GoGuardian Acquires TutorMe To Offer Online Tutoring To Students Across US

GoGuardian, the leading education technology company helping create more effective and safer learning environments, has recently announced the acquisition of TutorMe, an online tutoring solution creating access and opportunity for all students.

According to a press statement, with the addition of TutorMe to GoGuardian’s family of education solutions, nearly 25 million public K-12 students-- one in two--now benefit from GoGuardian technology as part of their learning journey.

Amid a recent marked demand for tutoring services in K-12 education, TutorMe has grown its customer base and team three-fold in the past two years. Combined with GoGuardian’s solutions for classroom management, engagement, and student safety, TutorMe extends GoGuardian’s mission to accelerate positive learning outcomes for all students.

Founded in 2014, GoGuardian is on a mission to supercharge human potential by creating the ultimate learning platform. The platform helps thousands of K-12 schools and districts maximize the learning potential of every student by enabling more productive, effective, and safer digital learning. The company believes that education is the highest point of leverage for improving society and that digital learning can meaningfully advance educational outcomes for every student, school, and district.

Commenting on the acquisition, Chief Executive Officer of GoGuardian, Advait Shinde, said:

"The demand for supplemental academic support has never been greater, and schools need every tool at their disposal to support students and teachers. GoGuardian and TutorMe share a commitment to changing the education landscape so that learning is more convenient, effective, and equitable for all students. We’re excited to join our teams in order to better support the students, schools, and districts we serve."

Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, TutorMe offers individualized services, 24/7, to more than 1.5 million students in over 300 subjects. The on-demand platform mirrors a one-on-one, in-person tutoring session with live video and voice functionality. It makes personalized learning support easy and affordable so that all students, no matter their resources, background, or location have equitable access to high-quality tutoring.

Co-founder & CEO of TutorMe, Myles Hunter, added:

"GoGuardian is a natural pairing for TutorMe because of our common goal to support positive learning outcomes for all students. TutorMe saw a 600% surge in demand during the pandemic, and students continue to experience the effects of pandemic-related learning challenges. Joining forces with GoGuardian presents a unique opportunity to reach students with personal academic support when and where they need it."

With the back-to-school season on the horizon and a critical year ahead for educators to help students close pandemic-related learning gaps, TutorMe and GoGuardian also announced an offer for 50% off the first year of a TutorMe Equity Plan for the first 50 K-12 school-district partners that sign an Order Form for the TutorMe Equity Plan during the period beginning on June 27 and ending Aug. 30, 2022. The aim of this offer is to make high-quality, on-demand tutoring even more accessible to K - 12 districts that provide TutorMe as a free service to their students. District leaders interested in the offer can find out the complete details of this offer, including eligibility requirements and exclusions.

Last year in June, GoGuardian had acquired Edulastic, the next-generation online assessment platform that allows K-12 teachers and administrators to track students’ progress toward college and career readiness standards.
