Tutors+ is Bridging the Gap Between Tutors and Students

Posted On April 29, 2020

Insite Malta is in collaboration with JAYE Malta to promote the innovative Start Up Companies you all need to hear about!

They are a group of five students at the University of Malta. Whereas Francesca Ellul, Eric Anthony Ellul Sullivan and Martina Erika Mallia are students enrolled in the Faculty of Economics, Management and Accountancy, Ryan Camilleri and Francesco Borg Bonello form part of the Department of Information and Communication Technology enrolled in Artificial Intelligence.

Other than the fact that it is a compulsory study unit, for Francesca, Eric and Martina, being aspiring entrepreneurs, they aim to gain any hands-on experience in the world of business and running an organisation, therefore the JAYE Start Up Program is inevitably the best and most exciting opportunity for them. For Ryan and Francesco, having never created an App, this gives them the right opportunity to learn how to do so, whilst giving them an insight into the business world.

Tutors+ aims to deliver an app to consumers, that displays all available tuition relating to academia. The main intent of this is to create a hub for education and personal development.Therefore, seeking tuition is being facilitated in a more reliable and timely manner. Moreover, this would also be a benefit for the tutor promoting his course/tuition over the app. Essentially, this software would list all the available tuition, limited to those who are willing to apply through the app, making it easier for them to be found by the user and easier for the user to find his desired tuition. 

They app also gives guardians and students reassurance and peace of mind by making it mandatory that each tutor listed on the app has a warrant or qualification and has a clean police conduct. The app also gathers tutors beyond academia, which makes it a first in its industry. 

Initially it was a challenging task to challenge both University and JAYE deadlines, but throughout the few months we have helped each other through various team meetings in order to divide our work and set up internal personalised deadlines. This program is also enabling us to get clearer insight in the world of business, challenging our innovation skills and presentation skills, amongst others. Given that JAYE is giving us the opportunity to meet with people in several events, we also wish to obtain new contacts to expand our network. ” the team stated in their interview.

Despite their enthusiasm to see the outcome of this competition, their aim is to continue developing the app in order to take it to the market and accommodate their customers. 

Make sure to follow the JAYE Awards on the 3rd of May at 18:00 via Facebook Live to see which team take the title of StartUp of the Year and represent Malta at the European Enterprise Competition 2020!
