Yup is an education technology company that was founded on a simple yet powerful vision: empower every student to learn. Yup provides schools with 24/7 access to math tutoring so students can learn on their own schedule. Our service promotes long-term math success: with each session, students improve their ability to understand and solve any new problem, not just one that fits a specific pattern. Our teaching methods were rigorously developed with education professionals with decades of teaching experience.
Yup is proudly backed by Stanford University’s StartX and Sesame Street’s VC, Collab + Sesame. Yup has provided academic support to students across the USA, and is looking for passionate folks to help make a difference in every student’s life!
