Company Description:

The first was started in 2013 and has since enabled 50,000+ children to be taught in 1800+ schools across the UK by 1,000+ tutors across India and Sri Lanka. They have a team of 30+ in London, focused on marketing, technology, and analytics.

Established in November 2018, the second platform offers one-to-one maths tuition online to children at home delivered by a tutor community teaching from India.
