Story

Students are constantly trying to balance strong academic performance while maintaining a fun and active social life. Poor academic performance in school can be attributed to many different reasons but all lead to the same consequences: failing courses, lost scholarships, and weak career prospects. At TutorU, we believe students shouldn't have to struggle to get the marks they want and miss out on new opportunities due to poor grades. TutorU was created with the sole purpose of helping students improve their overall university experience by starting with supporting their academic studies.

 

What is TutorU?

TutorU is a mobile application that connects university students seeking help with their courses to students that have previously excelled in those courses. For students that want to tutor, TutorU provides an easy way of earning money and it can even help them get job interviews. After every tutoring session the tutored students can rate the tutors and provide testimonials about their experiences. This will allow tutors to build their own profile and personal brand on the application.

By building a community of students who are willing to help each other succeed, we believe we can improve the university experience for students looking for a push in the right direction.

 

How does it work?

 

In the app tutors sign themselves up for courses they would like to teach. Students seeking tutors search for the courses they need help with. The app will show them the available tutors, the price they ask and the reviews other students wrote about them. Once the student has found a tutor he can connect with him/her.

Before they make an appointment for the session, the tutor and student agree upon a price. TutorU will receive a commission of 10% for every session.  

After the session the students will have the opportunity to rate the tutor and write a review about the session. Tutors with the best ratings and reviews will appear on top of the page. Furthermore they will get the opportunity to get in touch with companies, in order to get job interviews.

Another aspect of our app that may interest firms hiring fresh graduates is our section for advertisements.  Having access to the hardest working segment of universities is ideal for firms finding good candidates.  We hope that while helping students find the best jobs and firms their best employees, we can have this as a separate revenue stream from ad revenue.

 

What is our timeline?

Our crowdfunding campaign will last for one month. During this month we will keep spreading word about our idea, to reach as much people (and companies) as possible. At the end of the month we will use the funds to develop an application and a website. A beta version of the app will become available after the summer.

 

Where will your money go?

The money raised by this crowdfunding campaign will be used to create a minimum viable product version of the application and the website. We believe that … hkd is needed to implement our idea.

At TutorU, our goal is to help students reach their unlimited potential by ensuring students have the necessary resources to live the university experience they dream of. We hope you will support our cause and help empower students to reach their goals today.
