The Aitano Mission
Our society's educational systems have to evolve so that students find the knowledge they need with accountability and efficiency. We are committed to making it easy for educators and students to share knowledge and find the best way for every student to learn, democratizing the authority and flow of education and unlocking the value of tailored, one-to-one learning experiences for every subject and student.
We are building a web service and online tool suite to make it fast and easy for students to find, connect with, and endorse tutors that suit their unique curricula and learning needs. We're starting by building a web site, and we will make our application integrate to several other common points of the student/teacher online experience. Our application allows small tutoring businesses to differentiate and grow, and helps students assess their needs to achieve the highest level of performance and satisfaction.
Our founders began work on our strategic concept immediately after graduating from college in 2007. Their experience in entrepreneurship, tutoring, and academics (in cognitive psychology and economics) help them find insight for an approach to market dynamics and social software that improves the learning experience.
Our developer staff combines for over 30 years of developer experience including success at Pandora Media and Cambium Learning, as well as multiple acquisitions of technology companies and teaching experience in computer science. Our model has been refined in consultation with our advisory board and several education industry professionals including principals at the USC Rossier School of Education, the Stanford University Graduate School of Business, and the National Tutoring Association.
Life at Aitano
Early on, we recognized that passion is a necessity, but it only counts if it's correctly applied. To make sure we focus our energy in the right place, we've created an environment that lets us quickly shift between fine focus and big questions and everywhere in between. We've built our team to emphasize a proactive and data-driven approach to solve problems quickly and robustly, with a lot to learn from the experience. We make the most of each opportunity, be it business development, product design, or marketing, by profiling keys to success and emphasizing measurable goals to spur execution in every constituent piece of our objectives without any wasted motion.
