What a strange name, TutStu?
Yeah, we know. Hey, but look, TutStu is memorable specially because it is “sing-song”-ish. Once I tell you the source of the name, you will never forget it, believe me! Well, TutStu is an integration of 2 very meaningful words, Tutor & Student. We just took the first three alphabet from Tutor & Student and punched that together. So, “Tut” and “Stu” becomes TutStu. That’s our way of saying, “We Care a Lot!” about just 2 people, Tutors and Students. Hope it will be easier to remember the name, now. If not, may I suggest, close your eyes and say aloud “TutStu”, “TutStu” and “TutStu”, it would be FUN.
So, what is TutStu?
Well, for definition lovers, here is how we define TutStu:- “TutStu is an open crowd-sourced online tutoring marketplace for teachers and students, worldwide. It’s a Learning Platform which aims to democratize learning and disrupt the current methods of education delivery.”
Enough of the technical jargons for now, let’s come down to a lay-man’s interpretation.
The 41% people aged between 26-55yrs, might be great Engineers, Doctors, Academics, Bankers, Scientists, Astronauts, Economists, Mathematicians, Traders, Businessmen etc. They are the people with tons of experience, knowledge and wisdom.
Then, there is the other 42% people aged between 0-25yrs, who might want to become a successful Engineers, Doctors, Academics, Bankers, Scientists, Astronauts, etc. But they need guidance. They need people to teach, tutor, coach, guide and mentor them. So, here is the challenge!! How do these 42% people bridge the social, economic & geographic barriers to reach the previous 41% group of people?
Well, one of the way people have been solving this issue is by Re-Location. Thus, you find many students from India, China, Japan, Middle-East etc. going to countries like USA, UK for studies. Let’s not dig deeper into the pros & cons of Re-locations, but atleast agree that, not everyone can afford that.
TutStu is an entire paradigm shift in the world of learning. It’s a new-age educational revolution, leveraging on use of internet. It’s a website and platform using which, the 41% of world population can teach and transfer their knowledge to the remaining 42% population of the world.
The 41% world population aged 26-55yrs, the knowledgeable individuals, the 3.2billion people, will henceforth be addressed as ‘Tutors’. While, the 42% world population aged below 25yrs, the knowledge seekers, the 3.4billion people, be henceforth be addressed as ‘Student’.
Why TutStu is tag-lined, Knowledge Democracy?
No, we are not creating another country/state/nation. Knowledge Democracy is just an idea. We have borrowed the basic concept of Democracy “Of the People, By the People, For the People”. It’s a form of governance, and that’s exactly what we want in TutStu.
Few users of TutStu will declare themselves as Tutors (thus “Of the People”), some other users will choose/testify/follow (thus “By the People”) and the Tutors would deliver knowledge to the Students (thus “For the People”).
TutStu is governed by the principles of Democracy. Thus the tagline Knowledge Democracy.
To use technology, experience and expertise to unify world's knowledge, bridge cross-geographic knowledge gap and make learning accessible, affordable & enjoyable for all.
• To crowd-source knowledge and collate all knowledgeable individual from around the globe, in a marketplace.
• To democratize knowledge and make it easily accessible for learners.
• To become a one-stop solution for online learning.
