How does it work?

1️⃣ You share with us information about you, your student or child - as much or as little as you want to.

Our 11-year-old is doing great in school. She is super creative. Not a math fan, but loves history and literature. Took her to the aquarium last weekend and her eyes just lit up 😍. She was especially fascinated by the jellyfish and now she's started a marine life journal. Might have a future marine biologist on our hands!

2️⃣ We process your request and match with appropriate educational videos on YouTube.

3️⃣ You receive a video recommendation along with our justification why we chose it for you.

Given her recent fascination with marine life from the aquarium visit, she might find this Numberphile video about fish's ability to understand numbers super interesting! 🐟🔢

Like a personal navigator in the vast universe of online educational content, we aim to direct students to the most relevant materials quickly and efficiently.

Prioritizing StudentsUnlike algorithms driven by ad-revenue and engagement, our focus is solely on your educational and personal growth. We tailor our recommendations to align with your unique learning style and objectives, ensuring meaningful academic advancement and well-being.

Educational Content EvaluationWe employ AI to "watch" millions of videos, mapping a vast sea of online educational content. We discern teaching styles, educational value, and subject areas, enabling us to navigate the wealth of resources and identify those that will enable growth for each student.

TransparencyWe use only the information that you willingly share with us. It can be something quantitative like grades or a story that illustrates your learning style. Then, we justify every recommendation with an explaination based on the information and criteria you provided.
