We are a team of university students from Zimbabwe and Italy.
We are addressing the low pass rates in secondary schools that use the Cambridge system. Our solution is a peer2peer micro tutorship where students who understand can help students who do not.
We designed a mobile application but we are open to associate with an existing platform.
The prototype will take place first in Zimbabwe.
How do we ensure Quality of the answers?
Chronic shortage of teachers creates gaps in knowledge of students.
The pass rate is particularly low compared to other countries (in the region and more generally in the world).
We noticed an increase in the access to internet and mobile phones.
The problem we aim to solve is the low pass rate from "O" level to "A" level. According to the Cambridge system the access to university is granted only for students with at least two "A" level subjects.
This problem is caused by high student to teacher ratio. Since the prive lessons are costly, we believe that there is a need for free specific assistance.
Q. Why use the peer to peer tutor app?
A. We believe that students that have aced their exams are in a fantastic position to support their peers. The evidence from the Education Endowment Foundation demonstrates an additional 5+ months progress from peer to peer learning.
Q. Is this just cheating?
A. No, the tutors will help expand your child’s thinking on the problem they are trying to solve and provide, as appropriate, detailed feedback and guidance.
Q. Is it safe?
A. All of our tutors are verified before starting. All questions and answers are moderated.
