A message from Jimmy and Roy, the people behind the vision

We believe that no student should have to face their challenges alone
Co-founders Roy and Jimmy

Looking back at our time in school, we were frustrated at how much time we wasted.

We both excelled in our studies, completing engineering degrees with first class honours. However, we always felt like we could have accomplished so much more.

If only there was an older version of ourselves that we could talk to, someone that truly understood what we were going through, we would have been able to learn and grow faster.

From our own experiences tutoring dozens of students, we saw firsthand the amazing impact that the right mentor can make. We were proud to see our students become who they were meant to be.

We want every student to have that same opportunity.

We started off in New Zealand (sorry!) in 2014 and since then have helped over 5,000+ students achieve their goals. We're now bringing our experience, philosophy, and passion to Australia so we can impact even more students.

This is our team

We're a company that's out to make an impact in the world. Every day, we strive to become better versions of ourselves, and to help others to do the same.

We're proud of the team and the culture that we've built, and we're energised to come in to the office each day to work towards our mission.

Sophie

sophie@mytuition.au

Sophie is from the UK and completed the Cambridge curriculum along with her BA (Hons) degree in International Business back in England before travelling to New Zealand.

At MyTuition, Sophie facilitates the connection between students and tutors and her love for helping others means she is able to provide that extra support to help students achieve their full potential.

Outside of MyTuition, Sophie volunteers as an ESOL tutor and is working toward her goal of becoming a teacher.

When asked to describe herself in a word, Sophie would say hardworking, although the team would have to disagree when it comes to going to the gym…

Kahn

kahn@mytuition.au

Kahn graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Psychology and Sociology at University. He volunteers at helpline agencies in his spare time, and is working towards his dream of becoming a psychologist.

Using his insight from studying the social sciences (and his experience as a tutor), Kahn helps the tutor community flourish by running workshops, sourcing resources and developing events. Enjoying interacting with all kinds of people, he is in a perfect position to empower and mentor both students and tutors, helping them become better versions of themselves.

Often being asked if he can read minds, Kahn will admit that he can't, then again that doesn't stop him from trying.

Roy

roy@mytuition.au

Roy is fluent in 25 different programming languages that nobody else can understand; naturally he graduated from University with a degree in Software Engineering (first class honours).

As an IT genius, he spends his time building great software for MyTuition as well as working part time at Datacom, an international yet locally owned software development company.

After spending an extraordinary amount of time trying to come up with a witty closing line that non-tech people can understand, Roy gave up and is using this sentence instead.

jimmy

jimmy@mytuition.au

Jimmy graduated from University with a Civil Engineering degree (first class honours), and originally worked as a structural engineer at Parsons Brinckerhoff. Wanting to make more of an impact in the world, he left the company to found MyTuition where he could better use his skills and his passions.

He's passionate about building amazing teams to tackle difficult problems that will help make the world a better place.

To the dismay of his parents, Jimmy refuses to consider returning to his prestigious engineering job and insists on focusing all his energy into improving and growing MyTuition.
