Primary School Tuition That Gets 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.

Why is primary school tuition so effective?

Primary School Tuition

It’s focused, targeted and immediate

Tutoring at primary school is best used as the gaps occur on a regular basis

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

Primary School Tuition

Earlier intervention addresses gaps fast

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.

The longer you leave it, the wider the gaps will become and the further behind a child is.

“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 for their year group in line with the Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 National Curriculum.

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 with their personal tutor to plug gaps, secure core concepts and build confidence, 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.

“After two terms of one to one tuition from Third Space Learning, not only did our pupils reach expected standard, but they doubled their scores in KS2 SATs.”
