This study aimed to develop a mobile app that would cater the needs of parents or guardians in finding reliable tutor for their child’s in need of tutoring services. The study focused on developing a mobile app entitled “Grab a Tutor: A Decision Support Mobile App for Student Tutoring.” All features stated on the user story board, use case diagrams and data flow diagrams were provided on the developed mobile app. The Grab a Tutor: A Decision Support Mobile App which was developed from August 1, 2018 up to December 2018 conforms to ISO/IEC 25010 Product Quality Standards and ISO/IEC 25010 Quality in Use Standards. The study was conducted using a developmental type of research. Data were gathered through informal and formal interviews, observations, internet searches, and survey questionnaires. The mobile app was developed using the phases of the Agile Approach Development which includes requirements analysis phase, planning phase, design phase, develop phase, release phase and track and monitor phase. Source code and design were constructed using Ionic framework and XAMPP. The implementation of the various technology used in the mobile app made it easier to meet all the aims that the researcher conceptualized. In order to assess the consistency and reliability of the mobile app, the researcher also used ISO/IEC 25010 as the standard testing tools. As a research standard, it was successful because it meant that the framework produced met the respondents' level of standards. Since it has been standardized, ISO / IEC 25010 describe a well-known consistency attribute and serves as the basis for many approaches to quality control. An error-free application and software reliability would be ensured.
