Vivendi’s Wengo announced it acquired at-home tutoring site Bordas.com

Paris, France, 20-1-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — Wengo, the leader in specialist counseling over the telephone, has rounded out its offering with the acquisition of Bordas.com, the site for at-home tutoring given exclusively by French National Education teachers. Nearly 10,000 parents have opted to entrust the tutoring of their children to one of the 5,000 teachers working with Bordas.com.

Academic success is now more than ever a key concern for parents, but tutoring their children themselves can be difficult when they have growing professional responsibilities to manage. In this context, the dedicated site provides them with innovative tools to help them adapt to these constraints. The website allows parents to search for National Education instructors available near them. Moreover, the professors’ online resumes, which include reports from previous lessons and reviews from other parents, help users choose the teacher that best suits their child. The purchase and planning of lessons takes place directly on the site. A report is sent after each lesson. Finally, Bordas.com handles all of the administrative procedures allowing parents to receive a 50% tax deduction for services provided in the home.

“With the acquisition of Bordas.com, Wengo is clearly demonstrating its commitment to becoming one of the key players in home tutoring,” explained David Britton, Managing Director of Wengo. “It is the only site where clients benefit from all the advantages offered by electronic purchasing. It lets them buy the services of professionals easily and … wisely!”
