TUTORBIN IS TRANSFORMING EDUCATION BY MAKING IT MORE PERSONAL

Published

on

The global market for EdTech is likely to cross USD 400 billion by 2025 as per HolonIQ. The pandemic has accelerated the growth and adoption of EdTech with online homework solutions seeing immense growth.

The market leader in the segment is TutorBin, which was founded by Ankit Gahlawat along with Parveen Lather and Vishal Kumar. It has a product portfolio across social enterprises, cloud accounting, e-learning, content intelligence, analytics and social networking domains. “We are driven by the global impact achieved through international outlook of our products that foster and nimble the agility required behind doing businesses these days,” says Ankit.

With offices in US and India, when Ankit started TutorBin, he realised the importance of merging education with technology to provide its end-users with the best help, as quickly as possible. He decided to aid and enhance the level of education in a productive platform, which will help students and universities to use the predictive and planned elements within their products. They wanted to let their users utilise every area of education using the best technology.

“Entrepreneurship can be a change agent in business and academics. TutorBin helps students with an entrepreneurial spirit in the science, engineering, arts, thesis and other areas of study specialties develop the knowledge and connect with mentors who can help them become more skilled in their academic tasks. In just four years, TutorBin has become an integral part of the student experience and key to strategic direction,” said TutorBin Managing Director Ankit Gahlawat.

Private Tutoring can really help. Education has been essentially designed to be a one-to-many solution. No two individuals are the same. In fact, many people learn differently. There are some who are excellent at self-learning. There are some who need hand-holding.

Ankit adds, “Private tutoring requires tutors to adjust according to the learning needs and preferences of individuals. There are many tutors who are excellent at understanding their students and tailor their sessions according to them. Once they engage the students to help apply the knowledge on their own, they start seeing success. Our job is to keep them interested and help them understand the concepts. They will keep getting better with each passing day.

There are many reasons that people struggle in their studies and benefit from private tutoring. There are plenty of foreign students who would perhaps struggle with the language and rigor of learning. The schooling system across the states is also very different and many students struggle when they start in the universities. I personally don’t find the schooling system to be as challenging as the university system. Hence, the drop-out rates are significant in university students. Some students also need support during their schooling.

No human likes falling behind others. When they are unable to cope-up, they may also lose confidence and lag behind even more. As per my experience, most students are able to build acumen to cope up and be more regular in their studies, there are some students who need more support than the others.

Private tutoring works very well. In fact, it works so well that I have been able to make a good business out of it. TutorBin started as a small initiative to help students that were falling behind others. Now we have a roster of thousands of teachers that are helping students with their private tuition and homework. In almost 100 percent of the cases, we have seen a significant increase in the grade of the students.”

CREATING TUTORBIN

Ankit Gahlawat, Vishal and Parveen have known each other for over nine years now. Impressed by the fact that Ankit was one of the early adopters of the Internet in India, the founders decided to work more closely with each other to bring a revolution in the education sector with the best technological use. Thus, they decided to launch TutorBin in India in 2017.

TutorBin is a global online homework help provider. It basically deals with assisting students in completing the assignments with the help of expert guidance. TutorBin has over 45,000+ expert tutors, connected globally. It aims to provide the best academic support and solve problems quickly in real-time and make sure the student never misses his deadline. Being a 4 years old company, it has enhanced its expertise in Engineering, Maths, Science, English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, Lab Reports, Essay Writing, and other areas of support needed by the students.

CALMING THE NERVES!

Published

on

There are days when you wake up to a sombre morning feeling disheartened and uncertain. It gets difficult to deal with incomprehensible situations and the difficulties of life, consequently leading to a bleak aura. The cynical approach and the proclivity to belittle our existence result in emotional instability. We often have to deal with situations where life takes a bizarre turn, which is the exact opposite of what we expected or something strong enough to affect us emotionally.

Is there any ideal way to deal with the minor stresses that one experiences on a daily basis? What is the way to resolve discontent?

PERSPECTIVE SHIFT

While it may not be ideal to reach out to medicine every time we experience bouts of low energy and mood, a perspective shift could certainly help. A small shift from a tangled thought process to a positive perspective can bring a considerable change into our lives.

