MathCrunch will help solve your problems with Mobile On-Demand Tutoring

MathCrunch will help solve your problems with Mobile On-Demand Tutoring

Finding a tutor is tough, a good one even tougher, and you might as well throw in the towel if it has to happen on short notice. MathCrunch is trying to change all that, they want to offer on-demand tutoring for students at a low price point. In trying to make this a reality the company has mustered up $3.5 million in seed funding so far in order to reach out and find new users.

MathCrunch is attempting to connect students in dire need of assistance with their math problems with the right tutor to teach users how to solve them. So the key strengths for this platform is mobile messaging and the ability to enable on-demand connections with tutors who have specialized knowledge and spare time on their hands.

So MathCrunch is looking to find university students and teachers with knowledge of various different math subjects — like algebra, calculus, geometry, and the like — and pairing them with people who need help with specific problem sets. The way it works is a student takes a photo of the math problem and then submit it up through the mobile app, when a tutor logs in and sees the problem, they then set up a chat session to help the student work through the problem and find a solution.

The student is charged by the minute, they can either purchase minutes or accumulate earned minutes by referring friends or sharing the app with their friends from their social media feeds.
By creating this type of system MathCrunch is creating its own viral media expansion that brings new users to the platform on top of the fact that students get free or cheap tutoring.

The cost to students start at $12 for 30 minutes of tutoring, $22 for 60 minutes, or $40 for 120 minutes of tutoring help. The tutors are paid by the minute for the help they provide and can make themselves available at any time. If you have aspirations of becoming a tutor you better be ready to take a math test and then having a 30-minute chat session with a senior tutor. If you do get in, you’ll also get ratings from those you helped so you better be polite I guess.

Although the company is pretty green, they’ve already managed to achieve over 100,000 successful tutoring sessions, their hopes are to add new services and potentially new pricing models, including a subscription service that would provide users with an unlimited number of chat sessions for a limited amount of time. If you are someone who is looking to use their media skills to change the world, definitely consider trying to work with MathCrunch (jobs at MathCrunch). I would but I’m terrible at Math.
