Published on June 3, 2014 um 10:48
Summary of your idea
According to the National Bureau of Statistics,almost 80% attend tutorial lessons,due to the poor educational system.The cost averages the 1/9th of a familys annual income.Due to recession many students cannot afford lessons resulting a 30% lower chance of entering university.Many students live in remote areas and cannot attend lessons 1.Use of technology to achieve a low cost operation 2.Quality education through the careful selection of tutors,use of technological programs,participation in educational projects 3.Equality in education as students from remote areas will be able to access tutors 4.Freelessons to students from low income families 5.40-50%lower rates than the convetional tutorials
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
1.Offer lessons to at least 400 students in three years. 2.Help a significant number of students (at least 150) by offering free of charge lessons. 3.Offer more than 60 free webinars in three years. 4.Participate in educational programs/projects/competitions with our students. 5.Learn the students how to think,not what to think Margaret Mead -by guiding them through mentors programs and team projects. Tutorial Gate can later spread to Cyprus and other countries. Studies have shown that eastern Europe is the largest growing market in distance learning.I strongly believe that many organizations/tutorials will adopt the idea.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Operational details: 1.Tutors will work as freelancers 2.The maintentance cost of Tutorial Gate is very small (around 20-25 students will be needed in order to achieve sustainability) Sustainability will be achieved by : 1.Tuitions of the students (lessons will be 40-50% cheaper than other tutorials). 2.Donations/payments/funding from individuals,organizations and NGOs.
