I want to start small. How can I do this?
Start by tutoring a small group of students or your relatives. Aim to outdo the competition until people notice and slowly build a following. Get referrals via word of mouth. And build from there.

You could promote to schools, tuition agencies or advertise on the internet. The good thing about online learning is that there are no geographical boundaries nor restrictive franchise contracts to tie you down. Indeed, you control your destiny!
Do you offer a money back guarantee?
Unfortunately, there is no free lunch when starting a business. Do your research beforehand. Ask yourself this question 'what's the worst it can happen?'

You need a valid Working With Children (WCC) card since you'll be working with children. That's the minimum. Again, it depends on your business plan. We can advise you on that.
I own a math franchise. can i still join as a koobits reseller?
We would advise that you seek legal advice if you belong to a franchise. Take a look at your franchise agreement.

The fee is renewable on an annual basis. You have a choice to continue or stop after one year. Unlike franchises, you do not incur any penalty if you quit within a year. Bear in mind, though, monies paid will not be refunded.
What are the technical requirements needed for koobits?
Reliable internet connection is needed. Any desktop browser would suffice. You could use your phone, but there is no app yet, and the website would not be mobile responsive, but it will still work.

Absolutely. You can combine offline and online elements. There are printable math worksheets within Koobits itself. It is your one stop math tutor.
Why is Koobits superior to other math portals in Australia such as mathletics?

Analytical data is used to pinpoint students' learning. Last but not least, it is the only Singapore math portal that is used by the majority of Singapore students.

Many parents grew up in an earlier era. Online learning is here to stay. Universities everywhere are big on online learning nowadays. NAPLAN online, STEM, ICAS are the buzzwords nowadays. Kids nowadays are digital natives.
Why don't I pay to join an established franchise such as Kumon or kip mcgrath?
Most established franchises still operate the 'traditional' way. What worked for them in the past may not work in the future. We are living in the age of disruption and education is not spared.
