What is Transparency©?
Transparency™ is a free tool designed to transform learning. We are not a school but a platform developed to help students from Kindergarten all the way to College students achieve academic excellence. If you are a teacher or University professor, Transparency™ is designed to reduce frustration associated with teaching a child who is a little reluctant or about to run away from learning due to difficulties in comprehension.
Transparency™ provides an open door to a child struggling with whatever subject - math, science or any subject. Transparency™ is a new ally designed to reduce whatever stigma associated with slow learning.
Teachers from any school enrolled in the Transparency™ program would be able to post homework along with any specific instructions. Students would immediately have access to the homework posted by their teachers. Parents of students in the enrolled school would receive notifications and access to the same homework their children have access to. Any child who is in need of help would be able to find pre-screened and approved mentor(s) willing and ready to assist the child every step of the way.
Transparency™ makes it possible for parents and teachers to meet via video chat or video conferencing to review a child's progress, when necessary. Poor academic performance at school should not go undetected longer than the first time it occurs. Our goal is to attack whatever the problems are and to help each child as well as parents in their quest to making better academic performance a right and not a luxury.
PrimeHangout makes it easier for all the parties concerned to know enough about each other to feel comfortable. Parents would be able to monitor interactions between their children and mentors from virtually anywhere there is Internet access to ensure that whatever communication exists is socially acceptable and age appropriate.

PrimeHangout does not allow Teachers and Students to automatically become friends. If anything, friendship is strongly discouraged. It is true that students would have access to any homework posted by their teachers, however, that does not necessarily translate into friendship on PrimeHangout. Teachers would not have access to students’ page and students would not have access to Teachers’ page unless they explicitly allow each other.
