GuruQ: A unique digital platform helping India find the right tutors

MINAL ANAND (CEO), GuruQ

If you ask a student what she wants to be – the answer could be an engineer, an entrepreneur, a financial analyst, or even a digital marketer. While the dream can vary, the fulfillment starts with education for all. Academic learning is of prime importance in India where the career of a student depends on the marks secured by him or her.

Although schools in India are making considerable efforts in providing quality education, the teacher-to-student ratio in schools today does not allow teachers to devote quality time to every student. This demand for the personalized attention that today’s curriculums require is met by home tuitions. Today, almost every child has some form of tuition. Hence, it becomes even more important to equip tutors with the latest teaching methodologies and keep them updated with international approaches in contributing to better learning.

GuruQ is a one-of-a-kind digital platform where tutors can connect with and teach students, gain recognition, manage time efficiently and increase earnings. Students and parents can choose tutors on the basis of past reviews and ratings, manage timetables, and assess progress and more. A child’s education is the biggest concern for parents, and are forever anxious if they are doing enough. With the constant worry and no control over what their child learns at school, this worry is best addressed by extra-schooling (tuitions) that they after school, which is the flagship offering of GuruQ.

On the GuruQ platform, students are given different ways to find tutors as per their exact requirements. Since students today are pressed for time, the platform helps them save it by providing tuition completely at their convenience. Students can personalize their tuition classes with respect to the mode of class (offline or online), type of class (individual or group), and budget. They can select a tutor and book classes at short notice and/or even book them with selected tutors by the hour for special needs such as revision and exam preparation. Even parents can keep track of their child’s progress online and seek feedback when they want to.  GuruQ app provides hassle-free online classes for students. The curriculum of GuruQ includes live classes, one on one personal attention, doubt clearing sessions, and budget-friendly tutor for all subjects.

GuruQ is unique and different from any other apps owing to the following reasons:

  • Learner Centric: The GuruQ platform is centered around how students can make the most of their limited time and resources. Students can use various search parameters to quickly and easily find tutors to match their exact requirements. Students can get on-demand tutoring anywhere, anytime.
  • Tech Powered: The founder Minal Anand understands the significance of technology, and had created an elaborate and extremely user-friendly dashboard that provides easy and effective usage of the platform. Diverse functionalities have been integrated to provide an end-to-end one-stop learning solution.
  • Quality Driven: In order to deliver true quality, GuruQ helps students make informed decisions based on unbiased reviews & ratings of tutors by others tudents and parents. Moreover, the GuruQ team continually monitors and ensures that all tutors are meeting the Quality Standards that we demand from our tutors.

GuruQ does not offer video tutorials. It is the ‘Skype’ of teaching, learning of subjects and educational content, where tutors and students interact and get every concept explained and every doubt cleared. The platform also connects students to certified tutors for offline individual or group classes and vice-versa at pocket-friendly prices and customized packages. The stringent 5-step vetting process of tutors provides a safe and quality learning environment for students. This out-of-the-box business model of GuruQ is certainly its USP. The additional feature of an in-built video conference with a whiteboard and screen-sharing option available in the app for all students would be an added advantage. GuruQ thrives on the mantra “One phone, one app”.
