How MyTutor’s Analytics Engineers saw a 50% jump in efficiency
I. Introduction: A company with a mission
MyTutor is the UK’s leading online platform for one-to-one learning, with the mission is to improve the educational outcomes of thousands of young people. They are building a future where access to high quality learning is stress-free for those who can afford it, and funded for those who can't.
One-to-one tuition is one of the most powerful ways to improve pupils’ grades, confidence and life chances. Yet it remains out of reach for many. MyTutor’s handpicked community of tutors work online with students from all walks of life, raising results on average by one whole grade. Since the recent disruptions to education, they have worked with the UK government to provide safe and reliable tuition to more students than ever. Some of their impressive numbers include partnerships with over 650 schools across the UK, and their tutors have given over a million lessons (!).
II. Challenge: Facilitating efficient decision-making at scale
At MyTutor, Jonathan Rankin, leads the Data Team, overseeing their efforts to translate data insights into actionable strategies. The team's responsibilities encompass diverse areas, such as reporting, predictive analytics, A/B testing, and ad hoc support. In the face of the challenges associated with optimizing efficiency and fostering smooth collaboration, the team turned to Paradime for assistance.

One of the features that stood out for Rankin was Paradime's integration with GitHub, providing the team with added confidence in error prevention and ensuring the smooth functioning of their models. The user-friendly IDE proved instrumental in expediting and deepening data analysis. Rankin also acknowledged the potential of Paradime's catalog feature for streamlined project management and documentation.

Rankin commended their responsiveness and commitment to promptly resolving any issues, reinforcing the idea that MyTutor is not just a client, but a valued partner. This support plays a vital role in making the data team feel prioritized, fostering a more efficient and effective collaboration between the two teams.
