San Francisco startup builds a platform for teachers and learners to connect over live, one-to-one video

Savvy offers simple scheduling, high quality person-to-person video sessions, and streamlined payment.

With Savvy, we’re empowering more learners with the opportunity to gain new skills by giving them access to teachers from all over the world, and connecting them over live video.

Savvy, the leading platform for live, one-to-one learning, is now available to learners and teachers globally. Learners can browse available teachers, book appointments, and join a live video chat session. Currently, Savvy features teachers in a dozen categories including Music, Business & Career, Life Coaching, Academics, and Beauty & Style.

Savvy was designed to give more people the opportunity to benefit from the transformational impact of one-on-one coaching, which is often the most effective way to learn anything. It connects potential learners to the right teacher so that they can meet their individual learning goals. People often want to learn in ways that they can apply directly to their own lives. Savvy's individualized learning lets people learn in ways they can actually use.

“The demand for learning is greater than it's ever been, but finding the right teachers for specific needs continues to be a hurdle," said Thomas Arend, PhD., CEO and co-founder at Savvy. "With Savvy, we’re empowering more learners with the opportunity to gain new skills by giving them access to teachers from all over the world, and connecting them over live video."

The smart education market is expected to reach $447 billion by 2020, and the demand for one-to-one learning is growing rapidly from $60 billion in 2013 to an expected $106 billion in 2018. Most one-on-one learning occurs in person, which limits teachers and learners by geographic location. Savvy gives more people the ability to learn from anyone one-on-one, and provides a channel for emerging learning categories such as transgender voice training, managing your career as a dancer, somatic body movement or becoming a private investigator—areas in which there limited or no existing teaching resources.

"Today, there isn’t enough of the right education to go around,” said Hamish Chandra, co-founder at Savvy. “Traditional schools can’t keep up with demand, and often don’t teach folks the right knowledge at the right time. The biggest advantage with Savvy that learners can tap into a wide variety of experts from the convenience of their home. We make it seamless for teachers to share expertise and life experience that can be useful and meaningful to others."

With Savvy, teachers can create their online profile and storefront in minutes, manage scheduling with students, process payments automatically, and access high quality video chat in a single, easy-to-use interface. Teachers can sign up for Savvy here.
