AkariTutoring has developed an online digital whiteboard where students and tutors come together to engage in a "virtual classroom." Their whiteboard simulates a real-life whiteboard, allowing anyone in the classroom to communicate and draw out problems. With the ability to support one-to-one or one-to-many types of lessons, their virtual classroom can connect students from all across the world together who share a common characteristics:
Founded by Nero Nguyen, Tran Pham, and Justin Nguyen, these three individuals came together with a mindset to start a business that will outcut the high rates of all the other major tutoring companies out there and also against the freelance tutors. Rates for tutoring in the Fairfax averages around $40/hour. This is mainly due to the high commute and traveling requirements within the area and to make the tutor's time worthwhile, rates are this high. Many students do not wish to travel ~30 minutes one-way to a students house to spend an hour of instruction only to receive $20. It's just not worth their time.
With AkariTutoring, they believe that education should not have a price on it. Many of the world's problems stem from the lack of education. In fact, the United States has even fallen in the world ranking of education as referenced in this article in the HuffingtonPost ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/
AkariTutoring strives to help improve the economy also by reducing the number of students in school without a job who are "broke, busted, and disgusted." Their service creates job for many high school and college students who wish to contribute nothing more than their academic knowledge. Students are paid anywhere between $10 - $25 per hour on a part-time basis (less than 40 hours per week) which provides enough pocket change for them to go to school comfortably and still be able to do the things they love without significant financial restrictions.
