We are a team of enthusiastic teachers, designers and programmers who are passionate about bringing the benefits of 1-on-1 education to young learners in China.
We started in Cambridge, England in 2013, and were inspired by the work of educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom. In his 1984 paper 'The Two Sigmas Problem' Benjamin described an experiment where a teacher delivered classroom instructions and private tuition to two groups of students at the same academic level. Students receiving private tuition performed above 98% of those taught in the classroom. In nerdy math terms, they performed two ‘sigmas’ higher. We believe that every child is capable of achieving ‘two sigma’ results.
We’ve created our Open whiteboard. An online teaching platform that’s specially designed to make online lessons more convenient and rewarding for both teachers and students. Over the last few years it’s helped us to bring the twosigmas effect to thousands of young learners.
