INDIA – 6 Feb, 2017 – Preply, an international online tutoring and studying platform, announces an opportunity for Indian students and teachers to enhance their careers in a fast-changing, modern world. The website helps people find online teachers of foreign languages, science, humanities, and various hobbies. The wide variety of subjects (from learning English language with the best native speakers from USA and UK through math to art classes and music) is what makes Preply.com unique.
Tutors structure the learning process with simple steps in order to achieve students’ ambitious goals. It is a faster and more effective way than traditional studying in a class or buying courses online.
According to the World Bank, while more than 95 percent of Indian children attend primary school, just 40 percent of Indian adolescents attend secondary school. Preply.com aims to support the “Digital India” initiative by making ongoing learning and development accessible to students across India and providing teachers a platform on which they can share their knowledge.
Commenting on the Indian market, Kirill Bigai, Co-Founder & CEO, says: “Our website provides flexible learning in small blocks curated by tutors to meet the student’s individual goals. This platform also helps freelance, part-time or full-time teachers in India find new students from all over the world and inspires them to build Kaizen-style learning process for their current students. Online courses are not custom-tailored and often give unsatisfactory results, while offline lessons are usually more expensive and time-consuming. At Preply, we keep in pace with transformation of a traditional workplace: our tutors deliver a more specialized and dedicated experience. We believe that continuous improvement can help any person find their role in a modern economy.”
47,000 Preply tutors provide their services to more than 110,000 students. Preply.com offers 27 world languages classes, 13 school subjects, as well as acting, music, and art lessons. German and English language classes are among the most popular within the platform. Prices of lessons on Preply.com vary from 2 to 100 euro per hour. Around 30,000 hours of lessons are held monthly with the help of Preply.
Boston-Berlin-Kyiv based Preply (Techstars Berlin’15) is an educational platform on which you can find online and local tutors. Preply is built on the idea of ongoing improvement: each lesson with tutor is a step on the unique development path. Preply provides services in the educational sector for teachers from all over the world. Preply was created in April 2013 and operates in USA, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Brazil and is about to launch in France and India. Initially, Preply was personally funded by angel investors Arthur Kosten (co-founder of Booking.com) and Semyon Dukach (Techstars Boston). In 2016, Preply.com’s fundraising efforts collected $1.3 million (US) in a Series Seed round led by US and European angel investors and venture companies.
