Making Tutoring Social: How Facebook and Tablets are Changing the Global Landscape for 1:1 Private Tutoring


Your Name and Title: Ethan Fieldman, Founder & CEO


Organization Name: Tutor Matching Service


Co-Presenter Name: N/A


Country from Which You Will Present: United States


Language in Which You Will Present: English


Target Audience: Administrators, parents, and students across higher education and K-12.


Short Session Description: This session will discuss how emerging technologies in social and mobile are fundamentally transforming private 1:1 tutoring on a global scale.


Full Session Description: Tutor Matching Service has developed an innovative online marketplace built directly within Facebook that enables students to connect with qualified private tutors. Tutors sign up for free within our community, and students can easily find, schedule, and pay for tutoring using our online tools.   

Additionally, our company has just released a first-of-its-kind free app for online tutoring that combines tutoring-specific whiteboard tools with face-to-face video chat.  This is the first cross-platform app to work across iPad, Android as well as the web to enable students and tutors to conduct synchronous tutoring sessions remotely.

We believe that the combination of a Facebook-based community/marketplace and tablet technology will provide a platform to harness and unlock the brainpower across the globe, allowing individuals to easily connect with and teach one another in new ways - soon, finding and connecting with a Spanish tutor in Madrid or a physics tutor from Caltech will be possible for and available to students from any location.
