    TutorTime Tutors can be used by both parents and students, as well as teachers conducting classes.
  • Tutors can register through the marketplace, pass an interview and offer their services, classes in the areas in which they specialize.
    Parents and students can also register on the marketplace and choose a suitable tutor, book classes, get a homework assignment, and evaluate the teacher after classes.

  • Client & product

    TutorTime is an Australian based online tutoring marketplace founded by Sophie Whitehouse-Sparks and her team of expert educators.

    The client came to us with an already built app which required further development and support. Our first goal was to make the system work stably for different user roles.

  • Challenges

    In order to make the system stable enough, our team had to solve a number of challenging tasks:

    • Set up a single project infrastructure
    • Transform a major part of the project to use Node.js instead of Ruby on Rails. It made the code more readable, and further changes easier to implement
    • Cooperate with the product team on building new user flows
    • Enlarge the system to satisfy new partners’ (schools) needs
  • Job done

    The A2 Design Team has achieved the following goals while working on the project:

    • Updated the booking flow to a more convenient one
    • Transformed the app code base, so the app became more adaptive to further improvements
    • Enabled the product owner to manage different areas of the app, e.g admin could send notifications to users, download system reports, generate promo codes etc.
    • Developed a white label booking service that helps new partners (schools) to find job for their graduated students
