GuruQ – a one of its kind digital platform that connects tutors and students, was founded with the core objective of creating an enabling environment for quality education. Today, parents and students are usually faced with challenges of finding the right tutors, who can provide quality education, are reliable, have a good teaching background, and suit their budget. Tutors too, have their set of challenges like finding students at their preferred locations, managing erratic schedules, timely assured payments, and many more. As a result a huge gap exists.
As a unique digital platform - GuruQ connects tutors to students and parents as well as addresses the need gaps.
The core objective of GuruQ is to bring convenience and ease in the process of tutor selection for students and their parents; and in turn simplify the work life for thousands of tutors across the capital in the initial stages followed by a pan India expansion of the business model at a later date. To build a 21st century model of education and to attain this level of individualisation, we have used advanced new age methodologies and latest technologies.
Curiosity, I believe, is the key to innovation. It drives you to probe more, discover more, learn more, and subsequently create something like never before. This philosophy has always played a vital role in my life.
During my college education in USA, I saw a dramatic difference in the education system there, vis-à-vis that in India - its quality, the predominant use of digital platform and ground breaking teaching methodologies. Even back home, I witnessed a huge disparity between students who had studied abroad and those who had not. A big reason for this difference is that the educators in India are not well-equipped or well-versed in innovative teaching methods.
It all starts from school education. Although schools in India are making considerable efforts in providing quality education, the teacher to student ratio in schools today does not allow teachers to devote quality time to every student. This demand for personalized attention that today’s curriculums require is met by home tuitions. Today, almost every child has some form of tuition. Hence, it becomes even more important to equip tutors with the latest teaching methodologies and keep them updated with international approaches in contributing to better learning. I knew what I wanted to do. My quest for doing something innovative made me delve deeper, understand the challenges and create a platform that would revolutionise home schooling.
GuruQ aims to do just that. We’re one-of-a-kind digital platform where tutors can connect with and teach students, gain recognition, manage time efficiently and increase earnings. Students and parents can choose tutors on the basis of past reviews and ratings, manage timetables, and assess progress and more. Our esteemed Academic Board will help mentor tutors and provide programs for their continuous evolution. We also plan to work with various NGOs to educate underprivileged children by holding classes in remote rural areas.
We look forward to collaborating with exceptional educators, and endeavour to take GuruQ to new heights, together. John Dewey, the American philosopher, psychologist and education reformer, had said “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”, and I strongly believe that quality education is the only way to create quality lives ahead.
