The innovative learning tool is loaded with both West African and British Curricula and has been endorsed by the relevant educational bodies such as the Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB), the National Educational Research Development Council (NERDC) and Federal Ministry of Communication Technology.
The Glo Mobile Tutor is one of the many innovations that Globcom has introduced as part of its commitment to better the lives of Nigerians. The plan is open to both new and existing subscribers. To enjoy the service, subscribers are to text EDUW to 4244 at N75 weekly, or EDUM to 4244 at N150 monthly.

According to him, Glo Mobile Tutor is an application that provides a more convenient and easier way for students at both Junior and Secondary schools to learn and successfully prepare for examinations.
