For international students who are planning to attend school in the US and are dissatisfied with low-quality language tutors in their home country, Merch is an online marketplace that provides them access to current students in the US. Unlike Talkways, VIPABC, or Google Helpouts, Merch is the only platform that aims to simultaneously solve language barrier and culture shock via peer-to-peer video interaction. International students want to practice their English and learn about the American culture. US students are willing to work for pay. Why not connect the two groups?
