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 30,000 students find confidence and success on the path to college.
