Primary School Tuition That Provides Results

Every child is unique and has their individual learning gaps and needs. This means, even for the most experienced class teachers, it can be challenging to meet every child’s needs in a class of 30.

Some pupils may require extra tuition to meet age-related expectations and close the attainment gap.

One to one tuition can be more effective in raising maths attainment than small group interventions where it may be difficult to target learning to the pupil’s individual needs.

Give your target pupils the personalised support they need with Third Space Learning's high-quality one to one online tuition.

"Third Space Learning's primary tuition is tailored to individuals which is so valuable and addresses their gaps. Something that is hard to do 100% successfully in a whole class environment."

Kate Kennedy, Wembdon St George's Church School

Why is primary school tuition so effective?

Tutoring at primary school is generally used either:

  • To plug gaps in the primary curriculum, secure understanding and build confidence in numeracy or English.
  • To accelerate a child’s learning with a personalised maths or English programme.

Supporting children through tutoring in their early years — Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 — results in a greater impact than leaving tutoring until secondary school. That’s why most schools who use Third Space Learning’s tutoring programmes begin at primary school age rather than waiting until GCSE or A level.

Join more than 3,900 schools across the UK using Third Space Learning’s personalised tutoring sessions. One to one sessions are tailored to the needs of individual learners to help raise their maths attainment and boost confidence.

"It's really helpful heading into Year 6 because now it means they have the confidence to go and try it, put their hands up and talk about maths which is very valuable. We've agreed interventions in Year 5 are a good thing as by Year 6 it's almost too late."

Why thousands of primary education specialists choose Third Space Learning

Third Space Learning’s model of primary school tuition has been carefully developed by a team of qualified primary school teachers and maths specialists over the past 10 years.

Each pupil has the opportunity to access online maths lessons in a safe space with their own personal qualified tutor. Learning in a one to one environment encourages mathematical conversations, participation and increases confidence.

Following a diagnostic assessment, pupils follow a bespoke sequence of lessons in line with the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 National Curriculum — aligned to each year group.

Online tuition aligns with pupils’ schoolwork. This helps to support teachers by reducing the extra workload one to one tutoring would create if they had to deliver sessions themselves.

Schools have the autonomy to choose which pupils they’d like to support. With most selecting pupils eligible for Pupil Premium, private tuition is no longer only an option for those that can afford a private tutor or home tutoring.

By working closely to plug gaps, secure core concepts and build confidence with their own personal tutor, pupils progress faster and, in turn, are better equipped for the challenges ahead, whether that’s entrance exams, secondary schools, grammar schools, GCSEs or A-levels.
