NextGuru.com started in Southern California in 2010 as a free online platform to connect students with private tutors, music teachers and coaches.  In April 2011, the company launched a redesigned website and expanded services across California. In June, expansion continued to Washington, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada and Texas. The website empowers parents and students to search, review and choose a private instructor in a privacy-protected environment.  NextGuru.com, with over 4000 registered tutor members, currently operates in the state of California.
