Our Story

Holly has always been passionate about teaching and education. With a successful career as a professional private tutor behind her, Holly had developed strong and enduring connections with her pupils and found that her success, driven by word of mouth, was resulting in more enquiries than she could handle.

Not wishing to turn students in need of tutoring away, Holly tried to source other tutors to support her students. Yet, Holly wasn’t prepared to settle for any tutor. She wanted to call upon exceptional tutors who cared as much as she did. Skilled in the educational side of a tutoring business, Holly turned to her online specialist husband, Ash, for support.

Ash tried to search online but was found it a struggle to quickly find trusted tutors with verified experience – he found existing tutor sites either overly expensive or unreliable.

That’s when the idea of Impact Tutors was born. Fuelled by Holly’s teaching experience and Ash’s technology know-how, Impact Tutors set out to create a community of highly qualified, personable tutors who really care about making a difference, with a technology-driven approach to making the search and booking process effortless and flexible.

Ash left his high profile technology role in October 2016 to focus on the business and Holly left her teaching role at Mill Hill County High School in July 2017 to support the growing company and their vision of a modern tutoring website that works for everyone, from the tutors to the pupils and their parents.
