Ideation to Reality Of The Urban Tutor
Urban Tutor's foundation was laid in 2016with 1 student of the NIOS board but the full-fledged functioning started in the year 2018 back in Ahmedabad.
The founders of Urban Tutor Saumil Fidelis and Alisha Zaveri Fidelis being professional Social Workers were keenly inclined towards providing quality education to children. They visioned to provide an opportunity to children and individuals who couldn't complete their education but are willing to learn and grow.
Although the NIOS system enables the facility for individuals to complete their schooling yet there is a lack of awareness. The lack of information about the NIOS still holds back so many people from completing their education. While understanding more of NIOS in-depth they understood that NIOS is not only for children who don't have resources but also for students inclined towards extracurricular activities like sports, students preparing for competitive exams like JEE, and differently-abled students
The Urban Tutor with the same motive started working towards educating students about how to complete their schooling through NIOS. It assists the student in their holistic development, inculcating soft skills and providing them an end-to-end solution from selecting their subjects, its admission procedure, tutoring, and helping them find the best college after NIOS
According to the founders, India within the coming 10 years will have the world's largest youth population ready for Jobs and thus it becomes a necessity to educate the children of today. The children of today are the future of tomorrow and hence education is the key that can help us resolve the social challenges of the country.
