In the ambient of amazing and trendy technology  apps and gadgets, education startups are easily dismissed. Oddly enough, it is one of the fields with potential to really make significant impact.
The guys at Tutomundo come forth with a very interesting model that brings together face to face personalized interaction, virtual world efficiency, and a very strong human conection and social factor that make this idea a winner.
They have designed a market place for tutoring services where quality service ranking dictates the actual price of the service, though their average runs on roughly $13 an hour. in adition to this, they are proposing a tutoring service donation program for comunities in developing countries that really sets their company appart as a potential problem-solver for the education problem in both developed and under developed markets.
Being at an early stage, they are seeking investment to give traction to their company, so its definitely a great moment for visionary investors to join in.
