enable them to work with primary school pupils who may be preparing for SATs or entrance exams. Then our GCSE maths tutors are available to support secondary students preparing for GCSE / iGCSE level exams. Lessons are suitable for all major exam boards and matched against OCR, AQA and Edexcel syllabus. Unfortunately we are unable to provide maths and physics tutors, A level maths tutors, English tutors or indeed preparation for Further Maths at this stage.
