Japhet Lim is a serial entrepreneur who has taken up multiple training roles in his journey and believes in addressing the inefficiencies in the education sector, especially when it comes to cultivating a self-directed learning approach in students.
Reubiks Academy was launched amidst the pandemic and is positioned to digitalize the learning experience. It looks to bridge the gap between tutors and students by providing an easy-to-use and intuitive interface with convenient features like geo-locations.
The launch of the app coincides with the growing gig economy, where more and more Singaporeans are looking into side-hustles and additional income source to cope with the impacts of the pandemic.
Other than freelance tutors, the app has also proven to be an excellent asset for tuition centres that are struggling to reach their target audience, as well as manage attendance and allocate resources more efficiently.
The app has also embedded additional features for tutors to conduct classes virtually.
At launch, the platform has over 100 tutors and educational service providers under its stable and is offering its service for free.
