Edukasyon.ph launches on-demand K-12 tutoring service in English, Math, and Filipino for students in Kindergarten to Grade 10
The largest EdTech startup in the Philippines, Edukasyon.ph, launched EDGE Tutor, an on-demand K-12 tutoring service in English, Math, and Filipino for students in Kindergarten to Grade 10. Accessible on the web, desktop, and mobile, EDGE Tutor combines great teachers, a world-class curriculum developed by experts, aligned with DepEd standards, and crafted to be globally competitive in one easy-to-use platform.
“Edukasyon’s vision is to help ensure that every Filipino learner is empowered through the experience of quality education to be successful in life, one Edtech product at a time. EDGE Tutor allows parents and students access and enjoy a personalized quality learning experience that can aid in their outcome improvement, unlike any offline experience,” says Cecilia Calvo, VP of tutorial operations.
“The last two years have made a huge impact on the next generation of Filipinos. Because of the pandemic, the majority of Filipino students, and particularly hit badly are students ages four to 12. Most out learners have developed learning gaps through no fault of their own,” explains Cecilia. “Most of them have missed mastering skills and knowledge they need to advance their Math and Literacy skills. If you can’t understand something, you will lose motivation to continue learning it and EDGE intends to prevent that. We are here to bring joy back to learning Math and English and bring the happiness that comes with confidence, success, and good grades.”
EDGE Tutor has taught thousands of fun and effective lessons since its pilot run in May.
EDGE Tutor makes it simple to get started on almost any device. By visiting its website, you can book a free 25-minute tutoring session on the subject of your choice. After the free trial session, parents can choose between four and 10 sessions for ₱999 and ₱4,199 a month, respectively. The student will get a free grade-level assessment and a personalized learning plan to achieve the parents’ goals.
Led by expertly trained tutors, the program begins with an academic diagnostic assessment to pinpoint areas in which support is needed. From there, an individualized plan is created to set learning goals, followed by flexible instruction up to five times a week, with 25 to 50 or more minute sessions in one-to-one or small group settings. Students are re-assessed throughout the program to monitor progress and growth, allowing for ongoing plan recalibration and goal resetting.
During each lesson, students and tutors interact live in a virtual classroom, which features integrated functions such as a whiteboard, stopwatch, H5 animation, and the option to share a screen and answer tasks.
EDGE and their fully accredited tutors go through a rigorous selection process, with less than a three percent acceptance rate into Edukasyon. Beyond their credentials, tutors are selected precisely for their personality, patience, and subject matter expertise. EDGE Tutors undergo 20 hours of mandatory training monthly and lessons are regularly observed for feedback.
The learning platform continues to empower eight million Filipino students with edtech products, Explore, Experience, and now EDGE Tutor.
‘If you can’t understand something, you will lose motivation to continue learning it and EDGE intends to prevent that. We are here to bring joy back in learning Math and English and bring the happiness that comes with confidence, success, and good grades.’
“EDGE Tutor completes our product offerings at Edukasyon,” said Grace David, CEO. “We started with developing products and creating learning programs for our Gen Z learners. Now, through EDGE, we can make an impact on every generation of Filipino learners, from Gen Z to our new generation of young learners.”
“The pilot launch in May showed us that 99 percent of our parents are most interested in tutoring to supplement their child’s learning. Since then, we have held thousands of classes to constantly improve the quality of our teaching and make sure to deliver a learning experience like no other,” says Hendry Motte-Munoz, founder and chief strategy officer.
