Who are we?

Two guys, a gal, a pineapple and a dream.

In only the most positive sense.

We're here to disrupt tutoring.

There's not much more to it.

Why the pineapple, you ask? Why not the pineapple, we respond.

Our story

We’re two guys and a gal who got an epic education and we want the same opportunity for others. 

Our dream is to develop a platform that provides an accessible, high-quality educational tool for all schools, teachers, parents, tutors, students, learners and anyone else with the burning desire to learn or teach.

We have the means. We’ve been nudged. Times are changing and we must move with them.

Bring on digital. Bring on free tutoring.

Our vision.

To become the South African learner's ultimate, epic studying companion, oozing relatability, reliability and dependability with a little attitude.

Our mission.

To help Nick and Nicole, we're gonna build an epic, accessible and ever-improving EdTech platform, motivating a growing community of like-minded learners passionate about the pineapple.

Our values.

Everyone's welcome.

Even if you don't like pineapple on pizza (weird?), we're here to help.

Near zero catch.

We're gonna give and give and give and give... Sometimes we'll ask.

Slick and smooth tutoring.

Not only in looks and style - our tutors are epic communicators.

Sharing is caring.

We're gonna help you, then you're gonna help them... Shared value FTW.

There are two pretty awesome guys doing the tutoring disruption.

Meet them. Learn with them. Connect with them.
