We started working on the idea for Tuteria in late 2013 when we realized how difficult it was to connect with people who can teach various subjects, skills and topics you want to learn.
Like a father of 3 kids who told us that despite his busy schedule as a manager in a top firm, he has had to resort to tutoring his kids himself because he hadn't been able to find a tutor for them in over 3 months, even though they live close to the University of Ibadan where there are literally thousands of people who have the competence and passion to tutor his kids. We felt compelled to bridge that gap.
Or like Dami, a working professional who paid â‚¦70,000 for 6 weeks of ICAN tutoring for which the tutor, painfully, began skipping lessons after the 2nd week. Plus Dami also wants to learn how to swim, dance salsa and cook Afang, but has no clue where to find someone to teach her. We wanted to make it very easy, reliable and safe to connect with quality private instructors to learn what matters to you.
On the other hand, people who can teach these subjects and skills had no platform where they could be found - but not anymore. Tuteria has evolved from more than 16 months of delicate planning, interviewing hundreds of people across Nigeria, writing complex code and tweaking the plan to ensure we create a trustworthy platform that reliably connects both parties in a way that you can be proud of.
