Explain your project in details:
The tutors and the students registered in TutorAja are both university students from the same university. Tutors in TutorAja should enroll the lessons that they can teach. To be accepted as a tutor, the minimum score is B + for each lesson that they want to teach. Scores verification can be done by screenshots of their lessons' scores in their respective university website account. If tutors pass the verification, then the name of the tutor, course, and list of lessons to be taught will be directly enrolled in the TutorAja database and website. As a student who wants to get a tutor, students must first enroll in the courses they want to study. If TutorAja database already have tutors who can teach the lesson that they want, then, TutorAja team will contact and introduce tutor and student to later exchange contact names. Students will pay first to TutorAja and after the teaching and learning process complete then TutorAja will transfer the money to tutor's account.

I also have a passion to educate and coach people around me around investments, businesses, and the creative economy. I want to contribute to the advancement of Indonesian youth. Advancing their education, and advancing their economies. This can be done by creating a startup. I see startup as a solution through technology to make the life of its users better. In my opinion, the impact of startup will be even greater if there is collaboration from startup founders, community, and government. Together we can improve our own nation, and eventually we help solve the global issues by 2030.
