learning

How can we make personalized education to be affordable and accessible to everyone?

This is the fundamental question that informs everything from product to marketing. We believe the best forms of education revolve around the learner's unique needs, interests and style.

How do we make high-quality education more personalized and radically affordable for learners of all ages—from preschoolers to adults? How can we help equip them with the skills they need to thrive in school and life?

teaching

How might we best support, motivate and empower great teachers?

For people to learn, they need great teachers. Africa is facing a severe shortage of teachers - requiring nearly 20 million new teachers by 2030 to meet its learning needs.

How do we make teaching prestigious and attractive? How can we equip our family of teachers with the best tools to teach effectively and motivate them to give their best? How do help them become financially stable and respected?

growth

What new learning opportunities can we create for teachers and learners using technology?

When Tuteria started, we made it possible to hire teachers for almost anything - from photography to cooking, languages and even sports! We've helped learners explore their passions, and created exciting businesses for teachers.

What other opportunities can technology make possible for teachers in Africa? Which new frontiers would learners pursue, if they had better access to learn what they care about? How can we accelerate mastery of 21st-century skills?

company

How do we build a business with a heart that attracts and grooms the best talents?

There's this notion that a business must be ruthless to succeed. We think there's a better way. One where Tuteria is successful, because we've helped our teammates and customers succeed. We want our teammates and customers to be happy.

What are the best ways to attract, invest in and retain exceptional talents? How best can we support their personal and professional growth to help them succeed at work and life?
