TeachStreet v2.0? Amazon to launch Local Services Marketplace

Could this eventually lead to 1-click tutoring services? Given that Amazon acqui-hired TeachStreet back in February 2012 and folded it into the AmazonLocal team this seems likely.

Local marketplaces in the education space have seen growing interest from users and investors alike with WyzAnt being the most prominent one in the US right now. Launched in 2005 the founders Andrew Geant and Mike Weishuhn grew the company to over $20 million in annual revenue before raising a $21.5 million Series A in December 2013 and acquiring the assets of Tutorspree, another tutoring marketplace in January 2014.
