The Telegraph introduces Telegraph Tutors
The Telegraph, today announced the launch of a new service, Telegraph Tutors in partnership with My Tutor. With nearly one third of British secondary school students having received extra curricular tuition last year, Telegraph Tutors offers parents peace of mind by reducing the time, hassle and cost of finding a subject expert locally.
The online database and teaching platform gives parents and students access to over 4,000 carefully-selected tutors, who are able to provide one-to-one support for GCSE and A Level students across all subjects. Understanding the parental desire for a tutor who is not just an expert in their subject area, but also someone who can inspire and motivate their child, the platform matches school pupils searching for a tutor with Russell Group university students looking for rewarding work.
Safety is at the heart of the Telegraph Tutors service. All tutors go through a careful selection process, with lessons taking place in an online digital classroom featuring a shared interactive whiteboard. By using video chat, tutor and student are able to build face-to-face rapport. Every live session is also recorded, so a parent can review it afterwards.
The real-time, one-to-one, online tutoring platform provides more flexibility than the traditional tutoring arrangement and allows parents to substitute expensive in-person tutors, for personalised online sessions with young, bright and successful undergraduates studying at the UK’s top universities.
The launch of Telegraph Tutors follows The Telegraph’s acquisition of Gojimo, the UK’s number one exam preparation app, earlier this year. Telegraph Tutors and Gojimo align with the company’s mission to create solutions to help people progress in life. Through Telegraph Tutors and Gojimo, The Telegraph can help support younger audiences through a crucial and stressful time.
Nicolas Gaertner, Managing Director of Commerce at The Telegraph, said “We’re excited to extend the Telegraph brand to the tutoring world and support the millions of UK students and parents who already engage with The Telegraph on a daily basis”.
