New age platforms like GuruQ India help students balance fun and academics during the vacation to prepare for milestone years
New Delhi: 13-06-2018- School vacation is a time for most students to rejoice. However, for those preparing for their Class 10 and 12 boards, vacations are bound to elicit a mixed response. While many feel like enjoying with friends and family, studies and preparations for the impending ‘big year’ beckon. Parents too sweat over how to ensure that their young children make the most of the free time when schools are closed. Yet, many feel it is unfair to give up completely on indulging in any fun activity that could provide some recreation before schools re-open and the drudgery of academic routine sets in.
This is where some of the unique EdTech platforms are changing the way young students can balance studies while making the most of vacations, especially for milestone years like Class 10 and 12. One such platform is GuruQ – a Delhi based start-up that has a unique digital integrated platform where students and parents can scout for tutors in their locality and make an informed choice based on past reviews and ratings for each tutor. GuruQ addresses the need for a single, simplified and cohesive ed-tech solution that provides both online and offline tutoring. Students can leverage the freedom of working on subjects at their own time and line-up a comprehensive schedule. GuruQ also helps students manage timetables and assess progress. During vacations, this can especially be a boon allowing students to spend quality time with loved ones and manage study schedules too.
Parents too can rest assured because GuruQ allows students to choose if they want to take classes online or offline classes and create a customized packages as per their perfered tutors’ availability. So even if the student is out of town, it is easy to schedule classes since there is the convenience of any time, anywhere tutoring, managing and scheduling classes and sending and receiving assignments & tests online.
For parents who fret over their children’s development, GuruQ also offers a system where they can access progress reports of their children on a regular basis to keep a tab on the performance. Another highlight that works well especially during holidays is the option of students or parents posting their specific tuition needs which are then broadcast to tutors across the platform and instant classes can be booked with tutors to clear doubts and for revision. The inimitable dashboard allows everything to be in one place for both student and tutors.
Addressing this concern Ms. Minal Anand, CEO & Founder – GuruQ India says, “GuruQ is a unique platform that allows students as well as their parents the convenience of home tutoring without having to travel to a particular place. This especially works for Class 10 and 12 students during their vacations because they can plan study schedules even while they are on vacation without the fear of having to miss out on classes. They can line up classes in coordination with the tutors as per their time which means they can get the best of both worlds: academics as well as a little fun during the holidays.”
So, for all those parents who worry about how to manage children’s timetables to help them make the most of vacations while balancing studies, EdTech platforms like GuruQ can be your answer!
