Our story starts in Africa, with a small group of American parents who wanted to support their children’s education needs while living overseas. As expats, their kids attended schools with varying curricula and missed out on fun American programs like U.S. History and Civics. Some students had critical gaps in their Math and English skills due to frequent moves or abrupt evacuations. Parents of Gifted or Special Needs students found that their overseas school could not accommodate their child’s learning needs. Other students just needed a little extra support repatriating to the U.S. school system after being abroad for a decade or more.
We created Twiga Tutors to help! Our certified American teachers use award-winning education technology to guide students through U.S. Education Standards anytime, anywhere. Our aim is to make learning fun, engaging and rewarding for students anywhere.
That’s it, pure and simple.
What’s with the giraffes? Twiga means giraffe in Swahili and connects us with the continent where our company began. The giraffes also symbolize our commitment to bringing an amazing education to kids anywhere, even in the African savanna 🙂
