Tandem Tuition is a market place for students to find tutors and a platform for eTutoring using Android tablets. Using their simple app, students can get study help from experienced tutors on-demand.
Using a mixture of interactive whiteboards, voice calling and note taking, students get an engaging learning experience with the help of a tutor. We caught up with Andrew Waelen, Founder and CEO of Tandem Tuition to find out more about their app.
As part of offering a richer, on-demand, app-based tutoring experience, Tandem Tuition uses Sinch to provide the voice chat feature of our app during lessons. Students can call a tutor and speak with them during the lesson, as well as writing on a shared, interactive whiteboard and taking notes. This allows for one-on-one lessons and better explanation of difficult topics.
Andrew told me “We started looking for voice chat providers very early on in the development, so the app was built with Sinch in mind.”
I asked Andrew how challenging he found the Sinch SDK to work with. “To be honest it was pretty straight forward, mostly because Sinch provides a step by step guide on implementation as well as examples, so there was no guesswork involved.”
Based out of New Zealand and launching in the UK, Andrew and his team of 3 are continuing their work on the app and creating more tools “to make lessons easier and more intuitive.” The Android app is about to launch and they are looking to build iOS and Windows apps in the coming months.
“Sinch is easy to use, easy to integrate and it just works!”
Tandem Tuition is almost ready to launch. Head to their website to learn more.
