Abstract

The project will make students no longer have difficulty finding a tutor that can help them with whatever subject matter they're studying because most of the tutoring options are hosted through our site. Also, because tutoring is expensive, we will provide a good project enabling students to negotiate prices with tutors, which is a major component of our solution and yet another measure of success. This project enables students to quickly and easily pick up tutoring as a side job to earn some extra money. This is entirely at the benefit of the students and the institution too, particularly at WOU since there's so few tutors available at the tutoring center and because tutoring for 300 level and higher courses isn't offered. When I think of this project, I see us using our solution to build an academic community of students helping other students, where tutors are happy because they get paid, and students are happy because they get help. This project would be interesting to pursue, because all activities will be under WOU supervision.
