MyTutor news 📣 We’ve bought tech skills company Fire Tech

·// December 10, 2021

We’ve got some exciting news here at MyTutor. Over the last couple of years we’ve grown faster than ever, bringing life-changing learning to more kids than ever before. And we’ve only just got started. Today we’re delighted to announce that we’ve acquired Fire Tech, an online coding and tech training platform for kids, so we can offer a much wider range of brilliant learning opportunities for your child.

Keep reading to find out more about Fire Tech, and how you can try out some of their coding and tech courses – with a special discount for MyTutor parents. 

What is Fire Tech?

First, let us introduce you to our new friends! Founded in 2012, Fire Tech is the UK’s leading platform for kids’ coding courses and tech education. Some of their most popular courses include Python (a popular coding language), Minecraft Maker (where kids can build their own online worlds) and Game Design using Roblox (leading games-building software). Kids learn in small groups with expert tutors, mostly after school, on weekends and during school holidays. 

Why has MyTutor acquired them? 

We’re already the UK’s most trusted online tuition platform, helping teens fill in learning gaps, boost their confidence and get their best grades. By joining forces with Fire Tech, we’ll be able to offer learning beyond the curriculum, giving kids valuable tech skills that will spark passion for learning – and set them up for life. 

In a society where the need for people with coding skills is ever-growing, and in light of a national skills shortage, we’re super excited to be adding this co-curricular learning to the MyTutor family. If your child is already fluent in Python, they could boost their skills with an AI course. Or if they’ve got a creative side, they could try upping their technical skills with one of many design courses. Our mission is to bring life-changing tuition to all, and Fire Tech’s courses will supercharge our journey to making that dream a reality.

Can my child get involved? 

Short answer: yes absolutely! Here are a few of Fire Tech’s courses you can find out more about…

Teen Coding With Python (ages 13-17)
