Murray founded EdTech company Tassomai after years working as a science tutor. What had begun initially as a way of funding his early career as a professional musician and keen athlete evolved into a passion for helping students to achieve great results and exceed expectations. Many of his students were unable to attend school for health and behavioral reasons, nor were many able to afford much individual support, so much of the work was based on the idea of self-directed, sustainable practice between lessons and marginal gains – just as a musician or athlete would train.
It was out of frustration at the unfairness of tuition and its inherent inefficiency that Murray decided to formalise his methods of teaching and learning into a system that could support students to independent study. Tassomai is now used by some 100,000 students preparing for GCSE science in over 450 schools in the UK.
