Meet Sophia

Education is evolving. Students think differently. Learning requires a new focus. Yet an out of date industry remains unchanged. Time for a paradigm shift.

Sophia is an EdTech company which connects fully vetted and verified tutors with clients seeking face-to-face home tuition via our intuitive on demand mobile app. We built Sophia to meet the needs of progressive clients and tutors living in a highly competitive, changing world.

This is Tutoring Reimagined.

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.
