Whizz Education

Whizz Education is a pioneer in the EdTech industry, providing online tutoring services that are designed to enhance the learning experience of students around the world. The company has a simple but powerful mission: to make education accessible to every child, regardless of their location or socio-economic status.

At the heart of Whizz Education’s philosophy is the belief that every child has the right to a high-quality education. However, this is not always possible for many children, especially those living in underprivileged communities or in areas where access to education is limited. 
Whizz Education’s approach is built on the latest research in neuroscience, which suggests that students learn best when they are engaged in a personalized learning experience. Their online platform, Maths-Whizz, is designed to provide just that, with interactive lessons that are tailored to the individual needs of each student. This approach ensures that students are fully engaged in the learning process and are able to achieve their full potential.
