The first tutoring marketplace to offer only high quality, professionally trained and experienced educators who know your neighborhood! Watch a video from the maker

The Experiment

Will a tutoring marketplace that's limited to professionally trained, experienced, and networked teachers outperform existing solutions?

Our local teachers work hard and devote their lives to be content specialists who earn the trust of their community and can often be the most crucial source of inspiration for a student’s future success.

I am interested in creating a platform which allows professionally trained and experienced educators to market their expertise in the after-school tutoring market, away from the clutter and noise of the current heterogeneous marketplaces.

Provider participation is strictly limited to experienced, trained and vetted teachers and their professional contacts. Students are assured that not only are providers experts in the subject area, but that they are, by trade, educators with well-developed pedagogical content knowledge with a long term investment in improving their craft.

To test this experiment, I need
- minimum of 25 vetted and connected teachers with tutoring experience
- a desktop and mobile landing page for teacher profile creation with a built-in feedback

Expected Duration: 23 Weeks
