Cambly is an online platform founded in 2012 that provides on-demand access to tutors via video chat. Cambly tutors are native speakers from the United States, Canada, UK and Australia, etc. The platform allows users to connect with the suitable tutor in under 5 seconds. Users can then practise English conversation, take an English course, or prepare for the IELTS or TOEFL exams.
Every class on Cambly is recorded, and video recordings are available on-demand for the respective users. Cambly provides in-chat translations that allow users to type in their native language in case they get stuck in conversation. Users can book classes according to their schedule with the specific tutors as well. After 10 hours of private English classes on Cambly, every student also gets their own certificate. Cambly provides plans depending on the user's weekly agenda.
Cambly participated in the YC W14 cohort of Y Combinator and raised an estimated $2,204,365.
