Event Name: Women Startup Challenge
Most college students find themselves in a situation where they have difficulty understanding some concepts, but are hesitant to approach the instructor or their schedules might not let them meet with the TAs regularly. These are the people Tuber tries to help out! Tuber is a service that helps match students with potential tutors based on their geographic location, quality of service provided by the tutor measured using the ratings given by tutees and recommendations by professors. Tuber also hopes to help set up study groups among students who are either preparing for an exam or are interested in a particular research area. The main idea is that, even if there is someone just a few miles from you who has the expertise and willingness to help you with your courses, you won't be able to connect with them in reality. Tuber leverages transfer of knowledge by matching up students who otherwise would never have met, all this at the click of a button! Tuber is aware of all the issues over data privacy when sensitive information like location is made public, that is why, we maintain the anonymity of both the tutor and the tutee untill they actually met in person.