In the words of Robert Browning, “Fail I alone, in words and deeds? Why, all men strive and who succeeds? “ We tend to measure our capabilities and achievements on the pretext of the conventional standards we have been fed since childhood, but why can’t it be different? The aforesaid lines of the poet are to teach us to look beyond the social directions and to understand that the path of success can be different for every individual.

EXERCISE

Dealing with anxiety often seems far-fetched, but there are solutions to it. A good workout is a perfect way to combat indolence and be productive. Physical activity produces endorphins and dopamine, also called happy hormones, and is a perfect antidote to stress.

MANIFESTATION

When Paulo Coelho said, “And, when you want something, the entire universe conspires to help you achieve it,” he was talking about manifestation. This might sound spurious, but a belief in the process and in oneself are magical.

SOCIAL MEDIA DETOX

Oscillating in the virtual world full of validation builds an alarming pressure to push us to fit into the trends. Be it peer pressure or be it FOMO, is paralysing our sense to reason things resulting in restlessness. The thirst of those in the race needs to be controlled.

MEDITATION

Meditation is an apt path for attaining peace of mind and serenity. Being purposeful, disciplined, and positive is synonymous with meditation.

When things get tough, we must tell ourselves, “this is just a bend, and the end.

RENTAL BOYFRIEND

Just shell out some cash and you get a rental boyfriend. Yes, you heard it right. In Tokyo, if you have the money, finding a boyfriend is as easy.

The Rent-a-Boyfriend comes in three models- Fresh ($40/hour), Regular ($48/hour), and Special ($56/hour). These include activities like shopping, hugs, and hand-holding. Earlier in 2018, a 29-year-old named Kaushal Prakash from Mumbai launched Rent a Boy Friend (RABF) app. The app claimed to provide users with ‘friends’ on an hourly paid service. As per the founder, the app is meant to help people with mental health issues.

These worms are either sold directly to fishermen to use as bait or sold to universities and other institutions that use the worms for teaching and research purposes. In the US, the median salary for worm pickers ranges from $17,510 to $38,630, with a median salary of $23,750.

A professional sleeper is a person who is paid to sleep while scientists research sleep disorders. While the human body is asleep, doctors study the brain and other activities. If we talk about the salaries of professional sleepers, the top earners earn $107,000, and the average pay scale is $60,024. Earlier in 2016, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) offered someone the chance to stay in bed for 70 days for a salary of £11,000. 

WATER SLIDE TESTER

A water slide tester job is one of the most enviable jobs out there. The job of a water slide tester is to check if the water slides in hotels, water parks, and theme parks are both fun and safe.

Are you anxious ?

Anxiety

There are days when you wake up to a sombre morning feeling disheartened, drenched in despair and uncertainty. It gets difficult to deal with incomprehensible situations and the difficulties of life, consequently leading to a bleak aura. The cynical approach and the proclivity to belittle our existence result in emotional instability. We often have to deal with situations where life takes a bizarre turn, which is the exact opposite of what we expected or something strong enough to break us emotionally.

Is there any ideal way to deal with that small pain of anxiety in your chest? What is the way to resolve discontent? It would have been so much easier if there were medications or a list of pharmacopeia to alleviate the entire emotional turmoil.

Growing up in an environment where mental health and emotional stability have always been trivialised and overlooked makes it difficult for us to communicate ourselves or even seek help.

Perhaps the pharmaceuticals cannot help us out, but a perspective shift could. A small shift from a tangled thought process to a positive perspective can bring a considerable change into our lives.

In the words of Robert Browning, “Fail I alone, in words and deeds? Why, all men strive and who succeeds? ” We tend to measure our capabilities and achievements on the pretext of the conventional standards we have been fed since childhood, but why can’t it be different? The aforesaid lines of the poet are to teach us to look beyond the social directions and make ourselves understand that the path of success can be different for every individual. There can be certain instances like a person working hard to get materialistic comforts while another person defies all those materialistic comforts in order to be happy. We should not allow societal regulations to limit our potential.

Dealing with anxiety often seems far-fetched, but there are solutions to it. Workout or exercise is a perfect way to combat indolence and be productive. Physical activity produces Endorphins and dopamine, also called happy hormones, and is a perfect antidote to stress.

Manifestation is yet another remedy played down. When Paulo Coelho said, “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it,” he was talking about manifestation. This might sound spurious, but a belief in the process and a belief in oneself is magical.

Life has yet to go, things are yet to happen, this is just a bend, this isn’t the end.
