We will be launching SkillsMarket beta in January 2014 with the aim of disrupting the unregulated, highly liquid private tutoring industry, currently valued at $92 billion globally. SkillsMarket uses advanced technology + human intellect to match students with their perfect private tutor, in minutes.
We connect students still in compulsory education with the top tutoring talent nearby. In the UK, 24% of parents paid for the services of tutors outside classroom hours, with the percentage as high as 40% in London. The market is valued at £6 billion in the UK with continued growth forecasted in the future.
SkillsMarket emphasises personalised tuition and we enable this with our advanced search filters including personality and learning styles to ensure we match students with their perfect tutor.
