Our Story

StudyPoint's founders had a simple idea: to create a better alternative to impersonal learning centers.

With that goal in mind, co-founders Richard Enos and Greg Zumas began StudyPoint (StudySmart, Inc.) in Boston in the late 1990's. They focused on the needs of families who wanted a higher level of customer service and convenience, and on students who would benefit from individualized, one-to-one instruction.

Early on, the company invested heavily in curriculum development and training standards, so that its tutors could deliver consistent and reliable academic and test prep results to families. As the company grew, it added additional services and programs, ranging from individualized needs assessments to innovative online homework tools.

After establishing a strong base in Boston, the founders repeated their model for success in Washington DC, New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia. Continued positive feedback and results led to continued expansion across the US.  Today StudyPoint offers one-to-one, private in-home tutoring in 23 metropolitan areas across the country and has established itself as a national leader in its field.

Based on its success with face-to-face tutoring, in late 2011 the company developed an innovative model for delivering one-to-one online tutoring. After years of exploration and thinking, the company launched a pilot to study the efficacy of its programs when delivered online. The pilot entailed giving away almost $250,000 worth of free tutoring to study student outcomes from online tutoring, and at its conclusion the founders were thrilled to find that the online students earned nearly identical score improvements to their face-to-face counterparts. As a result of this successful pilot, the company launched online tutoring to students across the country in 2012, and today serves thousands of students nationally and internationally via its online tutoring programs.

Throughout the years, StudyPoint has earned numerous awards for its exceptional growth (Inc 500/5000 nine times, BBJ Pacesetters three times) and its progressive work-environment (50 Most Engaged Workplaces two times). We're a values-driven workplace that delivers exceptional educational programs to our students, and in our almost 20-years of operations we've helped over 40,000 students find confidence and success on the path to college.

Current Full Time Positions

StudyPoint’s mission is to help kids succeed in school. We’re a growing ed-tech company and a leader in the online and face-to-face tutoring space.
 
While we think we have a great story to tell on multiple fronts, we’ve done very little PR throughout our 20-year history.  We’d like to change that, and as a result we’re seeking someone to help us develop and pitch several storylines to local and national media outlets.
 
If you’ve built a great public relations skill set, can manage multiple key initiatives independently, are a creative problem solver, and take pride in deploying high quality marketing efforts, then we encourage you to learn more about joining our team.

Responsibilities
  • Help develop and craft the narrative and strategy for our outreach.
  • Build campaign materials and media contact lists.
  • Distribute and pitch company storylines across local and national media outlets.
  • Coach senior leadership team on media engagements and interviews.
  • Work with members of our marketing team and our CEO to integrate and align on brand messaging.
  • In addition to the above core responsibilities, you’ll have the opportunity to wear multiple marketing hats and contribute on projects as we look to continue innovating on the marketing front.
 Qualifications
  • A strong intellect (and a Bachelor’s Degree).
  • 4+ years of public relations experience.
  • Excellent written communication skills and strong pitching skills.
  • An exceptional work ethic and meticulous attention to detail.
  • A passion for marketing and helping kids.
  • Ability to react and adjust to shifting priorities.
Benefits
  • This will be a full-time position, though it will start out as a temporary role with the potential to become permanent.
  • Work from home.
  • The opportunity to work side by side with senior leadership to shape marketing strategies and campaigns.
  • A tremendous opportunity for learning and growth: you'll be a key player on campaigns that affect the entire organization's success. (You'll never find that level of responsibility and exposure in a large company.)
  • A fun and supportive team that is as intelligent, as driven, and as passionate about their work as you are.
  • The certainty that the work you do contributes to the educational success of students across the country, and soon -- the globe.
