James Grant is MyTutor’s Co-founder and Managing Director, Schools.
It’s hard to find the right expertise locally, so MyTutor matches school pupils to high performing university students through an online lesson space. Live one-to-one tutorials are also recorded, so pupils can replay sessions to aid revision.
MyTutor has delivered 250,000 lessons, partnered with 300 schools, and last year pupils made an average improvement of +1.0 grades in their tutored subjects vs. +0.5 in non-tutored subjects in just a term.
James started his career founding events company Ice Breaker, before joining the Chief of Staff team at Barclays. He was included in last year’s Forbes 30 under 30 class, and is a governor at Wapping High School in London. He spends his spare time playing football, writing, reading about high-performance and performing occasional DJ sets.
