About Mighty Scholar

We created Mighty Scholar with one vision but for two reasons: to increase access to top quality education for students and create new work opportunities for great teachers. And we do that by using technology and innovation to deliver a best-in-class learning platform, powered by best-in-class teachers who get paid what they deserve. 
That’s because our mission is to create opportunity for kids and teachers to get ahead and thrive, just the way it should be. And we’re powered by tutors, partners, advisors and investors who share our mission of helping people get ahead, because that’s the charge we share together.
