How many times have you done this? Get stuck on a homework problem, then click around endlessly on YouTube or Khan? Every time, you get back 100s of generic videos that they made for super math and science geeks because the explanations feels like they’re assuming you already know stuff.
You don’t need “general knowledge” on this problem. YOU ALREADY HAVE THAT IN YOUR TEXTBOOK!!! AARRGGHH! You need someone to help you on this SPECIFIC problem. But there’s nobody around to help you get unstuck.
Your other option is to pay through the nose for a tutor. IF you can find one exactly at the time you get stuck on homework or test prep.
You've got no time or patience for these hassles. You hate long-form video lectures. And you don’t want to schedule stuff in advance, because you need help NOW. And there’s no way you can pay 50 bucks to a tutor to get help on a couple of problems.
We have a plan. And it doesn’t include crossing your fingers, praying, or telling yourself that you need to "just work harder”. Here's how we think about it:
We think you should be able to get live help any time you get stuck.
We think learning in bite-sized chunks works a lot better than sitting through long videos.
We think you should have a dedicated personal coach always on your side to keep your academics on track.
And we don’t think you should have to pay an arm and leg for it.
This is the way it should be. So we built exactly that!
That's it. That's the pitch.
When you sign up to Kapeesh, you immediately unlock a suite of experiences crafted to help you reach your academic goals. Live tutoring that follows exactly what you’re learning in class, your personal academic coach who crafts custom study plans and keeps you on track, an army of tutors standing by to help whenever you get stuck on a problem, frequent online office hours where you can pop in to get clear on stuff you didn’t get in class, a private community of experts to answer any questions, and a ton of other learning tools.
Oh, and direct access to our founding team. We’ll give you our emails and we’ll jump on video calls with you if you run into problems with the service. We believe that every successful business is built on the success of its customers, and there is nothing a founder has to do that’s more important than spending time helping a customer be successful. And if we don’t, we ask that you hold us accountable.
We built Kapeesh because we believe that education, especially for math and science, is broken. It needs radical re-thinking. But we collectively can’t fix any of it unless we take a stand on some core values we believe in. And reject some long-held, but flawed, premises.
