Whizz Education (Whizz)
Whizz Education Limited (Whizz) is a privately funded company with offices in the UK, US and UAE. It works with parents, schools and ministries of education to raise standards in maths (currently for 5 to 13 year olds) through the provision of online adaptive tutoring, whole class digital resources and application of best practices.
The company began its research and development on adaptive tutoring since its foundation over 10 years ago. Over the years it has combined innovations in a) automated adaptive lesson delivery tailored to each individual child’s needs and pace of learning, b) interactive animations and tests that are engaging, easy to use and educationally powerful, c) user experience designed to promote sustainable usage by students, reporting capabilities to support stakeholder monitoring and intervention at class, school and ministry levels and e) understanding and implementation of best practices around integrating virtual tutoring capabilities into the learning environment to achieve raised achievement levels and standards in maths.
The Maths-Whizz tutoring service has revealed compelling data and results. Children who use the Maths-Whizz tutor for 60 minutes a week improve their maths age, on average, by over a year and a half in their first year of usage. These results have been achieved in multiple markets and languages indicating the current and future potential for innovation and roll out of individual virtual tuition within education systems.
