Aihe’s vision is to create a world where any learner can become an expert. Our first mission is to empower teachers to be excellent educators AND do everything they love.
Imagine a world where every learner has the opportunity to become an expert in their chosen field. This is the story of Aihe's vision, born from a transformative encounter with a high school student named Sam.
As Sam approached the end of high school, he faced numerous challenges. Despite attending an expensive and exclusive school, Sam was a slow learner, especially in computer science. Falling behind and struggling with his grades, Sam had only months to prepare for the rigorous IGCSE exams and catch up on years of content. To make matters worse, his computer science teacher and the school-provided tutors had given up on him.
But Sam had something special: grit and a genuine motivation to learn. It was through his determination that he found me. Sam's parents reached out, expressing their concerns and sharing his story.
Before meeting Sam, I discovered a groundbreaking psychometric assessment that hypothesized how individuals learn best. Coincidentally, our cognitive style matched perfectly. This alignment became the catalyst for a powerful partnership.
Together with Sam, we identified Sam's goals and created a tailored learning plan that covered all the topics he needed to master. Sam shared his existing learning materials, and we conducted extensive research to provide additional resources. Meeting weekly, we dove into the material, addressing his specific needs and nurturing his confidence.
The results were astounding. Sam's grades improved significantly, and his newfound confidence propelled him to complete his IGCSE exams. He even pursued computer science in his A-levels and is now attending university. While his field of study isn't directly related to computer science, his enhanced understanding of the subject has left an indelible mark on his academic journey.
This success led us to a crucial realization: the current educational system fails to prioritize individual learners' needs. Education remains teacher-centered, overlooking the unique requirements of students like Sam.
Furthermore, the prevailing one-size-fits-all model perpetuates the challenges faced by learners. Students are matched with teachers without considering their individual learning styles, leading to frustration, disengagement, and missed opportunities.
We liken this to the early days of the internet when finding relevant information was a daunting task. Users had to sift through directories and hope for the best, often encountering irrelevant content. Similarly, education today lacks a laser focus on individual student needs.
At Aihe, our mission is clear. We aim to revolutionize learning by understanding how individuals learn best, just as was done for Sam. Our vision is to empower learners, guiding them on a path to expertise in any subject they are motivated to pursue.
To achieve this vision, we're developing tools that serve both teachers and students. Our initial focus is on alleviating the marking burden faced by educators. We understand that teachers often spend countless hours outside their paid work to grade thousands of questions. We want to change that.
We're inviting 25 to 50 dedicated individuals to join our user research program. By participating, you'll contribute to making marking less of a headache for teachers, ensuring that every student receives the feedback they need and deserve. Imagine the possibilities when every student's learning journey is enriched, unlocking their highest potential and elevating humanity as a whole.
If you were once like Sam, navigating an educational system that failed to meet your needs, now is the time to take action. Together, let's reshape education and create a world where anyone can become a doctor, an engineer, or any expert they aspire to be.
