About SkimaTalk


Helping People Go Global

Our mission is to help people go global, creating learning and teaching opportunities for everyone in the world. For anyone who strongly desires to learn or teach, we make it easy, convenient, and affordable to share skills and knowledge without regard to differences in language, culture, and nationality.


Sharing the World's Knowledge

Our vision is to create a global skill-sharing marketplace. Every single person has a unique set of skills, knowledge, and experiences that someone else in the world will value. This abundance of talent and potential is currently untapped and limited to the general public. By connecting individuals worldwide, we enable people to access the world's knowledge.


A Marketplace for English Learners and Teachers

We help English learners find the best teachers from all over the world and offer a platform where anyone can start one-on-one online English classes. Currently, we focus exclusively on English learning, but plan to expand to other skills in the near future.
