Market, Competition, and Strategic Advantage
Currently, home tutorial is an unorganized sector, however, there is a lot of scope in the home tuitions industry. As per the NASSO Survey, reported by Livemint.com, “One out of every four students in India takes private tuition and in a couple of states more than three out of every four students, or over 75%, opt for it, according to a report by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO). Taking private coaching classes individually or in a group, at home or at any other place, by a single or more tutors for different reasons has become a norm, the survey underlined. More students opting for private tuition reflects poorly on the quality of education in schools and colleges.”
“In this survey…it is noted that in states like Tripura (around 81%) and West Bengal (around 78%) majority of students were taking private coaching (combining school education and higher education), whereas at all-India level 1/4th of students were taking private coaching,” the NSSO survey said.
Seeing the vast opportunity, the company is positive about its strategies that it will put all efforts to organize the sector very soon. Excellence, quality education and better teacher-student relationship is their strategy.
