For example, if John or Sally are struggling with understanding Algebra, you can simply type in the topic into the search bar and up will pop numerous videos clearly explaining the topic and beyond!

Quote from the founder:

“I teach the way that I wish I was taught. The lectures are coming from me, an actual human being who is fascinated by the world around him.” —Sal
