Malaysia-based GuruLab, a platform that provides tutors with learning analytics tools, has raised US$1 million in a seed round joined by Wright Partners.

On top of its learning tools, GuruLab also provides students with personalized lessons, starting with livestreamed English classes. The company was founded in 2021 by former McKinsey & Company consultant Eer Kai Song and Vicky Tan, who previously co-founded learning firms Veritas Academy and Co:Ed Learning.

Currently, the company has already onboarded a team of over 10 masters and doctorate degree holders in education, as well as teachers with decades of experience, Eer said.
