Knowre was born from an after-school math tutoring academy in South Korea. The academy focused on providing a personalized, assessment-based learning experience to every student. However, as the academy grew in popularity and size, it became increasingly difficult for us to give every student the same level of personalization and attention.
We sought out tools to enhance our ability to personalize learning for the rapidly growing student body, but realized that such a tool did not exist. So, we decided to build our own tool that would bring this vision to life. Thus, Knowre was founded in 2012 with the mission of delivering an engaging and personalized learning experience to students around the globe.
Since our founding, Knowre has become a leading provider of educational technology and math content in the United States and South Korea. Knowre is available for schools across the United States and we have also partnered with major companies such as Daekyo, Sylvan Learning, and EBS.
Knowre was named “Best Instructional App” by New York City Schools GapApp Challenge and was recognized as “The World’s Top Ten Most Innovative Companies in EdTech” by Fast Company.
Studies have shown that the most effective way to educate is to consider and meet the needs and learning styles of each student. In a subject like math that builds on itself, individual attention and support is critical in preventing small gaps from turning into gaping holes that may stifle the understanding of more complex concepts.
However, it is a daunting task for one instructor to single-handedly provide such a personalized learning experience in today’s large and diverse classrooms. With Knowre, educators have the tools and resources to provide each student with the personalized support they need, precisely when they need it, on concepts they need it most.
