About InstaEDU

What is InstaEDU?

InstaEDU is the world’s top online tutoring service. We connect students with tutors from top universities, combining the convenience of working online with the quality of in-person tutoring. On InstaEDU, students can get last-minute help, do regular lessons throughout the semester, or connect when a quick question arises during an assignment. Our individually screened tutors cover more than 2,500 subjects, ranging from basic subjects to AP material to advanced college courses.

Who we are

InstaEDU was founded in 2011 by three entrepreneurs: Alison Johnston Rue, Dan Johnston and Joey Shurtleff. Prior to founding InstaEDU, Alison and Dan (siblings) founded and sold an in-home tutoring company, and while running it, realized that technology could play a role in making tutoring more accessible and more affordable. Today, InstaEDU has more than 20 employees and has raised two rounds of funding, led by The Social+Capital Partnership and Battery Ventures.
