Robert Grabiner

Founder

After trying and struggling to find tutors for his two children, Robert decided to set up a site offering affordable online tuition with bright undergraduate tutors. He left a life working as a Senior Banking Technologist and set up MyTutor in 2012. Since then has undertaken most roles in the company: interviewing tutors, testing the website, and (most enjoyably) helping parents find tutors for their own children. Robert currently focuses on steering the overall vision and values of the business, and oversees the development of the website and all technology matters.

Bertie is a maths-geek; co-founder of MyTutor; and the man responsible for making the platform easier for you to use. He studied (you guessed it) Maths at Durham where he was often found helping his peers with their work. Bertie feels passionately about making one-to-one help accessible and, after a couple of years in finance, returned to the world of education by co-founding MyTutor. In his (little) spare time, he plays tennis, kite-surfs and uses MyTutor to learn Spanish.

James Burton

Analytics

After finishing his Physics Masters at Durham University, James knew he wanted to put his problem solving mind to good use and jumped straight into the world of analytics and big data. He spent the following few years honing his (admittedly geeky) skill-set at Dunnhumby and BCG; balancing that with a healthy dose of climbing and running along the way. He now focuses on making mytutor the best it can be, whether that's pairing up students with the best tutors or making sure people can find us as soon as they need some extra support.
