After completing his degree in risk management, Timothy decided a career in finance wasn’t for him. Instead, he was fascinated by the satisfaction of enlightening students as a tutor. He believes that curiosity is the key to knowledge, and questioning is the best way to learn; ‘it begins with a question’ became Timothy’s motto.
Questioning the efficiency and effectiveness of brick-and-mortar tutoring centres, he began working on an alternative platform to bridge the strong demand for after-class education support with talented but busy university students. Leveraging the convenience of mobile technology, he founded Snapask in 2015. Students can now snap a picture of the question at hand and receive assistance from locally-sourced tutors within 10 seconds. Snapask has garnered strong support from high school students, and is now serving over 3 million students across Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
