Tutor & Course, the first all-in-one eLearning language platform was successfully tested and launched this fall.
Co-founders of Tutor & Course made a decision to assign an experienced tutor as the CEO to build a business strategy focusing on students’ and tutors’ experience and needs.
Students will be able to get 100% individual guidance from their tutors that will lead to a more efficient studying process. Courses and lessons are designed for job seekers, professionals, and expats.
This approach will position Tutor & Course as the leading language eLearning solution for professionals in Europe.
The courses of the platform include Job Interview Preparation (in English or Swedish), IELTS preparation, English for Digital Marketing, Legal English, English for Interior Designers, etc.
The study process will be supervised by tutors that are familiar with specific topics and are able to mentor students.
“There were 2 aspects to consider in online education that made me question its effectiveness. First, the quality of courses available on platforms where everyone can share their knowledge. Not all, but a lot of courses are made fast, giving basic data about something in order to be a part of the mainstream. Secondly, the original idea of independent learning was lost thanks to the overrated self-study process. If the person wants to learn something, it’s essential to analyze their progress, give a little direction or change approach when needed. We live in an era where everything is personalized as every person is unique. That’s why I find it logical to offer private flexible courses based on professional needs," Oona Tiihonen, Co-Founder & CEO.
There are thousands of platforms offering language courses, most of them have general topics. In a highly competitive market, Tutor & Course has chosen one of the most difficult niches: job-oriented courses for people with intermediate level and higher.
The company claims to be one of the first high-end digital products for professionals studying English or other European languages.
The industry of online education has grown by more than 900% since 2000. The key mission of Tutor & Course is to keep the original purpose of studying and its quality during the boom.
“As seasoned tutors, we were obsessed with this idea to make a change in private lessons, make them more up-to-date and personalized. It’s not about teaching a language, it’s about giving students one of the most important tools which they will definitely use in their career,” emphasizes Oona.
Beta platform Tutor & Course was launched on 21st October 2019.
