Tutyr: Mobile Application

Tutyr is an application developed to help students easily and instantly, find and connect with local tutors

Overview

With Tutyr, you can quickly and easily find a tutor instantly rather than having to schedule an appointment. Select your subject and Tutyr will connect you with an experienced college student, and give you directions to their location on campus.

Background Research

An online survey was distributed through various CMU Facebook groups and other social networks. This served as informal market research - a way of assessing general receptiveness at a larger scale than interviews. Almost 50% of students indicated that this application would be useful, and that they would be interested in being able to meet up with tutors in person.

Storyboarding and Prototypes

After determing the overall idea of the app and the way it would function, our group created wireframes using a tool called Justinmind and I concurrently ran user studies with the interactive prototypes. We received useful feedback, such as the ability to see a timer during a tutoring session. We then created hi-fidelity prototypes that included a visual identity.
