Tutorfair launches Online Study Groups supported by Innovate UK

June 05, 2020 by Hannah
Image Tutorfair’s Online Study Groups Project has been selected by Innovate UK as one of the top business-led ideas to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to be working with Innovate UK to launch Online Study Groups over the next few months and to help make sure that lost learning due to school closures is recovered.  

Tutorfair’s Online Study Groups is a project designed to help tutors cater to the changing needs of students during the pandemic. In a world where most pupils are socially distanced at home and do not have exams as a focus for their studies, Online Study Groups will allow them to learn in small groups with high-quality private tutors delivering lessons tailored to them. Research has shown that small group tutoring is as effective as one-to-one learning. Working with friends and other students will also enable interaction and social engagement during the lockdown whilst being more affordable and accessible throughout the country than one-to-one tuition. 

“We’ve launched Online Study Groups to help students recover lost learning during lockdown. With the help of Innovate UK we hope small group lessons will enable more students to access affordable online tuition and learn with their friends while schools are closed,” says Tutorfair CEO Andrew Ground.

Work on the project will begin on June 1st and it will be fully built into the website by Autumn - however, we have already launched a pilot version of the project and there are groups to join now.  Online Study Groups will be running alongside our existing one-to-one and online tutoring offerings, as well as free weekly Maths GCSE lessons delivered by ‘super tutor’ Mark Maclaine. 

Online Study Groups will be offered for core subjects up to A-level - Maths, English and Sciences.  Over the summer we hope to see more and more students joining groups including other subjects and fun activities-based sessions for students across primary and secondary levels.  With Online Study Groups students can learn with friends and make sure they have covered the whole syllabus for this year or get ahead for next year.
