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.

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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
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! :-)
