Kuvu Tutors joins a host of top education bodies that have moved toward harnessing the internet to reach a wider student base and to create a more agile and accessible learning environment.
The dotcom is the first company to use the new Saypage online video conferencing platform. This not only allows a High Definition video and audio link between learner and teacher, it also has a built-in payment system, allowing for safe and convenient financial transactions, and teaching tools, such as instant document-sharing, meaning that tutors have at their fingertips everything they need for running effective sessions.
The company is in many ways the first of its kind. It specialises in one-to-one online support for students studying the IB Diploma Programme, International A-Level and IGCSE. Unlike other tutoring companies, though, Kuvu also offers support for students seeking help in experiential and practical learning, such as public speaking, community service projects, students journalism, and language learning. Finally, tutors are on hand to provide guidance in the all-important field of university applications. Kuvu prides itself on recruiting only the best international teachers, all of whom are experienced, qualified, and passionate professionals, and are used the rigorous demands of the international education world.
Tutors also offer live online ‘events’, which are accessible via iPhones, iPads, and other mobile devices, and participants can interact with proceedings, ask questions, and respond to the ideas of others.
Kuvu has signed up around 60 teachers already, and has established links with prestigious international schools in order to help raise the academic performance of their students. Users have commented on the ease of use of the platform, and the way in which it allows for ‘precision targeting’ of problem areas that can quickly be resolved and mastered. In addition, there is the sense that Kuvu has succeeded in creating a community of international users, where experiences and learning strategies are shared, and ideas and tips passed on so that others can benefit from them.
Co-Founder, Michael Dunn says, "Kuvu is about three things: first, supporting students as they contend with the challenges of tough educational programmes, second, promoting the values of internationalism, and third, helping students to extend their skills beyond the classroom."
