We were inspired by seeing the tutorial communication gaps going on in our own school and wanted to make a difference in our local school communities.
What it does
*Calendar System for people to sign up for classes and the teacher can invite them to come to a tutorial meeting *This will send an automatic email to the parents about their tutoring time *At the end of the tutorial, the teacher can award them points for showing up, their engagement, etc. *The teacher can set their own scale if they want, to convert the total points they have, to a certain amount of extra-credit points *EX: 10 tutorial points = 1 extra credit point *No rewards, only points. *Teacher can enter *Points can be translated to physical rewards
How we built it
We built this mobile application by using Android Studio.
Challenges we ran into
We had a super complicated project int he beginning, and it took us a while to tone it down to something accomplishable. However, none of us had ever used Android Studio and have coded in Java! Luckily, our great mentors helped us a lot, and we were able to get an MVP done.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
*Getting the MVP done on Android Studio
What we learned
*Java *Android Studio
What's next for TutorPal
*We would like to introduce this to our local schools and then to other schools and districts to benefit them all.
