Our mission at XLearn is to offer a virtual program that caters to high school students across New England. As a community rising out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeking to provide flexible learning options for all types of passionate learners with the belief that enrichment is best done together.
Our service provides diverse learning options and specifically for individuals who need flexibility, yet still prioritize receiving a high-level education. With help from trained tutors, our students have the opportunity to learn at a pace that works best for them and delve deeply into a wide variety of subjects.
How Did it Begin?
We are a group of high school students from Massachusetts. We formed our group and met through the TiE Young Entrepreneurs program. Helping other people is something we’ve always been interested in doing, and with the pandemic, we saw a pressing need for supporting remote education protocols. Taking the initative, we identified a way of helping these students out, offering them peer to peer tutoring with volunteer hours as an incentive for the tutors. This idea quickly evolved into our company, XLearn. Months later, our idea blossomed into a rapidly expanding initiative and won the TYE Boston Pitch Competition.
Where Are We Now?
Winning this competition gave us a big boost, kickstarting our company and helping us move towards a product launch to help reach more students with low-income families. Through this experience, we’ve learned time and time again the importance of community growth. Watching our students succeed in school by using our platform motivates us to consistently improve our product and make their experience as smooth as possible. All to fulfill our mission to have students join us in our journey to learn better together.
