What started as a seed of an idea over a coffee table discussion about 16 months ago have taken the shape of a product. We discussed about the problems the elementary and middle school kids faced in Math and English and how there were so many yet so few effective websites out there to address this problem.
I am so thrilled today to share the first version of PracTutor – www.practutor.com to address some of those problems and give the power back to the parents. We spent about 16 months discussing, ideating, developing, fine tuning and making sure everything worked and finally seeing it live feels like magic.
Its like becoming a father after 16 months of anxiousness. However, like all father know, this is just the beginning. I still have to ensure my baby learns to walk, speak the first words and then run and grow. I would need every single users’ support to ensure this happens. So please call me (502-400-9374), email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), send me feedback, concerns, questions, likes, comments, tweets whatever to make PracTutor grow.
I would like to thank the entire team who made this happen.
We opened PracTutor to the world on June 2, 19.32 hours and since then we have got 5219 people registering on PracTutor which feels very good. I would like to have continuous feedback from you to ensure we make it better to suit your needs and make it the perfect solution to help you and the kids. If you think it can benefit others, please share it with your friends.
I want to ensure that your experience with PracTutor is as awesome as was ours while developing it.
