Tutor.ng, an online tutoring platform providing tools for engaging and teaching learners and students has been launched. The founders said the mission of the platform is to connect tutors and students all over the world.
“We want to give our users a place to learn anything, teach anything, and collaborate and anytime, anywhere,” they said.
The site provides exclusive features that save time and enhance collaboration between students and teachers. Tutor.ng allows anyone – a school teacher or a person willing to share creative works; a private tutor, a test preparation company, a university – to start teaching online.
“As a Tutor, Tutor.NG platform includes everything you need to take your teaching online, from a virtual classroom, to functionality to create and deliver courses with assessment tools, content sharing features and live interactive sessions,” founders said.
For students, founders said Tutor.NG enables them to learn things – “anything; which you cannot or could not learn in school, helps you prepare for tests and exams, expand your horizons and broaden your perspective beyond what you do in everyday life. It effectively promotes student learning and can increase student knowledge in specific areas, subjects and topics through targeted components detailed in each lesson module.”
It aids increase in basic academic skills such as reading, spelling, history, science, creative arts and more and non-academic skills such as cooking, make up and makeovers and all general interests. Included in the modules are study guides, notes, resources and self-correcting quizzes and exams.
They said the platform is highly adaptable and easy to use.
“You only sign up once and then decide if you want to create your tutor profile or start learning. If you want to be both a tutor and a student it is possible; the platform will give you the full flexibility,” founders said.
