Neartutors is an Ibadan-based, online platform connecting people who want to learn any subject of their choice, with those who want to teach and earn money for doing so.

Neartutors’ value proposition is simple.

“We’ve built a platform where people can find the best tutors to help them learn whatever it is they care about with ease and help new and experienced, full-time and part-time tutors make money while enjoying the satisfaction that comes from transferring knowledge” says the Neartutors website.

Okay, maybe not one-short-sentence simple but you get the point.

The website offers tutorials in academia e.g mathematics, physics, geography etc; aptitude tests; local and foreign languages; and special skills such as project management, programming, web design, music, swimming and even dancing.

A user looking for a tutor simply needs to enter a subject or topic of choice and a location and a list of tutors in the area will be drawn up. Tutors, on the other hand, are required to undergo a subject proficiency test as well as confirmation process before they are allowed to teach a subject to ensure student safety and guarantee great results.

After confirmation, tutors are allowed to post rates for their services. Prices range from free one hour sessions to NGN1,400 per hour. Students can review their tutors, rating them based on performance and personal overall learning experience.

The service’s beta launch targeted only the Ibadan area but will open up tomorrow August 1 probably expanding to other cities.

Inside STEMCafe—the brainchild of Bosun Tijani, CEO, CcHUB—on the first floor of Enyo Service Station along the Lekki-Epe expressway, I leave the […]
