Tutorful, a Sheffield-based edtech platform, has announced that it raised £3 million in funding led by Mercia’s Northern Venture Capital Trust (VCT) funds and NPIF – Mercia Equity Finance.
Founded in 2015, Tutorful is an edtech platform that helps parents and students find online tutors easily. The platform has over 11,000 registered tutors covering more than 300 subjects. Around 70 percent of its users are children, others are adults.
Mark Hughes, co-founder and CEO, said: “Online learning now plays a key role in education, but nothing can replace the benefits of one to one tuition."
Tutorful will use the funds to enhance its platform, expand into more international markets and create more jobs at its Sheffield headquarters.
