Sheffield start-up Tutora launch online tutoring platform

Sheffield start-up Tutora launch online tutoring platform

12 October 2017

Sheffield based Tutora, the UK’s fasting growing private tuition marketplace, has announced the launch of their Online Tutoring platform, designed to support thousands of self-employed tutors and students, nationwide.

The move by Totora to online tutoring signifies a momentous step for the Sheffield based start-up which straddles the tech, digital and education sectors.

Tutora was founded in Sheffield in 2015 by Scott Woodley and Mark Hughes. After spending time as a Primary School teacher, Scott was frequently asked by parents to recommend private tutors for their children. Frustrated with a lack of transparent, high-quality and trustworthy tutors, and realising that there were no real solutions available, the idea for Tutora was developed.

The high growth start-up has been working with Business Sheffield, the city’s free and confidential business support service, to develop and grow their offer.

Now, two years old, Tutora is one of the leading tuition services in the United Kingdom. Their Head Office is in Sheffield city centre where a team of 17 drive the nationwide operation.  With over 9000 tutors delivering thousands of lessons every week, Tutora has a user-base in excess of 50,000 students - from parents seeking help for their primary-aged children who are struggling to read, to physicists seeking help with their dissertations.

By continuing to innovate and build their platform, they are rapidly becoming the go-to marketplace for parents to find the perfect tutor across the UK.
