We found a pressing need: struggling students in courses need an easy way to find tutors in the area. Our service seeks to solve that need: released first in a small setting such as a high school, students can search for subjects and find the contact information of tutors using a database algorithm to match the two. This is at the core of our service. Also, tutors may create accounts and offer to teach anyone based on their area of expertise. By giving out their email address, we facilitate interaction between the two and pave the way for tutoring sessions at an agreed price. To fully cope with possible high demand for a tutor, we have assembled a preliminary prototype of a bidding function to attract tutors for students. Finally, and possibly the most progressive, we plan to not only offer tutoring based on courses and subjects, but on training for desired careers for the student.
