London-based EdTech startup MyTutor has closed a £3m Series A to onboard new customers and enhance its platform.

Mobeus Equity Partners led the round, which also drew support from Clive Cowdery (Resolution Capital) and Thomas Hoegh (Arts Alliance).

MyTutor connects school pupils to ‘high-performing university’ students studying in the UK for one-on-one sessions.

Bertie Hubbard, the CEO and co-founder, commented on the news: “After decades of improvements to our understanding of how we teach and learn, there’s a clear opportunity for technology to drive innovation in education at a pace previously reserved to well-funded sectors such as healthcare, transport, and financial services.

“Parents and headteachers are clearly frustrated by the current state of the tuition industry, and this round of funding positions MyTutor to set a new standard,” Hubbard added.

MyTutor is currently available on desktop and iPad and supports a wide range of features including video chat, interactive whiteboard and file uploads.

The startup allows pupils to record their sessions so that they can be played back retrospectively and tutors are able to manage their bookings through its smartphone app.

With the money, MyTutor says it will seek to improve user experience and implement changes into the matching algorithm, to ensure that pupils and tutors are selected based on their individual interests and personalities.  

The startup claims to be working with more than 70 schools and universities in the UK, having delivered 100,000 tutorials in the past year.

MyTutor has raised £4.8m to date.
