    You might want to reword your description of BuddySchool... You make it sound completely free, when in reality people do have to pay for every lesson. It's basically just a "free service" for teachers/tutors to advertise their services, or that helps students find a teacher to hire.

    Maybe I was misinterpreting your comment, though... I'm known to do that at times. ;o) I got the feeling that it was an academic equivalent to the "open source" community, where people share their expertise with one another just for the joy of learning/teaching a subject they love. Oh well, I can dream, right?

      Thanks for heads up
      I agree it sounded a bit confusing, so I rephrased it. ;-). Although, it would be really cool to have something like that for free.
