Otta's take on sofatutor

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

All students flourish when they can learn at their own pace, but this can be difficult to achieve in a traditional classroom. This is what sofatutor is setting out to address with its online tuition platform.

The company offers students at school and university one-on-one online learning support in 15 subjects, ranging from mathematics to Latin. The main draw for students is the platform's flexibility and its unique 12 minute lesson format. Compared to traditional private tuition, sofatutor is faster, more convenient and cheaper.

In the fiercely competitive online tuition space, sofatutor finds an edge over rivals such as Tutorfair and MyTutor with its innovative learning materials, interface and class formats. Its strong product has certainly cemented sofatutor in the space, as it looks to further grow its team and operations into the future.
