Pivot is a next generation online tuition platform. Singstat reports approximately 600 thousand children within primary school to junior college ages and according to the Straits Times, 7 out of 10 parents send their children for tuition. This is a huge market, that is worth almost SGD$1billion. Yet, only 3 out of 10 students actually feel that their grades improved. The issue here is that good tutors are rare, and are always fully booked. Our app tackles that problem, by moving these good tutors online, saving them the trouble of traveling and looking for a location. In essence, we create time. Our platform provides a online classroom environment for the tutors to conduct their classes. It comes complete with video chat, pdf sharing, whiteboard, as well as screen sharing to give tutors all the necessary tools they need to replicate the teaching experience. On top of this tool we also build an management system, where one can match students to teachers. The end result is that students and teachers can attend classes with a single click.
