Ignite > Academic is relaunching our platform offering as TutorFire.Us
Help Re-define the future of platform
At the new TutorFire, our burning ambition is to redefine platform tutoring for the age of AI (which wrote this, by the way). We believe that human professionals still have an important role to play in helping students reach their full potential, but that today's commoditized tutoring platforms will not add value for either educators or students in the AI-driven race to the bottom on price that is already upon us.
Since we opened up the platform to new tutors almost a year ago, usage metrics tell a clear story: we have not added sufficient value to our tutors to keep them active on the platform. We have not found the right alchemy yet to turn straw into gold.
Therefore, we are re-positioning TutorFire as an artisanal, boutique service, where real-world industry professionals share expertise students can't get from AI or school-based learning.
We aim to raise pricing, and tutor compensation, significantly.
We also aim to winnow down the platform to a hard core of entrepreneurial subject-matter experts who are excited to contribute to the new vision.
We value your input in this process, so please fill out this tutor survey to get your information into our new system and help us continue to redefine platform tutoring.
