NEW YORK, Sept. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DoesThatMakeSense.com(DTMS), the first online education company to offer customized, around the clock tutoring, is pleased to announce the completion of its Beta testing phase.
"In order to grow into a healthy brand we found that the most effective way was to do it organically with an invite-only beta testing period," says founder and CEO Jonathan Kestenbaum. "Now that we're ready, I can't wait for everyone to see what we've created. We are going to revolutionize the tutoring industry."
DoesThatMakeSense.com is completely unique, as tutors create custom study materials for students based on their learning style of choice. DTMS's tutors are entirely U.S.-based, and range from Harvard psychology professors to award-winning authors. They are accessible to students 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
It's a simple concept, yet it's never been done before. Students submit a request for help (no registration required), upload all associated materials, and are then prompted to answer five simple questions. Next, the site's "nerds" bid on the help request in real time – it is like eBay, but for tutoring. Students select a nerd, and the nerd gets to work immediately. DTMS tutors are equipped to provide custom book notes, study guides, note cards, writing consultation and more. Requests can be submitted online, via email, fax, through a mobile device, or even through the DTMS Facebook application.
