Find My Tutor Mobile Android Application Project
Project Domain / Category
Mobile Application (Android)
Abstract / Introduction
Often, it can be very tricky to know where to look and find a Tutor if you don’t have any connections. Usually, when a student wants to search for a tutor, he/she has to search through newspaper advertisements or asks any friend or relative who can recommend a highly qualified and expert tutor with affordable fees.
This project aims at developing an android based mobile application with the aim of making it easier for parents and students to instantly find and connect with thousands of professional and certified tutors in one place. This application will provide students a platform on their smartphones for finding the experts and tutors of their desired field/subject according to their qualifications and experience.
The proposed mobile application will provide an efficient search engine that will help students to search using different filters (subject, location, qualification, etc.).
Based on the applied filters, the search engine will find the most relevant data and will display it to the user. Search by Location feature will also be integrated into the application so that the users can search for the tutors in their surrounding locations as well as the tutor can know from where the services are being requested.
Finally, the application will allow the users to rate and give their reviews about any tutor and the services they provide which will make this application more useful for the users.
There will be two users of the Application.
The following will be the functional requirements of this project.
- The system will be integrated into a Real-time database i.e. Firebase.
- It should be able to send and receive Real-time Push notifications from students to tutors and vice versa.
