Leading digital platform for online private tutoring in the UK

The schoolchildren receive great one-to-one support, parents and teachers see improved educational outcomes, and the tutors beneﬁt from work they can ﬁt around their degrees.
Mobeus originally invested £2 million into MyTutor in 2017. Since then, the company has grown rapidly and Mobeus led a £5 million round in June 2018. In 2020, Mobeus led a £4 million Series B that brought the total funding raised to date by the Company to £14 million.
MyTutor will use the funding to invest in sales and marketing, to further develop its excellent technology platform and to expand its team.
Since the onset of COVID-19, MyTutor has seen demand scale rapidly as families and schools have had to embrace online learning. They anticipate this demand will continue, to help children in all years get back on track and to stop children falling behind.
“There is an urgent need to ensure all children get back on track with their education. Through our consumer-facing platform and partnerships, such as the National Tutoring Partnership, we know that we can reduce learning gaps. The pandemic has seen a whole generation of parents see the beneﬁts of online tuition and we believe this is just the start of a more permanent shift.”
