Tutoring app is having an impressive year
- Wits University
Thanks to the #Hack.Jozi Challenge, Tuta-Me, an on-demand tutoring service, has seen great growth in user numbers.
South African startup Tuta-Me has been building on its success after it was named runner-up in the 2016 #Hack.Jozi Challenge that has now became an annual bootcamp for startups run by the Joburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE) at Wits University.
The #Hack.Jozi Challenge is a competition for entrepreneurs with innovative ideas to solve a challenge that the citizens of Joburg face, by developing the best digital solutions to everyday problems.
In an article published this week by Disrupt Africa, Tuta Me, co-founded by Abed Tau and Dylan Hyslop in April 2015 and launched in March of this year, is called an “Uber for tutoring - a mobile app that allows students to identify, book and pay for vetted and qualified tutors”.
Since its achievement at #Hack.Jozi in May, Tuta-Me has now signed up more than 2 000 users, of which 700 are tutors.
A good start for preparing for those exams!
