Have you always wanted to prepare for the baccalaureate without going to a physical lesson? Need to keep your wards and kids studying without having to carry physical books? The A1 Tutor app may be available to resolve these issues.
Tutor A1 is a learning platform for secondary and A-level students – a platform that aims to make learning fun, interactive and easier for students.

About Tutor A1
The app was launched in January 2022 by Olanipekun Paul Kayode, who said in an interview:
“From my experience of working at different levels of teaching and learning in Nigeria, I have observed a shift in the way we learn over the past decade. Previous generations prided themselves on their ability to read large texts while Gen Z are digital learners who tend to stick to their gadgets. My main goal is to bring learning to a medium where learners can be engaged to learn with enthusiasm.”

What users say
Wow! what an exciting app. It taught me a lot and improved my college life by making me more interested in my studies, and I couldn’t see any errors while using the app, but the only problem I have is Watching the videos while the tutor is tutoring if by any chance you pause the video for just a few seconds, you will find out that the video will no longer be able to play except you will start from scratch, so do something about it.
Guy, this app is just a great job! Little by little the difficult things become simple! (especially only if there is data 😞) . But unfortunately, I didn’t see “calculation”, in math. I would like to deepen the calculation.
I have no problem with the app only that most of the things I have trouble with especially chemistry are not in the app every time I try to play the video it just says coming soon and it’s pissing me off because I’m getting ready for jamb so please let it come sooner please I beg you.
So far I haven’t had any issues with the app and it’s the first education app that to my surprise works as it should, and the video lessons are very explanatory. I really enjoy using the app and I promise to recommend the app. to my younger friends and siblings🥰😊
The app is nice, I love it, I would have given it five stars, but the problem is that most of the video lessons are not played😥 Please try to fix this problem.
Does the app keep its promises?
The first impression one gets from the app is that the user interface is impressive.
An impressive feature observed is that the lessons on the app once downloaded can be viewed offline.
But, the lessons on the app are not all free, but are affordable with a 3-tier subscription plan.
Anyone with a good phone and data subscription can have access to a number of lesson videos that can be downloaded to listen to as much as the student needs.
The app offers two categories which are High School (SS1-SS3) and A levels (Cambridge, IJMB, JUPEB).
In the high school category, seven subjects are currently available on the app, including English language, general math, English literature, government, physics, chemistry, and biology.
Another feature is the forum where users can ask questions or even discuss any part of their lessons.
what we think
The A1 Tutor app may be over-promising.
It does not offer any subjects for lower secondary students. Courses for senior students only include seven subjects with no business subjects such as economics, business or accounting available on the app.
The A’ levels segment has even fewer subjects available, including general mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology which are purely science subjects.
Another observation is that while the subject tutors speak clearly enough, there is still room for improvement in the pronunciation of some of the instructors.
The A1 Tutor app has great potential as an online learning platform, but there is room for improvement.
- an increase in the subjects offered;
- Include lessons for junior high
