Redwood City, CA (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Course Hero, an online provider of learning resources, announced that it has completed the purchase of the Cardinal Scholars in-home tutoring business from its parent company, InstaEDU, an on-demand video tutoring service.
Course Hero brings knowledge and experience in the education industry that will support and enhance the current Cardinal Scholars business. Cardinal Scholars will retain its name, and Course Hero plans to operate cardinalscholars.com as a separate website from coursehero.com.
“Cardinal Scholars provides Course Hero with a unique introduction to both the offline study resources space and the K-12 demographic,” said Andrew Grauer, CEO of Course Hero, Inc. “We are excited to eventually marry Cardinal Scholars’ in-person expertise with Course Hero’s online offerings to deliver a blended learning experience that optimizes the tutoring process.”
“Cardinal Scholars is committed to delivering high-quality, in-person tutoring,” said Alison Johnston, co-founder of Cardinal Scholars and CEO of InstaEDU. “As our team focuses on changing the online tutoring space with InstaEDU, we’re thrilled to have Course Hero dedicate its resources to helping Cardinal Scholars reach its full potential.”
Cardinal Scholars currently serves hundreds of students in New York, Boston and the San Francisco Bay Area with plans to expand to additional cities in the future.
“We’re looking forward to leveraging Course Hero’s resources to expand the Cardinal Scholars presence to new locations and make Cardinal Scholars an even greater learning service for students,” said Grauer.
