What is the best blogging platform to use for a ‘tutoring’ site?

Question by blkobswg: What is the best blogging platform to use for a ‘tutoring’ site?
I’m working on starting a tutor series for Math. I’ll be using YouTube to upload videos, but I’d like a blogging platform or CMS to upload written explanations, include youtube videos along with written articles, and be able to customize the theme.

I’m curious as to what you recommend I look into using.

I’m a php developer so I can work most out to do what I want, but I’d rather not have to do this from scratch.

Services such as WordPress and Blogger are a no go for me. WordPress is a Pain to use and Blogger categorises by date not by information. Maybe a platform similar to entrepreneur.com???

Any input is appreciated!
I like the idea behind moodle. But I’m not feeling the coursework associated with it.

Well tumblr.com or wordpress.com are really good for blogging but for tutoring you might want to use wordpress.com
