HOW DOES IT WORK?

1

Tutors are given a room: bramble.io/TutorName1234. They send a link to their students.

2

Students follow the link using Chrome, iOS or Android. They join the tutor for their session.

3

After the session, a copy of the notebook is exported and a record of the session saved.

ALL YOU NEED TO TEACH ONLINE


LIVE VOICE
We use webRTC for voice on Chrome or Android devices. Discuss problems, debate issues and practice pronounciation.

WEBCAM
We think the session should be focussed on the notebook. But webcam mode can come in handy occasionally.

REAL-TIME SKETCHING
Unlike other online whiteboards, everything you draw appears on the other users screen in real-time.

TEXT ANNOTATE
Sometimes its better to type than to draw. That happens in real-time too. It's like being in the same room.

RAPID RESOURCE SHARING
Share resources in seconds. Combine with thepower of screenshotsand you can share anything almost immediately.

SNAPSHOT
Share resources using your webcam. Take a snapshot of past paper questions or written workings.

NOTEBOOK EXPORT
Everyone gets emailed a copy of the notebook on reset. An invaluable resource for recap and revision.

We are members of the Tutor's Association, the 'go to' resource for tutors and the public on all things tuition-related in the UK. We are pleased to be part of their mission to provide tutors with the best tools and services available to help them teach.

PERFECT FOR YOUR AGENCY


EMILY JACK - FOUNDER @ KINGS TUTORS
"Bramble is an excellent platform for online tutoring. It makes online tuition a lot easier, not to mention more effective, for both the tutee and tutor. It is also very easy to use!"

CUSTOM BRANDING
Host your rooms at a custom subdomain: youragency.bramble.io and add your own branding to the app.

REPORTING
We capture when sessions take place, who's involved and how long it lasts, making timesheets a thing of the past.

SECURITY
We use banking-level encryption via HTTPS to keep your data secure as it travels between devices.

CROSS-DEVICE
Bramble works across devices: from laptops using Chrome to any iOS or Android device, which are great for sketching.

LESS TRAVEL
Tutors save time and money by not having to travel. They can continue to teach high quality sessions and do so more often.


WHO ARE WE?

Dan Houldsworth

Whilst most saw the first iPad as nothing more than an oversized iPhone, Dan saw an opportunity to connect students and tutors more effectively than ever before. So began the Bramble mission. That mission has morphed along the way but Dan's commitment to elegant, first-principle solutions has remained constant. After 16 years in blue-chip services following a Maths degree from Cambridge, Bramble lets Dan unleash his inner developer.

Will Chambers

Back in 2012, Will had finished his first year at Cambridge and was looking for something useful to do over the summer. A coffee with Dan, and a conversation which ranged from the theory of knowledge to digital currency, led to an offer to join Bramble. Design work was fitted in amongst the Neuroscience studies for the following years before Will turned down a fourth year at university to go and work in tech. He's not looked back since.
