About Us

Everyone needs a coach

Usain Bolt, arguably the greatest sprinter of all time has a coach - in case you were wondering it is Glen Mills :-). Glen Mills gives Usain Bolt feedback specific to his running style, technique and start to help him improve. A coach, mentor, tutor does exactly that - give us feedback specific to us so we can improve.

Why is finding the right tutor hard

If everyone needs a coach, why is finding the one who fits your learning style, your schedule, your price point so hard. Tutoring requires-

  1. Discovery - recommendation from a fellow parent on the sidelines of the soccer field or friend
  2. Matching and Scheduling - Through phone calls and email exchanges
  3. Collaboration - Driving to the tutor or learners home, meeting at a coffee shop or online using Skype
  4. Payment - cash or Paypal

The traditional approach is very inefficient. You need to have the right connection and in the right neighborhood.

Challenging the Status Quo

There are numerous opportunities to question the status quo and bring in the Silicon Valley style efficiency, intuitive user experience, smart discovery, transparent pricing, superior collaboration and delivery tools, analytic insights, data driven ratings, seamless payment processing and integrated end-to-end flow.

Time to re-imagine... This was our motivation to build Vagupu, to reimagine the tutoring experience and build a complete online live tutoring marketplace.
