About Sophia Technologies

Meet Sophia

Sophia is a UK based EdTech pioneer, bringing on-demand private tuition and online education options to clients both in the UK and from around the world.

Founded in 2018 by a team who share over 48 years of educational leadership, management and teaching experience, 
we promote confidence and convenience without compromising on safety or quality of education.


This is Education Reimagined.

Our Private Tutors are fully vetted by educational professionals who have spent their careers working as Headteachers within outstanding schools in the independent school sector and like you, are parents who want the best for their children.  

Sophia offers both face to face Home Tuition in London and online tuition for our globally based clients.  Sessions can be booked via our convenient web based portal or via the Sophia On Demand Mobile App.    

Our professional tutors have been handpicked, are fully vetted and verified to the highest standards of Safer Recruitment in Education and share our passion for education.   

In 2020, in response to parental demand for our virtual school lessons, Sophia launched our full time online school, Sophia High School, offering the best in remote home learning for students from Year 1 through to Year 9, following the UK National Curriculum.

Our Philosophy: The future of tuition

Led by leaders in education, Sophia challenges the status quo by bringing best practice in safer recruitment in education to a largely unregulated industry. We offer leading insurance cover for all sessions booked via the Sophia App as part of our commitment to safeguarding. The power to set an entire industry free is at your fingertips.

Our educational philosophy is rooted in empowering students to reach their full potential as they grow from the learners of today into the leaders of the future. We connect students that seek to be inspired with tutors that love sharing knowledge in order to develop self belief, curiosity, well-being and confidence in all our learners. Staff wellness? No problem. Our K9 Team Leaders have got us covered.
