DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A WEB BASED APPLICATION TUTOR FINDER SYSTEM
Peer tutoring between students in similar age groups has received positive reviews from educators all over the world as an intervention to support student learning outside of the typical classroom setting, even though teachers continue to be the primary facilitator of learning at every level of education. Peer tutoring, according to studies, is a useful technique for developing academic skills with someone your own age. (2015) Dodge K, Farkas G, Fryer RG, Guryan As a result, numerous online tutor scheduling and appointment tools have emerged for the convenience of potential tutors and students. Since virtually everyone already owns a smartphone, it is also incredibly handy for individuals to set up appointments wherever they are and whenever they want to, which is why many developers produce mobile scheduling software.
Students needing help staying on track academically and struggling in a course can receive tutoring from the academic assistance department of their school. Students who would wish to use the school’s tutorial services can schedule an appointment by emailing their academic support staff. Even if tutorial programs are available, the typical way to get a tutor is to go in person to the office of student affairs or academic support staff, schedule an appointment online, via email, or via text message. Prior to hiring a tutor, it has not yet been investigated to obtain a list of tutors with their qualifications and reviews from past students who were their tutees. Additionally, some institutions give pupils better academic support by consolidating all instructors in one place and offering tutoring by appointment only Uddin MP, Nadim M, Imd, Afjal MI. (2013)
Furthermore, none of the scheduling methods currently in use have addressed concerns about whether or not the methods could be safe for both the tutor and tutee. Students’ safety is not always guaranteed in a private tutoring session, particularly when sessions are performed off-campus with no adequate oversight of the tutoring location. While the majority of tutorial appointment apps may offer competent tutors, they do not guarantee a moderated atmosphere that is regularly watched over by staff members.
Therefore, the goal of this project is to create an improved web-based tutor search system. GrabTutor will offer a list of available tutors together with information about their areas of specialization and performance reviews from former students. Instead of asking family members or friends, a parent can quickly find tutors for their child using this program. Instead of waiting days or for a response from someone else, parents would receive their results immediately. Parents will choose a tutor for their child based on a number of factors, including the instructor’s gender, educational background, specialization, and command of the English language. Additionally, by organizing their schedule, this program will assist tutors in coordinating and saving time. In order to allocate teachers and pupils in the same area, the application uses location preference as the primary attribute. The application’s key characteristics include maintainability, where instructor and parent data will be maintained by a database, the ability to modify uploaded profiles based on needs, and responsiveness, dependability, and user-friendliness.
For students, the current manual approach for selecting tutors is a very time-consuming and exhausting process.
The current web-based system is inefficient because it primarily serves as an advertisement for the tutor.
Not responsive enough for students to use a laptop or website to find their tutor
