Our mission is to make one-to-one tutoring accessible to everyone, not just the lucky few.
We are a team of teachers, parents and technologists, based in London, who all understand both the emotional and academic value of one-to-one tuition.
We know that structured feedback and encouragement from an expert tutor is one of the best ways to build academic confidence and curiosity in our children.
So, we have built Matr to make one-to-one tuition affordable and convenient for busy parents, and fun and engaging for children.
We’re built on strong foundations
Our history started in UK primary schools in 2013, supporting teachers with online one-to-one maths tuition, as part of the school timetable, helping to reinforce their classroom teaching… and the feedback was brilliant!
“We love the difference it has made to our children's confidence in tackling their maths problems.”
Maths Leader, New Scotland Hill Primary School
Growing in partnership with schools across the UK
Since then we have worked with thousands of teachers, and tens of thousands of pupils, to deliver our online one-to-one maths teaching.
Every term we receive feedback from classrooms across the country to ensure our online one-to-one tutoring is best in class and aligned with National Curriculum teaching strategies.
With a focus on evidence and best practice
We have now delivered over 500,000 hours of online tuition. This experience, and the evidence behind it, has allowed us to clearly demonstrate how effective our online tuition is.
In a trial with Rising Stars, pupils made on average 7 months progress in just 14 weeks.
Rising Stars is the leading Maths publisher in the UK primary school sector, used in 11,000 schools
Supported by world leaders in the education sector
As we have grown, we have established a research partnership with the world’s leading teacher training organisation - UCL’s Institute of Education - to help us ensure that our online tutors receive the best training possible, to ensure your children receive the best tuition.
