Connecting the world through learning

What We Do is a platform for free, peer-to-peer tutoring–where anyone, anywhere can receive live help, build their skills, and pay it forward by becoming a tutor themselves.

When schools transitioned to online learning during COVID-19 and students around the world craved more social interaction, access to personalized help become more inequitable than ever.

This prompted Sal Khan (founder of Khan Academy) to partner with his college friend, Shishir Mehrotra (co-founder and CEO of Coda), to create

With Mariah Olson, Drew Bent, and a handful of volunteers, they launched a pilot platform built on Coda to provide high-quality virtual tutoring to thousands of learners–completely for free.
