Below is our recent interview with Nicolas Levandowsky, the Founder & CEO at Studeo:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Studeo is an all-inclusive video learning app that has two goals: improve students’ grades and pave their way to top universities. The mobile app provides affordable, high-quality tuition, simplified learning techniques inside a friendly and engaging video learning platform.
Studeo tutors have graduated from Oxford or Cambridge and propelled many of their previous students into top universities. Elite tutoring is expensive (£150+ per hour), a barrier for many families seeking help with their child’s education. Tutors can offer their app-based content at a fraction of the cost of a private lesson, essentially digitalising the private tutoring experience.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Studeo app is launching its app for the new school year to help students improve their grades. After a solid beta testing phase with feedback from over 150 users, Studeo now aims to grow its user base. Studeo targets students that don’t necessarily have the means to afford a private tutor on a weekly basis, while emulating a similar experience with high quality tuition available at any time.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Students can access bite-sized videos, MCQs, flashcards, live forums for Q&A, through their smartphones. They can refer to lessons anytime and anywhere. No need to spend countless hours searching for a private tutor, Studeo has selected them thoroughly and made them accessible to everyone. Students have unlimited access to content and can ask questions in a live forum section. The app provides students with practical revision tools to optimise learning, including correction videos and flashcards accessible on the bus to school or during breaks.
Studeo ambitions to develop content to cover A-levels and GCSE science topics: Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, while starting with Maths 2nd year A-level.
In total, Studeo has created 500 videos, 500 MCQs, 200 flashcards and a live forum across two countries and is ready to scale its offering.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Studeo plans to develop 4 years of content from A-levels down to GCSE in Maths and Physics in the UK and France. The team plans to achieve this with a new fundraising round in preparation and by hiring additional tutors.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: We have drastically selected our tutors to ensure they have the best academic record and are absolutely passionate about education and teaching. Our tutors have graduated from the top universities in the world and have a track record of propelling their students into the best institutions.
Additionally, we are creating an interactive and adaptive app that will in the future personalise the learning journey to tailor the experience to each student and their respective level.
Studeo’s vision is to break the existing physical and financial barriers in the education system to help reduce inequalities across the country.
