Upswing is a multi-faceted, online career and academic coaching marketplace targeted toward high schools and colleges. Everything from coach selection to interaction and feedback occurs directly on our site. Upswing provides students with the ability to select coaches based upon various criteria; and allows coaches the ability to set their own rates, schedules, and mode of teaching. This allows complete flexibility between both users.
This type of service has been very popular among colleges and high schools, who struggle with finding adequate tutoring options for their students. In NC alone, there are 58 community colleges, and only 4 are within urban areas.
The key to Upswing is our data collection. From the moment a user enters Upswing, we collect up to 50 data points on that user or group of users on everything from specific learning styles to macro-based trends. This data becomes extremely valuable to the institutions we interact with.
