Project
Background

StudyGate is a hub for tutors and students, providing online tutoring and questionnaire services. Freelance tutors can now have the best of both worlds with the a stable income and flexible timings. This is accomplished through platform connection tools and payment management system. These tools take the pressure off of tutors looking for paid clients and allows them to draw directly from StudyGate’s learning network.

The mission is to join competent tutors with ambitious students looking for enhanced learning opportunity, all under the umbrella of a single platform. No longer will tutors have to scour the depths of the Internet looking for clients, and no longer will students have to worry about whether they will be connected to a first-rate tutor.
