That this young man won the 2016 Future Awards in Education may not be a big surprise.  With a first-class degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Lagos, he is sure not a stranger to laurels. It’s, however, instructive that he decided to channel his knowledge to education, therefore portraying a desire to secure a stable future for other young people in the country.

Today, an online platform, Tuteria, which he co-midwifed, has helped to connect people to qualified and professional tutors to teach them.

But how did it all began?  Benson said he learnt the importance of having a competent, personal teacher from how his grandmother's extramural lessons helped him to become one of the brightest in his class and eventually graduated with a first-class from the university.

As a result of his experience, his passion to teach, coach and help others improve in academic performance spurred him to co-found Tuteria Nigeria Ltd, the first Nigerian online platform that connects people with professional tutors who could teach and coach them to improve in their areas of difficulty.

Since Benson founded Tuteria in 2015, the platform has gained recognition and won both local and international awards. Tuteria won the Nigerian presidency's Aso Villa Demo Day Award, Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Awards, Microsoft Passion To Empire Campaign and Impact Award for Facebook and's Africa and the 2016 Future Awards Prize for Education.
