Private tutoring for everyone
Didactique 2.0 is building the largest online marketplace platform for tutoring. A platform where tutors and teachers can easily offer their services to students and make money on the side of their job or study.
By making a direct connection between tutors and students we create a transparent free market and private tutoring will be more affordable and accessible for everyone.
We help teachers and tutors!
Many tutors and teachers are having a hard time finding students who need them. Tutors who work at private tutoring businesses only receive a percentage of the fee parents pay for these services. We think that's crazy and want to give the credits and money back to the teachers and tutors!
The Didactique platform enables good teachers and tutors to build their own tutoring business. Now they can make money by doing what they love most: educate!
Hey, that sounds great! But how does it work?
1. Sign up
A tutor or teacher registers on the website and creates a profile after he or she is approved by Didactique. The profile includes a short introduction, the field of expertise, the tutor's location, availability and the hourly rate set by tutor or teacher.
After the profile is completed and approved by Didactique, the tutor or teacher can be booked by students who need them! The lessons can take place online, or offline at home, a school, a public place or at a Didactique office.
3. Make money
A teacher or tutor can now run it's own business and start making money! Didactique takes care of the invoice and payment process, so the teacher or tutor can focus on what he or she does best: educate!
With our platform we can stop the unnecessary commissioning of private tutoring institutes and we give our tutors and teachers all the money they deserve, for the full 100%.
We help students and their parents!
Finding the perfect tutor or teacher is difficult and can be a struggle. He or she must be suitable, reliable, affordable and available and many things more. But where do you find him?
On the internet, a suitable tutor is hard to find especially when you quickly need one to help you by passing your exams or doing your homework.
Didactique 2.0 is the solution!
How does it work for parents and students?
1. Search and book
A student or parent uses the Didactique 2.0 website or mobile app to quickly find a tutor or teacher and book lessons.
2. The lessons
The lessons take place online or offline at home, school, public place or a Didactique office.
The student or parent rates the tutor or teacher after the last lesson, so the quality of the tutor or teacher is determined by the "the power of the crowd"!
Why is Didactique 2.0 the solution?
The Didactique 2.0 platform provides the following great solutions:
- Tutors and teachers can easily offer their services to students and build or expand their business
- Students or their parents can easily find a suitable, reliable, affordable and available tutor or teacher
- Tutoring becomes affordable to everyone because all tutors and teachers set their own hourly rate
- Student or their parents know who is a good tutor or teacher as the quality of the tutor of teacher is determined by “the power of crowd”
- Schools can quickly and easily find a teacher to fill in a temporally gap
- My brother in law can now easily find a tutor of teacher to help him with his difficult mathematics exam
- The girl next door can easily find someone who can improve her French so she can better understand her new French boyfriend
Let's bring the demand and supply for teaching and tutoring together!
What is Didactique and why 2.0?
With a team of 8 dedicated tutors we daily help students reaching their goals and giving them more confidence in learning.
Last year and due to our success we had to introduce a waiting list for students. Strange isn't it? Is it because there aren't enough available tutors or teachers? No, it's because parents don't know where to find them.
Didactique 2.0 helps parents find the right tutor or teacher and makes private tutoring accessible and affordable for everyone.
With this idea Didactique is nominated for the TedX Amsterdam Women Startup awards!
What is our businessmodel?
Why we need your support?
To bring Didactique 2.0 to life and make private tutoring and teaching more accessible for everyone!
Didactique 2.0 is not a vague concept. Last month, we presented our businessplan at the Tedx Amsterdam Women Startup awards, and we're one of the three finalists!
Now we're busy with designing and building version 1.0 of our platform. With the first 8.000 euro's we will set up an Academy where we train high school and college students how tot tutor best.!
Your voice will help us creating the largest marketplace for tutoring!

Didactique: ' If you can find the best tutors based on their own hourly rate, tutoring will be accessible and affordable for everyone"
Risks and challenges
The real risks and challenges we face don't lie in completing this project, but in the problems that we'll face without it. Good tutoring should be accessible and affordable for everyone also for parents with less money to spend.
That being said, there are a few risks to launch Didactique 2.0 that we want you to be aware of:
External threats: Although not likely, governmental policy and increased regulation on the sharing economy may threaten our business as it has done with Uber for instance. More similar scandals may stunt growth of sharing economy and decrease user trust of these types of platforms.
There will always be a chance to have unwanted people on the platform: We'll do the most we can to screen all our tutors and teachers. Also references of others will help filtering who suits you and who doesn't. We are aware of the fact that people having other ideas then just tutor of teach can try to set up a profile. We try to prevent this by asking a certificate of good conduct (Verklaring Omtrent Gedrag in Dutch) for every teacher or tutor.
Delivery: as with all Kickstarter projects, there is always a risk of delay in delivering some of the rewards, it depends on how quick our platform builders can build. We are careful to give ourselves more time than we think we'll need – but we hope we'll have some of the rewards out sooner than listed.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
