Tutora is taking the UK's £6 billion strong industry online with an end-to-end service linking private tutors to students. Having launched their website in August 2015 their tutors have taught over 3,000 lessons.
The UK private tuition industry is large and growing with an estimated market value of £6bn annually in the UK, where a quarter of British children have received private tuition. Tutora aims to help parents find and book great private tutors online, and since launching in mid-2015, our tutors have taught over 3000 lessons, in subjects ranging from Maths and English to Spanish and Accounting. Founded by a Private Tutor and a Technology Investor, we are now seeking investment to build on our success and rapidly scale the business, both across the UK and internationally.
Our feedback from students suggests they are seeking expert, local tutors, who they can easily contact and book quickly. We believe Tutors are looking for new students to fill their timetable, help with collecting payments and an easy way to manage their business. Tutora meets all of these needs. Our website allows parents and students to view clear, informative profiles of the best tutors near them, message them for free, and book and pay for lessons. We believe a key aspect of our product is our ‘best match’ algorithm, ranking tutors based on a combination of factors we deem important and guiding students to the right tutor for them. Our site is free to join for tutors, who can create beautiful profiles within minutes. We handle all of the billing and scheduling for them, and pay our tutors directly into their bank accounts, protecting them in the case of cancellations.
