This project is about a website for students to search & offer private tuitions. Students are the only user of this service.
about the website:
My knowledge about website programming and hosting is limited. Since we will need a database for this whole website, I guess that the site needs to be programmed in PHP and MySQL, but feel free to suggest other alternatives. By now, there are no server hosted. I have never done this before and I would like to have your expertise on this.
For now, the site will be built up for one city with two universities. Each university has different fields of study and every field of study contains different courses, which will be collected by me. In (almost) every course older students will offer their service/material to younger students. The payment should be managed by our site. Every student, who is registered need to have his own profile, especially the ones who offer their service.
Our target market are young people around in their twenties, so the website should look modern & cool. It doesn't have to be as fancy as spotify.com, but it should have a really nice design.
Details can be talked over in private chat.
about the project:
this project is set up as a lean start-up. Please skip, if you don't know what this exactly means.
We will have several milestones to cover.
The first is to create a good landing page with a chance of registration, so we can see if there's enough demand for this kind of service.
The second is to build a first working website with the main functionalities (profiles, posting service offer, mailing between both after payment, ...)
the following milestones will be some features like an automated payment solution likely how you see it on freelancer.com or airbnb.com, maybe a chat and so on…
If you want to work on this project you should be risk-seeking. The first milestones won't be very lucrative. If this project turns out to be a success you will get your deserved reward (bonuses or maybe a percentage of the profit, depending on your work effort). So this is more of a longterm arrangement. All in all, the expenses for the whole site are maximum $500, including all features. We will test each feature before you are building it, so you don't have to waste any time (for example by using featurekicker.com). Moreover, be a teampleayer! Your personal opinion will have a huge impact on the decision making. If your profile and the chemistry fits quite well, you have a chance of being a co-founder.
You should also be very communicative! Meaning that you always have a smartphone on your side and are willing to answer mails within 12 hours.
Make sure I can see your portfolio (websites you created, logos you designed and so on)
