Our Story

Therin and Zach have been friends and filmmakers since their freshman year of undergraduate school. In the spring of 2018, as they were preparing to make their next film, they realized their video production skills would be put to better use teaching finite mathematics, a required course for all undergraduates at Indiana University. Because so many students struggle to successfully complete this course, and may end up paying tutors hundreds of dollars over the course of a semester, they set out to create an affordable service that would help students get an A in their finite courses.
