Botangle offers the most convenient way to contact a native Thai speaker for a quick lesson. There’s no easier way to get the answers you need so quickly.

Make Botangle your personal education hub and experience an all-in-one solution for everything from homework help to test preparation. Are you interested in a subject not offered in your school?

No one in the Industry does this right

Botangle is here to change an industry, to become a paradigm for what innovative educational technology can do for students around the world. You can be a part of our exciting launch and change the world of education for just $1.00. Become one of our donors like Alex Ohanian who took the opportunity to share with us his reasons for donating: “Being a part of something exceptional and new is a rare opportunity. I love the way Botangle takes an outsider approach to an old system in the hopes of contributing to humanity.”

How it works for Tutors

Tutors have the freedom to set their own rates, per hour or per minute, no matter what their location. They can choose to teach by appointment only, online/offline, or both, however they like.

No matter what institution they’re from, Botangle will work with colleges around the world to provide college credits to tutors. Botangle will record the number of hours and students using our service and report that information to whomever you choose.

Botangle will be the destination for online help

Our expert team is working on Botangle to make it a successful startup, but we need your help and resources to develop Botangle to its full potential. Hit the back this project button now!

Stretch Goals 

$50,000 - Made your education like an RPG. Chat with other classmates, posts stuff to your timeline, receive points and trophies for taking lessons. All this could happen if we reach a $50,000 in pledges.

We plan to accomplish this with the expert team we have at Botangle. I currently have 20 people working on Botangle and we hope to receive the resources from you to further development in Botangle. 

Botangle has one of the best teams in the world. Many people on our team have started a company before and have experience with startups.

But again we need your help to this startup off the ground and offer the best service in our class. So hit the back this project button to the right!

Risks and challenges

Our seasoned team members are experience in internet startups. We plan to use this experience and proven hiring strategies to our advantage, making Botangle the best that it can be.

Our largest obstacle is funding. With your help we can improve and enhance our website. Advertising dollars are crucial, so we need to meet our Kickstarter goal to bring in the best tutors from around the world to everyday people.

Your help today can help countless others for a lifetime. Make your pledge now.

FAQ

  • Nope, each tutor can choose what (s)he charges per minute. And if you take a lesson with that person for let's say an hour and the tutor charges 50 cents per minute. Than you pay the tutor $30. Botangle takes a 30% fee of that so the tutor would get $21 from that amount. We have to operate somehow! :-)
