BOCA RATON, Fla., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Tutors (www.owltutors.com) has retained TransMedia Group (www.transmediagroup.com) to assist with the promotion of its cutting-edge online platform that allows tutors to keep 100% of their tutoring revenue without middleman fees, which in turn will make it a wiser and more cost effective program for parents and students.
Under the Owl Tutors program, each tutor must undergo a thorough background check, ensuring zero criminal history, and a personal web interview to confirm that they are both safe and qualified.
"Owl Tutors implements a superior industry business model with an equitable first-of-its-kind approach of a flat-rate tutor membership for student referrals and business tools," says Neil Parsont, CEO and Founder of Owl Tutors. "Differing from other third party tutoring companies who can take up to 60% of a tutor's earnings, Owl Tutors allows tutors and parents to transact at a more agreeable rate by removing middleman fees."
Tutor membership includes marketing, video training, access to a scheduling system with automatic reminders, student management system, payment processing and a mobile app. Providing students with a free platform to search for and evaluate tutors with whom they can communicate and pay directly simplifies the process of connecting students with tutors, while addressing the needs of both.
Looking to expand Owl Tutors' public image and reputation, TransMedia Group will work on a campaign geared towards parents seeking trustworthy and effective tutors for their children, and tutors seeking full compensation for their work. TransMedia's assignment will involve conducting media outreach for increasing awareness amongst the K-12 demographics in South Florida.
As Owl Tutors' public relations agency, TransMedia Group will leverage past experience gained from working in the education industry to support the company's needs and expectations.
"I feel my capacity to learn was truly enhanced by having a tutor when I was younger," said Abby Blake, Manager of Public Relations at TransMedia Group. "We all have great faith in this growing company and its honest mission to mutually help parents, students and tutors."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
