Robert Grabiner

Co-founder

Robert Grabiner

Co-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 Hubbard

Co-founder

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.

After travelling North America, India and Europe, Will knew he wanted to work for a company that will have a big impact on the education sector. Will comes from a family who are passionate about education and he currently works alongside our partner schools to make the one-to-one tuition programmes as impactful as possible. Will studied Maths and Economics at York University, a course he took alongside working as a tennis coach and being a member of the university boxing team. Will tries to shake the maths-geek image by working through his book collection, he loves reading everything from Balzac to Kerouac.

Jen read English Literature at Durham University and, since then, has created marketing strategy and material for a number of organisations, both abroad and in the UK.

James Burton

Analytics

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

After working in front-office technology teams in the City, Sonal decided to pursue something she was really passionate about. She had experienced UX in her last role in the City and decided that this was the way forward. Following an immersive UX Design course at GA she did her final project for MyTutor and was subsequently recruited to work in the Product team. The rest as they say is history. Outside of work Sonal can be found getting creative in the kitchen.
