South America Tour Update

We've now spent a little over 4 months traveling north through Peru, Ecuador and Columbia. Along the way we've had a chance to drop in to maybe 50 different Spanish schools and talk about our plans for FairTutor.

Overall, we've been pleasantly surprised at how enthusiastic everybody seems to be about the site. Typical responses range from "Sounds interesting. Let me know when you go live." To "I need this today. Where do I put the link on my website!" Granted, we do get the occasional concern that perhaps Peruvian internet connections (and computers) aren't quite up to the task yet, and there are a few schools who prefer to do things the old fashioned way, face to face. But in general, the response has been a lot more positive than we had expected.

We've received some great feedback and ideas that never would have occurred to us had we built this site without actually talking to a bunch of real schools. One important idea that came out of these meetings is the "Online Spanish School in a Box" concept that will allow established schools to add a mini version of the FairTutor website directly into their own site.

We're still on track to launch the site to paying students on June 1st, so if you're among the many schools and independent teachers who are helping us test the site, you might want to start polishing up your profile pages for the day when we'll open the doors to the public.
