Amazon Now Delivers Tutoring Services to Your Home

WHAT CAN'T AMAZON DELIVER? The company that started with goods and groceries will now be delivering live tutoring, thanks to a partnership with San Diego, CA-based TakeLessons, a marketplace for local and online lessons. It's part of Amazon's new Home Services, which offers customers in most US urban areas a variety of services, from plumbing to car stereo installation. (TakeLessons raised $7 million in a Series C round in 2014 and $18 million total since its launch in 2006.) Haven't you always wanted to learn some French while you hire goats to graze your pasture?
