The website allows users to connect with the very best teachers in the country no matter where they live or what school they go to.
Students who enrol at will receive a weekly video lesson delivered on screen by the subject teacher over twenty-four weeks throughout the 2015/16 academic year.

Paul will appear on Episode Six of Dragons’ Den on RTÉ One this Sunday, 22nd May at 9.30pm
