Tutor-hunting made easy by start-up firm

IANS  |  Bengaluru 

Now parents won't have to rely solely on their limited local contacts to find the right tutor for their children, as a new web-service which facilitates a meeting between the two was launched on Thursday by Vidyanext.

Vidyanext, a start-up venture, has launched a recommendation service, operable through their website, which enables parents to find the most suitable and available tutor for their ward around the area after feeding in a few details on their website -- location, subject to be studied, education board.

The tutors are also allowed to enrol themselves on the website, adding to the database of prospective tutors. To avail the service they are supposed to pay a licensing fee for each student who chooses to study under them. At present, 1,100 tutors are live on Vidyanext Tutor directory in Bengaluru alone.

Apart from Bengaluru, the service is live in Gurgaon as of now.

"Today, with our student-tutor matching service, we are simplifying the process of tuition-searching," Pradeep Singh, CEO Vidyanext, said at the launch.

"We have also developed a process called Smart Revisions, which uses the data we have about them (students), like submission history, to curate the massive amount of content a student needs to learn and tell each student where to focus every day.

"Our efforts will continue to transform the conventional rote learning method in India to a process which nurtures inquisitiveness, and empowers parents, students and tuition teachers with digital tools to facilitate their role in the learning cycle," he added.

A statement issued by Vidyanext revealed that close to 90 per cent parents decide on a tutor after meeting just two of them, while 99 per cent of them select one after meeting only five tutors.
