Our mission is to provide the most effective, engaging, and fun tutoring experience possible to students everywhere. By using technology we can remove the stress and hassle of finding, vetting, scheduling, and paying tutors; attract the best tutors and pay them competitively; and continually support both families and tutors so that they can focus on learning, not logistics. We connect families with mentors and role models who will relate to, engage, and inspire their students, and ultimately provide a satisfying, enriching educational experience.
1. We believe that a tutor who can make a personal connection with a student will be more effective than even the most scholarly professional.
2. Education is not a one-way street - even a tutor teaching elementary math can learn as much from their students as they seek to give.
3. A well-rounded, engaging and dedicated tutor can be much more than a teacher, but also a mentor and role-model for the student.
4. Tutoring doesn't need to cost an exorbitant amount, and that tutors deserve to get paid the majority of the fee because they are doing the majority of the work.
5. We believe that we can use technology to provide productive and convenient service to teachers and students alike -- and reduce costs while providing the same level of service as we grow.
