Our small group online tutorials are perfect for re-engaging students not learning in the classroom

Since 2018 we have been using our unique experiences of classroom teaching and working in mental health, to provide tuition for students not learning in the classroom. Our nurturing, small-group, online tutorials are ideal for hard to reach students, including those with low attendance, SEMH, ASC, anxiety and/or EBSA. We’re formally QA’d (City of York Council) and validated by our fabulous community (thanks for the reviews)…. Oh, and we’re very good value too!

I cannot recommend TLL sessions enough both Andy & Dave are amazing they are such genuine & enthusiastic teachers. My son who was not enjoying school & is currently being home schooled loves their lessons & he voluntarily logs in early to lessons to have a chat first! The joy. Their lessons are totally engaging & the children always get time to make comments, ask questions & really participate. I consider myself truly lucky to have found them.

When he was in school, he was overwhelmed by the sensory environment. In your lessons, though, it is very different. I am constantly so delighted to hear him asking questions, volunteering to answer, nodding away and raising his hand. You are doing a great job of not only teaching in a very engaging, informative and challenging way, but also of making my kid feel seen and valued. Thank you!

“I can highly recommend Tutor Led Learning. My son has thoroughly enjoyed his first 6 weeks with Tutors Andy & Dave. He has learnt so much in such a short space of time & it’s been lovely to see his excitement before and after each lesson. Huge thank you from both of us.
