  • Pros: 

    Gooroo makes tutoring so personalized and so accessible.

    Cons: 

    No idea

    I needed an LSAT tutor ASAP, and that is exactly what I got. I learned the test from scratch and even made a friend out of it. I really don’t know what I would have done had Gooroo not come to my rescue. I can proudly say that I’ll be attending law school in the fall.

    Pros: 

    Gooroo cares. They take the success of their students personally and are there every step of the way to insure the best fit and outcome.

    Cons: 

    I can think of absolutely nothing.

    Gooroo is a first rate test prep and tutoring company, but they have the time to personalize, to care so deeply about the child. It's what you want in educating your child, that those teaching care to understand the person. Gooroo always goes that extra mile.

Hi hunters! 🙌 Thanks for checking us out. I wanted to briefly share about why we created Gooroo. After I served in the Korean army for 2 life-changing years, I returned to college and became increasingly overwhelmed by my coursework as the semester progressed. I knew I needed help specifically tailored to my hands-on learning style, and I realized I didn’t even know where to start looking. That’s when I realized Gooroo needed to exist. Our proprietary algorithm matches tutors to students based on fit, and our machine-based learning tools allow us to assist each student throughout their entire learning journey. We not only want to help with school but also want to spark excitement for lifetime learning. This is just our first step, and we appreciate all of your support and feedback. Hugs and loves, Scott

Gooroo has been with us every step of the way, caring about the success of our child—from the first moments of ordinary test prep, to the more challenging time of helping our our son to get back on track academically after suffering concussions. Gooroo cares. This is personal for them. They want their students to succeed. Scott, as Director, has never let us feel anything other than that he cares. Gooroo is a first rate test prep and tutoring company, but they have the time to personalize, to care so deeply about the child. It's what you want in educating your child, that those teaching care to understand the person. Gooroo always goes that extra mile.

Will the app offer tutoring for pretty niche subjects, such as data science or quantitative finance?

Thanks for your interest, @fang_liang ! Yes we do have tutors in advanced-level subjects. In fact, Gooroo initially started as a platform matching college students with their peers for one-on-one tutoring. We've helped a lot of college students and adults succeed in class in the past 3 years. Here's a demo for an overview of the product: https://youtu.be/6Km0dBP652w.
