REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 26, 2016 – In an effort to help students master their classes and to bolster an atmosphere where learning expands beyond the classroom walls, Course Hero, the leading educational technology platform for course-specific study resources and tutoring, has committed to giving away $1,000,000 worth of one-on-one tutoring. As many as 10,000 students will each win $100 in tutor credits (totaling $1 million) giving them on-demand, 24/7 access to thousands of curriculum experts on the Course Hero platform.

“How many times have students started their homework only to realize they don’t understand a key point?” said Course Hero CEO and Co-Founder Andrew Grauer. “Class time is exceptionally valuable, but students spend a lot of their time learning outside of the classroom as well. At Course Hero, our vision is to be able to help any student, in any course, ask and answer any question. We aim to harness the power of educational technology to reduce barriers, enable students to get the most out of their education, and ultimately help them best prepare for their careers and lives beyond school.”

Rooted in the Socratic method, Course Hero’s platform connects students who have questions with tutors eager to help them find answers. The platform is also home to the largest course and school-specific resources, and functions as a continuously refreshed digital archive, which includes study guides, notes, and customizable flashcards.

“With more than 7.5 million educational resources tailored specifically for the courses at over 11,000 colleges and high schools nationwide, the Course Hero platform has helped more than five million users to not only earn better grades but to reach beyond the walls of the classroom and discover new methods for efficient studying and deeper learning,” continued Grauer. “Our new $1 Million investment fills us with hope that we can make a tangible difference of the education and lives of 10,000 students.”
