Inspiration

The Harvard College Undergraduate Council indicated that matching tutors to students was an important outstanding problem.

What it does

Our website allows both students and tutors to create accounts, as well as accounts with both functionalities. Students can express preferences for classes they would like a tutor for, and tutors can express preferences for classes they would like to tutor students in. Then the users can search for students and tutors in the classes they are interested in.

How we built it

The website is in PHP, with a MySQLi database.

Challenges we ran into

We had no prior experience with PHP or MySQLi, and we wrote the website from scratch.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The clean look.

What we learned

PHP and MySQLi.

What's next for Samaritan
