About

Profes was founded in 2012 by undergrad strudents straight from the computer science university. It started as a marketplace for finding tutors. Soon there was a perception that there were opportunities around the learning process, such as having online classes in a whiteboard, using a organised calendar and reading academic articles. So Profes developed to be a KaaS (Knowledge as a service) platform, with several pedagogic objects to anyone who needs to learning anything at anytime. Profes has more than 35k tutors online and more than 350k monthly visitors.
