Mentored is an innovative mobile tutoring app that embraces the dogma of one-on-one tuition by connecting students with available educators.

Once a student signs up with Mentored, they are matched up with a mentor depending on the subject matter selected and their grade level. Teacher and student can then communicate via chat, with homework assignments shared and collaboratively worked on. Teachers can make use of a virtual whiteboard to offer visual instructions, whilst audio communication facilitates smooth conversation and exchange. The app currently includes about 400 approved mentors including teachers, graduate students and volunteers, each of whom bring something unique to the table.

In addition to its stated purpose as a conventional education app, this tutor app could be of great use in the world of professional development and training, where distance learning is often desirable.
