Parents choose home-based tuition because of the convenience and personalised attention their children can get. However, 40% of home-based tutors are unaccredited, untrained and unfamiliar with the syllabus. Parents who are paying for such services are not getting the value for their money.
Tutate will provide a centralised system delivered using a digital platform, which affords tutors training, teaching resources and adaptive assessment content so that they can provide quality and convenient home-based tutoring.

Tutate will take on the role of a virtual school where parents will enrol their children. Payment, scheduling and content subscription will be made to us, and Tutate will take a commission per student enrolled. We have developed content partnership with 2 major Singapore assessment publishers, and will use such partnerships to grow locally and overseas. The platform will operate on a freemium model to provide free resources to users. The tutoring programme and other premium resources will only be available to paying users.
