ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
TAM is an online digital ed-tech platform that connect Teachers, Linguists, Counselors and Skill Trainers with clients.
A whole lot of people need lesson teacher/tutor for themselves, their
children, parent and sometimes maids. It doesn't end at these; schools
also recruit teachers often.
a competent teacher to teach any person (s) who demands a formal
education at times is difficult to get. So therefore getting the best
teacher for the right learner is a huge problem facing some Nigerians
and Africans who demand formal education. There are qualified teachers
in different fields of education who are best to impact and impart good
knowledge into lives of individuals. But getting the right person for a
particular (compatible) learner is not so easy to find in most cases.
The ratio of students to Teachers basically in Nigeria is about 30:1.
does not give students the required knowledge expected of them. Aside
lots of people want to have basic knowledge of formal
are disapproved either because of their age or personality. Nigeria has big as
she is, has people speaking different local languages. About 500 different
local languages are being spoken in the country. This hinders many businesses
from expanding and growing in the country because they don't understand the
their interested new market and or customers. Again, there is high rate of
broken relationships and marriages in the country, which shouldn't be had it
been a right
Counselor is being consulted before, and
during the relationship. Asides education,
is as important as life in the country and world today. Lots of people now want
to acquire a skill or two, but see themselves either too old or big to learn
Olakunle seeing the problem facing the educational, skills and employment sector in Nigeria, decided to proffer a solution to the challenges with technology through his Company TeachersAroundMe.
The company is presently based in Lagos, Nigeria with a population of about 21 million people in Lagos and over 180 million in Nigeria.
With TAM, anybody, regardless of age, gender, and personality (professionals) can teach and learn any subject and language of their choice, seek and get counseled by professionals, and also train and learn whatever skill they so wish to learn at their various comfort zones by professional products around them through the TAM platform.
The unemployment rate in the country is on the high side. With skill acquisition, different people will be able to make ends meet with their skill qualification, being self-employed training others, in the process, reducing the unemployment rate.
The company has set up a site where the whole process will be taken. And so far has over 2,000 professional products (Teachers, Linguists, Counselors and Skill Trainers) in her database undergoing some screening before being listed live on the platform.
The company's Founder and CEO Arik Olakunle Raymond Awodein says TAM's core mission is
to bring education and skill acquisition to mass market grassroots in Nigeria
and Africa at large; in the process reducing unemployment by enabling
professionals earn a living with their qualifications. The outcome will
lives in positive ways
which brought about the TAM mantra TAM - redefining lives positively.
