Before my friend Megan O'Connor launched her new company Clark, an amazing operational assistant for tutors, I had a special opportunity to speak with one the company's early testers: Legacy tutor Josh Sohn. I was shocked to learn that he works 12-hour days, helps 35 students a week, and has tutored over 1,600 kids since he started in 2001. The more we chatted about the moving parts of his rigorous schedule the greater I understood the enormous need Clark is fulfilling for tutors, parents, and the education system as a whole.
As we prepare for a significant increase in the number of students who require academic support outside of the classroom, Megan and her team are playing a critical role shaping the future of education. I am incredibly proud of their efforts and thrilled to share Megan's episode of Beyond the Headline. She gives us a close look at the state of education and tutoring as well as her experiences building Clark, from finding her superstar co-founder Sam Gimbel to the lessons she learned raising capital.
Here's a glimpse of our conversation. We'd love for you to tune into Megan's full episode below and let us know what you think.
