Chegg Tutors is an on-demand tutor matching service. In 2015, a product leader found that a “Start a lesson now” feature — only used by 2% of users — resulted significantly higher lesson rates and returning users. We redesigned the core user experience around this insight.

Before the redesign

Finding a tutor required searching a list of tutors, reviewing profiles, messaging potential tutors, and awaiting responses.
