Founder story

Hi, I'm Omar Andani, and I know firsthand how transformative the right educational support can be. There was a time when I was the poster child for academic struggles—plagued by poor grades, failed exams, and frequent absences from class.

While my friends had ambitious dreams of entering fields like medicine, law, or engineering, I was directionless after high school. I drifted between various schools, not fully appreciating the value of education, until I finally withdrew altogether.

Years later, a spark ignited within me—a desire to go back and earn a degree. Excited but anxious, I sat in my first math class, and instantly, that familiar sense of overwhelm washed over me. I wondered if I'd made a massive mistake. The school offered tutoring services, but it was a one-size-fits-all solution—five students clamoring for the attention of one tutor. It was far from the personalized guidance I craved.

Determined to change my trajectory, I began asking friends and family for tutor recommendations. After a few hit-or-miss experiences, I found a tutor who did more than just transfer knowledge; he made me passionate about learning. That connection was a game-changer for me. It propelled me not only to complete my bachelor's degree but also go on to earn a Master's of Management in Artificial Intelligence and an MBA.

Now, I've set out on a mission to pay it forward. My goal is to help you find the tutoring support you need to unlock your potential and realize what you can achieve. Because sometimes, all it takes to turn your academic life around is connecting with the right tutor.
