We envision a world where every student has the same opportunities

In 2014, Philip Cutler, Founder & CEO, left teaching to start GradeSlam. Like most teachers, after years of working in the classroom, he realized that no matter how good he was at teaching, all of his students still left class with different levels of understanding. Although most students sought additional support outside of the classroom, 90% of families couldn’t afford private tutoring to meet their child’s needs.

To him, education has always been about accessibility and equality. When students do not have the same access to academic support, it creates an achievement gap that follows them throughout their academic and professional careers.

Cutler felt so strongly about tackling educational equity that he co-founded GradeSlam with longtime friend and collaborator, Roberto Cipriani. With their team, Cutler and Cipriani have worked to develop a solution that levels the playing field for all students and ensures that every child can reach their academic potential.
