Company Summary

Since 2011, we've grown an innovative tutoring service and studied how students learn. Our online learning system, STREAM, is a platform to take homework and exams or review concepts and solutions. Today's education environment (K-12, test prep, college) lacks analytics and interactivity. STREAM provides teachers with performance-based analytics while offering students immediate, personalized content and the ability to connect with their peers.
