Uber for tutoring is a natural progression from the Uber for X style craze that has taken over the mobile app and hi-tech industry. Disrupting education is something that has been a long time coming, especially with standardized testing and scores becoming such a huge part of education and culture.
Although the market for education and tutoring based apps has been quite slow. Apps in the past such as TutorSpree have actually failed (though they were more online platforms then they were mobile apps). But it seems that the education and student market is now ripe for an “Uber for tutor” style mobile app for tutoring in and outside the classroom – whether for high school, college, or grad school.
