Online KS1 Maths Tutoring by Experienced & Qualified Primary School Teachers

The national curriculum defines the educational content that children should learn by a particular age. It does this by defining “key stages” of learning and Key Stage 1 is the first, defining the basic skills that teachers should instil in children before the age of 8. As such, it forms the lesson plans for 5 to 7-year-olds. Although Key Stage 1 is the simplest, it is also the most important because children need those foundational skills to tackle everything that comes after.

In reality, few children master everything taught in Key Stage 1 (or KS1) before their lessons start moving on to Key Stage 2 maths. In the first place, children have to be taught together in the same class even though their ages vary. Add in a few sick days or teacher oversights and there may be significant gaps in their learning regardless as to their ability.

Mathematics is all about problem-solving, so when children learn KS1 maths, the skills they learn and the confidence they acquire serves them in countless other ways throughout life. Sadly, the reverse is also true: a deficit in KS1 maths can leave a child at a disadvantage for a lifetime. It is important for all children to achieve competence at key stage one and preferably to excel at it, but maximising the achievement of every child in a classroom setting is virtually impossible. Fortunately, modern technology makes it possible to do better because you can also find KS1 maths tutors online.

A professional key stage 1 maths tutor won’t just drill your child with mathematical rules and tables. It is even more important to communicate the beauty and wonder that lies inside the magic of shapes and numbers. Solving problems shouldn’t seem like a chore, but an exciting puzzle that it is enjoyable to solve. Inspiring students in this manner will overcome any learning deficits, especially so in KS1 maths. Although the national curriculum dictates the skills needed, choosing the best method is up to the teacher. That is why we insist that every key stage 1 maths tutor we engage has a proven teaching track record. In particular, we ensure a perfect match between each pupil and tutor and help monitor the success of the methods and lesson plans they adopt.


Suzanne is really helping to increase my son’s confidence in maths. Her manner is very positive and she gives lots of positive reinforcement. She is calm, constructive and willing to adapt her lesson to the needs of the child


My daughter has progressed significantly in just 4 weeks. Her confidence with maths is improving so quickly. Would definitely recommend to others who are struggling and need a boost in confidence.


The initial communication from Principal Tutors was swift and efficient.  The maths tutor was allocated to my son within a couple of days and we have found her to be excellent.  My son enjoys his tutor lessons with her.  Her support has helped him so much already (after a few lessons) and his confidence in mathematics has grown greatly in that time.  Her communication with me as a parent has also been excellent. Thank you Principal Tutors – we are so glad we found you!!!!!

Unlock Your Child’s Full Potential with Online KS1 Maths Tutoring by Principal Tutors

Working with KS1 maths tutors online greatly extends the choice of tutors while reducing the cost. Online tuition allows us to bring you the very best teachers regardless of their location and hence brings that extra help into the reach of every youngster. Today’s youngsters are already fluent in the use of computers and often use them in the classroom. Private tuition for KS1 maths simply ensures that your child has the tutor’s full attention and enables the tutor to tailor their approach for every child.

The elements of KS1 maths include; numeral place value, whole number counting, linking words and numbers and words and shapes, the four basic operations (+-×÷), equality, length, breadth and width, volume, weight, money, time, fractions, graphs, patterns, angles, tables and solving “real world” word problems. Inevitably, each child has their own strengths and weaknesses and therefore needs help and practice in different areas. Tutors, too, are often better at teaching particular areas which is why our expert matching between learners and teachers is so valuable.

How do I find a Good KS1 Maths Tutor?

Lesson plans must be versatile to succeed because this is in the very nature of maths itself. Each component subject within maths does not stand alone from the others. In fact, learning to relate and translate between them is the key to mastering maths and then applying it in the real world. KS1 maths provides all the elements your child needs for more sophisticated problem solving later in life.

All the online lessons we organise can be recorded at your request so you and your child can re-watch them later, and any questions you may have are always dealt with by fully qualified teachers in our support team.

Submit your details and we will assign you a qualified teacher within 24-48 hours
