I'm currently working in Japan. And I realize that Japanese people have a lot of demands to learn a new language, be it English or Vietnamese.
I have a simple idea of an application to let people sign up, book a lesson with a tutor (who can be a long-term tutor) with a fee decided by the company or negotiable with the tutor.
The lesson is one-to-one basis. Teachers are going to sign up with me with a complete profile, experience and program. Location is to be decided, whether at home or at a coffee shop.
The idea is to make it really simple for users to book a lesson. Just swipe left or right to choose a tutor (for the first version, just be it. The later version can have more function like location based or whatever matching technique)
We should collect the fee by users through credit card and pay the tutors to their paypal or bank account. And some percentage is kept by the company, say 5%.
Rating and comments for both users and tutors are also implemented. Just simple, the best is 5 stars.
So, as for the first version, I'm looking for an iPhone developer who can design the and make the application in the version 1.0 like I just described. Ideas are welcome. I'm flexible and entrepreneur driven mind set.
Let's do it and see what will happen.
