The story of how one educator and founder developed and built a tutoring platform that has the tutor-student relationship right at its core. This is The Tutor Index and Jason Preece.
With over 12 years in tutoring and as a music teacher, with a DPhil in Music Composition from the University of Oxford (alongside his role as Teaching Assistant there), Jason is currently Assistant Director of Music at a school in Oxford.

Alongside his business partner, Chris Nicholson, Jason founded The Tutor Index last spring, focusing on creating a perfect match between tutors and student.
For some (many, even) of you looking to set up your own tutoring business or platform, this is a wonderful conversation of how to go from one-(wo)man band to small tutoring business.
