Executive Summary

Course Stars, LLC is a quality tutoring service focused on helping high school college students excel in specific college courses, or standardized tests, through the help of experienced tutors (who have taken those specialized courses before). The unique aspect of Course Stars is that our tutors are all specialized in their own college courses and have their strengths in specific standardized testing aspects. The focus of our business project for Course Stars is to create a method for analyzing and matching a specific student in need of tutoring with their respective tutor. This matchmaking will be based on the student’s strengths and weaknesses, along with the tutor’s teaching style and the student’s learning style. Solely focusing on the SAT this semester, we have designed intuitive tests along with an accurate scoring system(developed by trial and error of known SAT scored students). This business project will help with marketing for Course Stars, as we plan to post these tests as a quick measure to instantly get an accurate prediction on what the respective student will receive on the SAT initially, and after matching with a specialized tutor. A quick test can be a lucrative offer on the website to help draw in potential customers. The matchmaking system will also quicken the process of finding the correct tutor while eliminating the possibility that the student leaves the company due to an incorrectly matched tutor. Our business project will serve as a marketing tool and help save Course Stars’ management an extra step.
