Wise Panda

About Wise Panda

Wise Panda aims to be the number one destination for Mandarin students seeking high-quality, verified online tutors and the premier platform for Mandarin tutors to showcase their professional identity.

Wise Panda is the first direct-to-consumer product built by the team behind Trait and consists of former product and engineering leaders from top tech companies such as Facebook, Amazon, and Airbnb.

Both Wise Panda and Trait are supported by U.S. and European venture capital investors and a group of exceptional individual investors, including C-level executives from companies like Meta, and leaders from Robinhood, Instacart, and Airbnb, as well as CEOs and founders of many top publicly traded companies.

What does “verified by Trait” mean?

Trait’s verification platform is used to verify tutor credentials, qualifications, experience, and teaching quality at Wise Panda. Teaching quality is evaluated by analyzing over 20 factors, including in-lesson sentiment, engagement, and tutor-to-student feedback quality. We also assess long-term indicators such as student retention and the speed of student progression.

Trait is a verification platform with proprietary AI technology under expert oversight. It provides safe and compliant verification services to authenticate attributes beyond identity to help businesses and organisations.

Verifying the underlying attributes of a person (e.g. credentials, expertise) is more critical than verifying whether they are a real person (e.g. driver's license, passport)—in our knowledge economy, skills are the true currency.
