    What We Do

    We are a diverse team of engineers, entrepreneurs and teachers, who believe that every child, irrespective of background, wealth or location, should have individual access to teaching that will inspire a love of learning and help them reach their potential.

    We build intelligent technology that connects a global community of online tutors to thousands of students in schools across the UK, to provide extra help for children at risk of social or academic failure.

    Having proven our model, raised £6m and worked with thousands of pupils delivering over 100,000 hours of 1-1 tutoring through our platform, we are pursuing very ambitious plans to expand both our scale and scope. We’re looking for top talent like you to join our team and help us achieve our vision.

    Our technology

    Our virtual classroom deals with some of the most complicated firewalls and network configurations on a daily basis.. not easy! But, we still love to delight and deliver a great experience for our pupils.

    Our ultimate aim is to be the world leader in online teaching.

    Major upcoming projects include:

    Analytics: We have a 5TB archive of recordings which needs to be managed and mined to optimise the learning. This includes data processing (Hadoop, Spark etc), AI, machine learning, voice analytics, statistical analysis etc.

    Mobile: We are expanding our platform to fully support mobile touch based devices. We are exploring Native iOS/Android, web (HTML5) and hybrid (Cordova etc) development options.

    Classroom: We need to deliver real time data reliably over heavily protected school networks with minimal configuration and would like to ensure schools have no setup.
