Students: Students often have irregular schedules and need tutoring "on the go". NerdHerd provides tutoring for students without any of the hassle of planning a meeting, and lets students find tutors in their area almost instantly.
We were inspired by this because we're students ourselves, and sometimes, when we get stuck on problems, you really need a disposable tutor to solve them.
