Who We Are
Our founder, Shanava Saintolien, birthed the company from her love for education. A Miami native born to immigrant parents, she realized the importance of education very early on in her studies. Though she recognized this, she also realized how many students (herself and her peers included) would benefit from additional academic support outside of the classroom. Shanava began tutoring her peers in chemistry and mathematics in high school, then went on to earn her B.S. in Mathematics (with a concentration in Secondary STEM Education) from Florida State University. Following her undergraduate studies, she obtained her Master’s in Public Administration and most recently an MBA from Florida International University. Shanava brings over 10 years of combined tutoring and classroom teaching experience to the company through her employment/volunteering with Leon County Schools, Miami Dade County Public Schools, Breakthrough Miami, Uncommon Schools, GIVE Volunteers, and other organizations .
