Our team makes this whole thing go. Sure, that’s a platitude, but it’s one that we stand behind. From the beginning, our ethos has been defined by the people who work here — they’re our culture. Everything you see or experience through Wyzant is a reflection of our collective drive to simplify one-to-one learning. To make education better than it’s been before.
Drew co-founded Wyzant in 2005 with his Princeton classmate, Mike Weishuhn. As a tutor himself, Drew saw firsthand the confidence that 1-1 learning inspired in students, yet knew how difficult it was for tutors to build their business. After launching nation’s largest tutoring marketplace in Northern Virginia, he relocated Wyzant to Chicago and raised $21.5 million from Accel Partners. Drew lives in the city with his wife, Katie, and incredibly photogenic labradoodle, Bogey.
Mike co-founded Wyzant in 2005 with his Princeton classmate, Drew Geant.

Mike and his family live near the company’s Bucktown, Chicago office and is the owner of the other office dog, Bacon.
