After a long and tiring day at work, you come home and realize that you promised your children to help them with their homework. Instead of a cozy movie night with the family, this evening will be spent on mathematics and Dutch grammar. Does this storyline sound familiar to you? If so, then you might want to consider booking a personal tutor for your child at Nimbles. After winning the TedX Amsterdam Women Startup Award last year, the Dutch startup has now raised €400.000 through anonymous investors to develop its online tutoring platform. Nimbles is currently operating in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague and the company will use the funds to expand throughout the Netherlands.
A tutoring platform again? Yes, and here’s why:
When we search Google for homework tutors, we get over 2 million results. Do we really need another tutoring platform? Danique Wiltink, co-founder of Nimbles together with Adine Tjeenk Willink, explains why: “What is unique about our platform, is that parents can choose the tutor. We do not match them with a tutor, but they can search in our database, by filtering on different aspects, such as the experience level of the tutor, his expertise, but also on the experience he has with learning disabilities. In addition, parents can filter on price, as the tutors determine their own rates.”
