EdTech Startup ‘Lido Learning’ Plans To Hire Senior Citizens To Improve Learning For Students
To improve the delivery of online classes to students of class 5-9 on its platform, EdTech startup ‘Lido Learning’ is looking to onboard 500 senior citizens and retired professionals over the next few months.
Sharing the reason behind this, Sahil Sheth (Founder and CEO of Lido Learning) said,
“Having interacted with thousands of students, including their kids and grandkids, senior teachers are full of wisdom and patience–traits that will lead to better learning outcomes for the children in Lido’s online tutoring groups.”
The startup also said that the selected teachers would undergo a 5-day training. The training will help teachers to deepen their knowledge and prepare them to teach online.
Also, teachers can choose their slots and take up to 50 one-hour classes in a month, right from the comfort of their homes.
The company claims that amid COVID-19 pandemic it has seen an 18% organic growth each week in its user base.
