Don't just take our word for it...

Very effective – 15 minute bursts of help maintained Izzy's focus and it was not too much following a day at school. Tutor was excellent and very supportive.
The tutor was fantastic with my son and he really enjoyed their sessions. He has gone from not liking maths as a subject to thoroughly enjoying it. His teacher has commented on the same.
We particularly like the 'flag' buttons. So if my daughter was struggling on a certain area, the tutor could spot this and then tailor the sessions accordingly.

Let us answer your questions

PLYTIME has everything you need in one place, giving you the flexibility to choose the just right level of support for your child.

There may be times where you just need access to the PLYTIME Learning platform for practice and self learning, and other times where you need the additional support of a 1-to-1 maths tutor with FOCUS Tutoring®. We make it easy for you to build the right package for your child and then increase or decrease your support, all at the click of a button.

PLYTIME is ideal for all students – for those who are ahead or want to be at the top, for students who are behind or want to catch up and for all students in between. 

And PLYTIME subscriptions are perfect if you want to maintain steady progress with a little extra support, if you want more support to improve more quickly, or if you want to improve rapidly and push harder to reach your potential

It’s designed for anyone who wants additional maths tutoring support to help them be their BEST

We use sophisticated algorithms and machine learning, together with any input from dedicated tutors, to ensure that every student automatically receives content that is appropriate to their needs and level of ability.  As students improve they move through the curriculum at their own pace.

FOCUS Tutoring® is a new way to get dedicated 1-to-1 support, in 15-minute chunks.

This ties in with research into how concentration diminishes over time and short focused periods of attention can be far more effective than longer session. It’s the same reason why TED talks are kept below 18 minutes – one optimal unit of attention span!  You would be surprised what you can achieve in 15 minutes. 

Research with Manchester Metropolitan University proved that shorter maths tutoring sessions are 25% more effective than traditional longer sessions.

It’s also incredibly flexible and many of our students and tutors find it is so much easier to fit a 15 minute session into their busy schedule.

With FOCUS Tutoring® you can build a tutoring package that’s right for your child – you can spread sessions out across the week or join together into longer sessions.  Powered by our intelligent software and question reviews, your dedicated tutor will know exactly where to focus their effort to make the tutoring sessions effective and efficient and help your child to be their best. 

There is no better time to start helping your child to be their best in primary maths than now.

But don’t take our word for it – take advantage of our limited free taster week to see the benefits for yourself. There are no tie-ins and you can cancel your subscription at any time.

As the Chinese proverb says “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
