Schoolhouse.world is a platform that connects people around the world to have free, small-group tutoring sessions. We currently offer tutoring in high school math and SAT prep, and aim to expand across more ages and topics soon.
In the midst of COVID-19, the opportunity to access personalized help and dig deep into problems has been the central struggle faced by teachers, parents and students during at-home schooling. This sense of urgency prompted Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, to find a solution by partnering with his college friend, Shishir Mehrotra, cofounder and CEO of Coda. Together, with a handful of volunteers, they created schoolhouse.world.
After running a closed pilot within Long Beach Unified District over the spring, schoolhouse.world first opened its virtual doors to tutors and students from the public in June 2020. People from all over the world volunteered to tutor sessions; high school students, teachers, professionals, and PhDs alike. Since then, our team has run over 1,100 tutoring sessions with students from more than 40 countries, while working to develop scalable systems to monitor sessions and train new tutors.
We are now leveraging what we’ve learned to launch a new, custom web platform in early 2021. Be sure to
