NEW YORK, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TutaPoint.com, a leading, US-based online tutoring firm, has been acquired by newly formed TutaPoint Inc. of Houston, Texas.
Ryan Duques and Michael Callaghan founded TutaPoint in 2007, at a time when technology was just beginning to allow for dependable virtual education. TutaPoint's technology quickly evolved, enabling the company to offer expert, US-based tutoring services that utilize proprietary systems generating greater efficiency and efficacy.
TutaPoint's tutors work with thousands of K-12 students each year in academic subject areas and test preparation. Serving consumers and school districts, TutaPoint is deployed over an Internet connection; its platform allows for scheduling, messaging, concept reinforcement materials, online classroom tools, audio and video. Sessions are recorded, goals are established and assessments provided, which offer parents and schools granular tracking of progress.
Sara Downey, TutaPoint Inc's president, practiced law for several years and worked in sales and marketing before acquiring Houston-based At-Home Tutoring Services in 2012. Downey became passionate about tutoring and supplemental education services after witnessing the benefits of tutoring for her own two children.
At-Home Tutoring Services provides in-person tutoring to clients in the greater Houston and Boston areas. With the addition of TutaPoint, Downey expects to leverage resources, best-practices and instructors between the two teaching modes as she integrates the benefits that each has to offer.
Said Downey of her acquisition, "TutaPoint has a best-in-class platform for connecting students and tutors. I am thrilled to be part of TutaPoint's next chapter. At-Home Tutoring Services' clients will also benefit from the vast array of educational support materials offered by TutaPoint."
Terms of the sale were not disclosed.
"I cannot be more excited about the future of TutaPoint," said Ryan Duques, founder of TutaPoint.com. "Sara and her team of education professionals bring skill sets and fresh eyes that will further enhance TutaPoint's services."
