Online Tutors

The Online Tutors team is a team of experienced teachers, pioneering online and offline tutoring in Kenya. For the past 4 years, we have been providing quality online and offline digital classroom services in addition to individual and collective tutoring to students in and out of schools.

In addition, we have been supporting teachers and schools with customized and ready to use classroom tools- a blend of ready-to-use demonstrations, summarized notes, video lessons, experiments, illustrations, puzzles, analogies, lessons, activities, and strategies.

During the last year, we have been piloting the approved Digital Learning Platform resources with a number of students with low access to Teaching, Learning and Assessment resources and, we have seen dramatic improvements in their academic attainments.
