StudyPool is an online tutoring platform that connects students with tutors through a process called Microtutoring.[1] StudyPool is headquartered in Mountain View, California.[2]

History[edit]

StudyPool was founded in March 2014 by Richard H. S. Werbe and Jimmy Zhong.[1] At the time Werbe and Zhong, who were students at Emory University, spent several weeks hacking together the initial version of the business.[3] The company reached thousands of students within weeks of its launch.[4] Soon after, Werbe dropped out of Emory University to focus on running the venture full time, and Zhong graduated from Emory in 2015.[5][6] The California based company has publicly raised $2.3 million.[7] Investors include 500 Startups, Lerer Hippeau, Great Oaks, and Fabrice Grinda.[8][9]

Concept[edit]

According to StudyPool, its mission is to democratize learning, giving equal learning opportunities to all.[10][11] Using marketplace functionality, StudyPool connects students and tutors via SMS on a per question basis.[12][13][better source needed][14][15]
