Finding a good tutor at the college level can be a frustrating process. As someone who’s struggled with the nuances of Financial Accounting, searching for a fellow student who had the time – and patience – to help me figure out liquidity analysis ratios was a shot in the dark. Tutor Assignment, a growing community marketplace catered to college students, is helping to match up struggling students with quality tutors.

Students post an assignment that they’re looking to get help with, then get contacted with bids from verified tutors who have received an A in that course. They can also book a tutoring session directly with the tutor they want. All scheduling and payments are facilitated through the site, so you never have to awkwardly pay or ask for payment during a session.

If you’ve earned an A in a certain class, Tutor Assignment is a great way to monetize your knowledge (traditional tutoring agencies usually take a 50% cut). You can respond on an assignment-by-assignment basis with an offer and make some extra cash.

Founded by Ryan Shank and Matthew Doyle, Tutor Assignment allows students to get fast access to a reliable network of tutors in their area. The budding startup showcased at our Tech Cocktail DC Mixer last week.  You can get started with Tutor Assignment here.
