PostSubject: Seeking Partners in Education Business   Tue Jan 07, 2014 1:05 am

Dear  enterprising Teachers/ Tutors/ Graduates,

Currently I'm a part-time Sec Math teacher/ tutor.  My special interest in Education research is in  "21st Century Education".

I'm looking for  Business Partners in the "Online Tutoring" (using video conferencing) business to complement me in Sec 'O' level English & Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), and  'A' level English, Maths, Science &  Economics.

Compared to conventional tutoring in which the teacher has to be physically present with the students, online real-time face-to-face eLearning can reach out even to the rest of the world !

However please take note that this eLearning Pedagogy (methods of teaching) is a very different ballgame from  Traditional Tutoring.  Therefore if you insist on being a pure academic teacher/ tutor in the traditional sense, or that you are not keen on Modern Education at all, then I would advise you/ your friends not to join us (as a Partner).

I'm not limited to just having a small business among ourselves, but intend to grow it into a viable enterprise in S'pore and possibly overseas.

Therefore I also welcome any Partners who are keen on  Business Development, although my initial calculation shows that our startup revenue will not be able to sustain more than 2 non-academic persons in the beginning. Nevertheless I still look forward to having your talents in our team, and to hear your opinions in any group discussion that we may hold.

Ideally the Business Partner should have some/ all of these essential requirements :

*  Good knowledge of the subject he/ she wish to coach in.

*  Computer and Internet savvy.

*  Share the same vision in Modern Education, both locally and in global context.

*  Have some knowledge/ experience in  Life-skills.


The initial startup capital of only about  $10k is indeed very small, but I hope to share out all costs equally among the stakeholders. Please note that this amount may increase significantly with growing  Marketing activities to attract students and parents. However the business potential is huge...

In the tiny small city state of S'pore alone, the statistics in 2011 show that private education, especially Tuition, is worth more than $820 million, and this value is expected to grow to about one $1 Billion a year by now !

Worldwide, according to Forbes, it says that  "Global Private Tutoring Market Will Surpass $102.8 Billion by 2018".  You can read it in :
forbes.com/sites/jamesmarshallcrotty/2012/10/30/global-private-tutoring-market-will-surpass-102-billion-by-2018/


If you know of anyone who may be interested in this education business using technology, please kindly pass on this information to him/ her.

Thank you.
