First Live Tutoring Mobile Application Deployed On Android; Mobile Application Allows Live, One-On-One Tutoring in Classroom Environment

MANHATTAN, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TutaPoint.com, one of the nation's leading online tutoring providers, has released the first live tutoring application for the Android Market. The application, "Live USA Tutoring," is the first application for Android that allows students using a smartphone or tablet to directly connect, communicate and collaborate with a live tutor.

"After nine months of research, development, and testing, we could not be more proud of the final application," said company co-founder Ryan Duques.

Students who use the new application will find the mobile virtual classroom environment similar to TutaPoint.com's web-based environment. With the app's robust chat and whiteboard system, students and tutors can work out a problem or lesson clearly and effectively. The application was built with lightweight architecture that employs Adobe Corporation's AIR technology.

Mobile tutoring sessions can be scheduled either on a computer or on an Android device, such as a phone or tablet.

"This application further breaks down the barriers to a student receiving educational support," said Duques. "Now a student can receive help from a qualified, U.S.-based tutor no matter what time it is, or where they are."

The application can be viewed on the Android Market: https://market.android.com/details?id=air.tutapointAndroid&feature=search_result
