KOCHI: With the end-of-the-year examinations and entrance tests round the corner, students can get free 24X7 tutoring with the help of a mobile app. HashLearn Now, an Android app developed by a Bengaluru-based startup, allows students to connect instantly and have their subject-related doubts solved by tutors from institutions such as the IIT and BITS. The service, available 24X7, covers Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for students of Classes VIII to XII, covering school examinations of all Boards and State or National Entrance tests.
The learning method is simple-the student chooses a topic and uploads an image of the problem they want resolved to start the session, almost instantly they are connected to the subject matter expert. After the problem is resolved and the session closes, they can rate their tutors.
The app also contains thousands of free practice questions. The app can also be downloaded from Google Play Store, by giving a missed call to 76761-87100 or by SMSing ‘GETNOW’ to 56263.
Founded by education entrepreneur Jayadev Gopalakrishnan and technologist Gokul Janga, HashLearn specialises in building products around education, with current focus on the test preparation market. In light of the upcoming exam season, the service is being offered for free for one month to all students who sign up until March 31 to help them with their revisions.
“Our vision is to provide a high-quality private tutor to every student at scale, on-demand and at an affordable price. Private one-on-one tutoring is affordable only to a privileged few in India and quality issues are a big concern. For those who attend conventional coaching classes, the issues include lack of personalization and the unavailability of the tutor to solve individual doubts. HashLearn Now addresses all of that at the click of a button,” said Jayadev Gopalakrishnan, CEO, HashLearn.
