Tutopiya, a Singapore-based education technology startup, has launched their full service to provide high-quality tutors to students six months after its soft launch. Incubated by Spaze Ventures, the company differs from other online tutoring platforms that merely connect students and tutors, with an emphasis on offering highly qualified tutors who have been rigorously vetted and comprehensively trained to teach online.

Tutopiya started from a student’s simple request to have online tuition at Marlborough College in Johor Bahru as he was boarded at the school. Having realised the options for teaching live online were limited, Nuha Ghouse Founder of Tutopiya embarked on a journey to provide students with the ultimate live online tuition solution, the best tutors combined with the best technology.

“There is a need for a service like Tutopiya, because there is a gap in the market for high quality online one-to-one tutoring. Our service is uniquely customisable according to each student’s exact needs,” said Nuha Ghouse, the former Imperial College, London First Class Graduate. “We offer students both extensive courses for PSLE, local GCE O & A Level syllabi and the IGCSE & IB syllabi offered in international schools across a wide range of subjects.”

Tutopiya has been successful in reaching 250 registered students in six months. Students from the ages of 8 to 18 sign up for regular personalised live individual lessons with a tutor in the comfort of their homes. Currently operating in eight markets including Singapore, China, UAE, Australia and the United States, Tutopiya has students from many prestigious international and local schools.

Tutopiya tutor Michelle Liew, a former MOE primary & secondary school teacher said, “Tutopiya offers an innovative platform for teaching and learning. I appreciate the ability to attach various media on the platform and use it to engage students. It provides for a very effective one-to-one experience”

Tutopiya is Singapore’s only online tutoring platform which vets tutors for you including language and communication skills tests, in-depth skill reviews, and online teaching competency tests. By hiring only the top teaching talent, Tutopiya has passionate tutors who have excelled academically and have had experience teaching in the Ministry of Education schools and International schools.

Focusing on making individual home tuition affordable and convenient, Tutopiya provides a free introductory individual 60 mins lesson for every student who signs up so they can experience the technology and teaching. Rates are affordable between S$15-45 per lesson and students have the flexibility to select lesson frequency and duration. By providing services which tuition centres and home tutors cannot provide, Tutopiya has a unique proposition for 30-minute regular lessons ideal for homework help and practice which reinforces concepts. All lessons are recorded for student’s revision, parental monitoring and for tutors’ self-review, with new features suchs instantaneous homework help capabilities—simply take a photo, upload it and write on it with your tutor’s assistance.
