My Story

As a high school student, I tutored peers in my neighborhood, but when I looked to become an online tutor I found that existing online tutoring services were expensive and restricted to college-degree holders. Years later, when an entrepreneurship class presented an opportunity, I embarked on the journey to create an innovative and affordable tutoring company. Our vision emerged: connecting talented tutors with eager learners, and delivering high-quality education without the burden of excessive costs. Today, we stand committed to providing exceptional and affordable learning experiences, ensuring that financial constraints never hinder a student's chance to excel. Join us in transforming the tutoring landscape, one accessible session at a time.
