It’s a well-researched programme with a fantastic impact on our pupils’ maths learning. It helps tutors focus on the emotional side of each pupil as a learner and combines the child’s ability to do the maths with building their metacognition.”

If you get a question wrong, your tutor helps you to have another go and shows you how to do it. It’s fun!”

Why it matters

Children from economically deprived backgrounds are almost twice as likely to fail academically and be at risk of unemployment in the future. One-to-one tutoring has substantial positive effects on learning outcomes and thus improved opportunities especially for pupils from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Tutoring programmes conducted during school hours tend to have greater impact than those conducted after school.
