Intellecquity’s aim is to provide a platform that connects students with tutors who can help them with their math needs, all in a cost-effective manner, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The platform is now available to download on both the iOS App and Google Play Store.
Intellecquity assists students by allowing them to post questions they are having trouble with and receive a detailed, step-by-step solution from highly qualified tutors.
Intellecquity is simple and as easy to use as Snapchat or Instagram, highlights Co-Founder Maharishi Dasgupta.
Simply take a picture and wait for one of the Intellecquity tutors to provide you with a response to your question with full working notes, so that you can learn the process yourself.
Seeing their younger siblings struggle with the HSC (Higher School Certificate) was the catalyst for the founders to create Intellecquity.
“Not understanding some questions, not being able to afford or access tutors and lastly not having the time to ask their teacher that tricky question before an exam the next morning were all pains that resulted in increased stress on our sibling,” Intellecquity Co-Founder Mitch Foster said.
“We quickly discovered that students aged between 16 to 18 faced the same issues and these issues weren’t something that should be stressed upon so heavily by a minor.”
The team at Intellecquity realised there was something that needed to be done to make sure that other students didn’t face these same concerns in the future. Through initial research and customer development interviews, it became clear to Intellecquity that students were aware of a variety of solutions to help them with their needs such as Wolfram Alpha & Mathway.com.
However, the company found that the majority of students shared similar pains such as: being able to get the answer in the textbook but not knowing how to work it out; struggling with generic formulas without explanations; and delayed help from teachers and tutors after an exam.
Co-Founder Waqar Mirza said he found that students were looking for a solution which helps them understand a question with step-by-step working and explanations whilst being cost-effective and quick.
Intellecquity is receiving accolade from students who are receiving the support they need through the app.
“It’s not your typical tutor style coaching or your tedious Saturday morning classes, but instead, a 24/7 service where you can ask professional tutors questions that you cannot solve,” user Jayden said.
“I always found when doing maths exercises, was that I’d run into a question that I couldn’t do. I realised that I hated leaving it incomplete, and having to ‘get back to it’ the following day, or the following weekend when I saw my one-on-one math tutor or school teacher.”
“I wanted a real person I could ask immediately, who could explain what the problem was and how to solve it in logical and easy to follow steps. I found that Intellecquity was the only solution out there. It’s a great app, great tutors, recommend it to all.”
Intellecquity’s vision is to ensure that all students, regardless of location, socioeconomic background, availability of time or limited access to quality education are helped.
The company’s vision is to ensure that all students are given the help they need, when they need it, at a price point that provides value.
