10-min Tutor — Edutech

On-demand tutor app with video-telephony & marketplace functionalities

10-min Tutor

Overview

When Singapore first implemented Home-Based Learning (HBL) during the Covid-19, the Tueetor team found that many students faced difficulties adapting to the new form of learning. We then worked with Tueetor, providing the technical expertise to fast track development and make 10MT a reality. 10MT is a platform where students pay $10 for a 10 minutes consultation session with educators.

Solution

The new solution empowers students to access affordable help from certified teachers instantly, live and 24/7. Booking a certified tutor is easy and takes only two easy steps.

First, students select a subject and level. Next, they just have to confirm and start the session. Students can use the video function in the app and show the question to the teachers. The app is integrated with an option for students to ‘favourite’ teachers so that they can connect to a specific teacher directly in the future.

We are proud to be working with Tueetor to bring affordable education to more students.

Profile

Han Sing Tan

10MT Founder & CEO

My first project with Hipster was in 2017, when we were looking into ways to better our Tueetor app, it was a tall order, as the app was already gaining some popularity in the community back then, and we did not want to "reinvent the wheel" too much, for fear of losing it. It turned out to be one of the best decisions we have ever made. Not only did Nikhil and his team create a more intuitive and scaleable version, in a nutshell, they made it elegant. So complete, the Tueetor app went on to bag the Smart App Award for 2019. Hipster has also been instrumental in many groundbreaking features we see later on the app, winning us even more users and accolades. Convinced that the team would continue to shine, I invited them back in 2020 to assist in the development of 10-Minute Tutor - an on demand tutor app that combines both video-telephony and marketplace core functionalities into one. Hipster rose to the challenge. In addition to mobile applications, Nikhil, alongside his talented and committed team members, also advise and develop some of Tueetor's web stacks. So proficient, responsive and yet affordable in every way, we strongly recommend Hipster to organisations that seek not just a reliable technology provider, but a trustworthy partner.
