Edge Tutor International, Inc. announces its spin-off from Edukasyon, with Henry Motte-Muñoz serving as its CEO. Edge Tutor International — or simply Edge Tutor — started in early 2022 as one of the product offerings of Edukasyon with the goal of addressing the learning gap experienced by students in the Philippines.

Edge Tutor was originally built as a tutorial service that offered high-dosage online tutoring in English and Maths for K-12 learners, with its own roster of highly skilled educators based throughout the Philippines. Later in 2022, faced with growing international demand for its services, Edge Tutor answered the call for equitable access to passionate, professional teachers by training professional educators to provide additional teacher support to different tutoring businesses in different parts of the globe 24/7. Since then, Edge Tutor has expanded to 20 countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific, and has been growing at 50% quarter on quarter, thanks to its commitment to providing high-quality education services.

New team, same excellence

Edukasyon founder Henry Motte-Muñoz will serve as the CEO of Edge Tutor, bringing his solid track record in the Edtech industry, with the full support of Edukasyon’s backers, including but not limited to Gobi Core, Foxmont Capital Partners, First Asia Venture Capital, KSR Ventures, Lorinet Foundation, Edulab Capital Partners, Obunsha Ventures, Bisk Ventures, Taylor’s Education, French Partners and Mustard Seed.

Motte-Muñoz, a Harvard graduate formerly with Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital, served as the CEO of Edukasyon from 2015 to 2020. Under his leadership, Edukasyon has become one of the leading online education platforms in the Philippines, connecting millions of students every year to education opportunities.

“We are excited to announce the spin-off of Edge Tutor International and appoint Henry Motte-Muñoz as its new CEO,” said Grace David, CEO of Edukasyon. “We are confident that, under his leadership, Edge Tutor International will continue to grow and provide high-quality tutoring services to learners worldwide.”

As the CEO of Edge Tutor, Motte-Muñoz sets his eyes on forming an entire roster of Filipino teachers who will provide world-class education to Filipino and international learners and clients. “Helping learners achieve their full potential through education has always been our vision,” Motte-Muñoz said. “Edge Tutor supplements the learning that Edukasyon has provided for almost a decade now, and we are excited to build this community of educators together.”

Joining Motte-Muñoz in the leadership of Edge Tutor International are seasoned professionals with a collective experience of four decades in recruiting, training, managing, and developing online teachers from the Philippines into world-class teachers.

According to Edge Tutor Vice President of Operations Cecilia Calvo-Lewis, the success of Edge Tutor lies in the community of highly skilled teachers that’s spread throughout the country.

“Despite working remotely, our seasoned team has fostered a sense of belonging and support,” Calvo-Lewis said. “In partnership with the world’s most trusted names in online learning, Edge Tutor can provide career opportunities for teachers to connect with one another, share teaching tips, and receive feedback. This community drives our sense of purpose to be relentless in our pursuit of the most effective way to learn.”

Edge Tutor has currently trained over 1,000 licensed teachers on evidence-based methodology and strategies for online teaching. These teachers are handpicked and undergo rigorous screening where only 3% of applicants are accepted. All teachers are licensed and attend regular training to ensure they are constantly upskilling. Edge Tutor offers services in 20+ countries across the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific, with more to be announced in the coming months.
