TutorTies recognizes the need for additional assistance outside the classroom is in high demand. Many times, group peer review sessions and office hours are insufficient and challenging. The offered office hours may conflict with a student’s work or class schedules. The questions asked by others are not necessarily what the student needed help with. The available hours end and the numerous questions could not all be answered. Students are intimidated to ask questions believing they may appear behind on the subject or unprepared for the test, especially before tests. The university itself has limited tutors in limited subjects. Additionally, traditional tutors from tutoring companies are not helpful as they were unfamiliar with the content of the particular class.
TutorTies has developed a swipe-to-match mobile application to match tutors and students with subject, class, and even teacher commonalities. Profiles are built with subject, class, and teacher specifications, and include tutor’s profile pictures, transcripts and resumes.. TutorTies' software and an algorithm match students and tutors based on their profile commonalities. Matches are made when both parties swipe on each other. Upon matching, a chat room is prompted, sessions are scheduled and confirmed and payment if initiated. TutorTies has created an innovative way to assist all students needing additional academic assistance.
