I just got an email from Robert Einspruch from the "Ziizoo.com" website.
It is like a marketplace for tutoring: both students and tutors can join up. The students get to choose from the list of tutors (based on price and ratings).
The site is new (still in "alpha"), so not much more info is available. Look like a good idea?
Thank you Rod for mentioning our site. We will be launching ziizoo beta on 9/15 and are really excited. As mentioned above it is a marketplace for tutoring - so tutors can set their own rates, own subjects and hours. We also provide all the tools to tutor students through the browser - online text-chat, audio-chat and whiteboards. Our goal is to give students an option to inexpensive overseas online tutors and give tutors access to an open platform that provides them with all the tools they need to compete with the overseas tutors.
Please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Feedback is welcome!!!
