Anita MacDonald

Founding CEO at Meteor Tutors
On the record

Anita MacDonald, a former opera singer and pianist, aimed to provide a safe and state-of-the-art solution for sophisticated online music lessons. She spearheaded the development of Meteor Tutors, an EdTech solution that provides a secure online space for students and tutors to meet online across countries via the web or mobile app.

MacDonald, a multiple prizewinning pianist at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and qualified Secondary Headteacher, scaled global online tuition by matching qualified and vetted tutors with clients on the secure 2 factor ID site, with facial and fingerprint technology lessons. Students and tutors benefit from automated engagement and payment services for ease of use.

Now she provides the solution for employee training and seminars with Meteor Fireball.
