“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” – John Dewey
Remember those good old school days, when the major purpose of our life was to have highest collection of Pokemon tazos and not to worry about our future jobs. But even that time we all dreaded learning Math and most of us used to go to private tuitions, ran most of the time by Mom’s highly educated friend.
Cuemath is an edtech startup which caters to this very need of connecting potential women tutors to students. Cuemath’s curriculum focuses on firstprinciples learning by employing technology-driven content platform along with offline tutoring by its certified teacher base. According to Manan Khurma, Founder of Cuemath, an IIT Delhi alumnus, company’s positioning is focused only on math, and employ technology, proprietary content, and offline distribution to enable the best learning outcomes.
Any qualified woman professional who applies for the program is selected on her profile and undergoes Cuemath’s training program and after successfully completing the program, they are certified as Cuemath tutor. A batch of maximum of 8 students is allotted to the teacher and the curriculum is designed for LKG to 8th standard students.
Proper course material that resonates with the education boards of India is provided to students and assessment is done through regular quizzes on tabs which share the whole analysis of strong and improvement areas.
So, Cuemath is not just a tuition wherein completion of school curriculum is the primary focus, but a place where the child’s overall aptitude development is taken into consideration by involving them into Mathematical Puzzles and reasoning based test.
Cuemath has 80 employees across Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Chennai. Growing over 4X in six months, the startup plans to get to 5000 teachers by March 2017. Again the idea is very simple, to organise a highly potential unorganised market, and in a field like education, which requires human presence, technology should act as an enabler to the solution, not the solution itself.
