Dive into a world where learning, cutting-edge tech, and making a difference come together, opening doors to education that everyone deserves.

Mark Maclaine knows firsthand how tough learning can be, having overcome his own hurdles with ADHD and dyslexia. At first, these challenges held him back; but in time they became the inspiration he needed to make a difference. He's spent years turning traditional teaching on its head, offering one-on-one support that's not just about grades, but about sparking curiosity. Mark has gone on to become one of the most successful tutors in the world, teaching the children of world leaders, royal families and movie stars.

His journey has touched not only his students but also thousands of educators he's trained, sharing his passion for using innovative technology and new ideas to make education better and society stronger, no matter who you are or where you're from.

Education for all

Growing up on a London council estate, Mark faced not just the internal hurdles of ADHD and dyslexia, but also the external challenges of limited resources and opportunities. His early education was tough, laden with obstacles that extended beyond the classroom and seeped into the confines of socioeconomic constraints.

However, these complexities only fuelled his resolve. Realising that conventional education methods were often out of sync with individuals' unique learning curves, especially for those from backgrounds like his own, Mark ventured beyond traditional academic boundaries. He dissected learning to its core, reshaping his own teaching into something accessible and effective regardless of one's origins or personal challenges.

This more 'holistic', self-driven understanding of education, inspired by his own challenges, laid the groundwork for his work in the field of personalised education. Harnessing his insights, he created tailored tutoring approaches, reaching students from all walks of life and proving that everyone has potential waiting to be unlocked.

Today, Mark Maclaine is not just an educator; he is a tech entrepreneur, writer, producer and STEM presenter. His journey to this from a council estate is a testament to his belief that every student deserves the keys to unlock their fullest potential, regardless of their starting point in life.
