What can GetEdu do for us?
GetEdu could provide online courses and coaching services for your employees or members in creativity, design thinking and communications. Please contact us for details.
How different is GetEdu from a training company?
We could provide both training and individual coaching (short term or long term) for the members of your organization. Most training companies can only cover the training part.
How different is GetEdu from a MOOC?

GetEdu is different from a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) in these ways:

  • We do not offer courses that are massive in size. Ours are smaller groups so that the students and coaches can have a closer interaction. Our coaches review student assignments and also lead live sessions with students.
  • We create all our courses specifically for online learners of all levels, all ages and from everywhere. We understand how to present the content in a way that everyone can learn, including English Language Learners.
  • We’ve mapped out pathways for learners so that they can see how they are building skills throughout their learning.
  • We care deeply about our customer experience and want to build a community where coaches and learners can connect and where learners can continue to learn. That is why we are not a marketplace that sells courses. We are interested in more than the financial transaction. Like you, we have very high standards for what education can be.
What kind of teaching and learning methods will be available?
We offer both online and offline learning opportunities, depending on the needs and budget of the client organization. Please contact us for details.
What are the pricing options?
We do have different pricing options for organizations. Please contact us for details.

What can GetEdu do for my child?
GetEdu will empower, inspire and motivate your child through online courses and professional coaching in three most critical soft skills: creativity, design-thinking and communications. We strong believe those skills are important for anyone in 21st century, and yet students are not learning much from their schools or elsewhere.
How different is GetEdu from a tutoring company?
GetEdu is very different from any tutoring company. Tutoring companies only focus on academic subjects or standardized tests which, in our humble opinion, have become more and more irrelevant in college applications or job applications. GetEdu focuses on building and reinforcing your child’s life skills, so that he or she can be truly successful in the real world, regardless of what college attending or what job profession chosen.

  • We create all our courses specifically for online learners of all levels, all ages and from everywhere. We understand how to present the content in a way that everyone can learn. Most MOOCs just upload content designed for college students who are native English speakers, and sometimes just the slides they use in the classrooms without any consideration or modification for online users.
  • We care deeply about our customer experience. Unlike Coursera or Khan Academy, we are a for-profit business company and every customer will pay for the course. If the customer is not satisfied, we lost the business. So we don’t just focus on how many visitors to our website, but also how much we can help each one.
  • Last but not the least, we are not an "education marketplace" - such as Udemy, WizAnt or TakeLessons, to name a few - that we just try to list as many courses or coaches as possible. We focus on soft skill education - creativity, design-thinking, communications - and we interview every single coach and only a handful of them will be selected as our coaches. To a large extent, GetEdu is more like running as an education institution with very high standard for education.
How do I know what level should my child start with?
If you or your child is not sure which course to select, we will be more than happy to provide a free online evaluation to help you decide it. Please contact us for details.
What kind of teaching and learning methods will be available?

GetEdu could provide online courses and coaching services for your students in creativity, design thinking and communications. We also organize offline meet-ups for community events and summer workshop/events for immersed learning. If you can’t find the online courses that you would like to sign up, please contact us for details.

You are also welcome to read our blog for some of the past events that we had organized and sign up our newsletter to join us for future events to learn more about GetEdu.

How do I know whether my child has learned?
With each course, you will be able to read about the course goals. Each completed assignment will be returned with feedback for your child. At the end of the course, he coach will share a final summary of his/her feedback to your child. The feedback your child receives will be based on a course specific skills list. As parents, you can also set up a conference with the coach to help you understand what your child has learned.
How much can GetEdu help my child’s test scores?

GetEdu is not and will never be a test-prep company. We just don’t believe education is just about test-preparation and about getting a full SAT/TOEFL score, for example.

Having said that, we do strongly believe that our courses and coaching do have a positive impact for students’ academic results. More importantly, we make their learning experience more fun.

Will GetEdu help my child get into a better college?

Similarly, GetEdu is not and will never offer college-prep services. Don’t get us wrong - as graduates of Berkeley, Stanford and MIT, all 3 cofounders are grateful for our alma maters’ education - but GetEdu is not about getting into a college. Our value is in creating opportunities for your child to be able to “show” what s/he is capable of doing.

GetEdu is about empowering your child to become a creative person who knows how to solve complicated issues and communicate with diversified audience. Whether he or she will become a student in engineering, business, art or any other major at any college, those skills are critical and meaningful.

What can I learn from GetEdu courses and coaches?

We won’t teach you tips for how to get a full SAT score, but we will teach you how to write a creative, powerful and authentic article which could bump up your writing score or get a nod in college application essay. Similarly, we won’t teach you how to pass AP Math, but we will coach you how to solve real world challenges even if you are just a teen. Most importantly, although we won’t necessarily teach you how to win every argument or win each student club election, we will help you communicate better and build friendships - we don’t mean just in your city or country - on a global scale.

Curious about the relevance of developing creativity, design-thinking, and communication skills? It might be hard to imagine why as a teen, but ask an older relative, cousin or neighbor and see what they say!

The world has changed. Soft skills matter most. Are you ready?
