"I moved to the United States when I was fifteen. This was halfway during my sophomore year and I had to catch up to an entirely new curriculum and syllabus. Being the son of a single parent, I had to manage my time and schoolwork by myself. Initially this was a struggle. However whenever I had problems, there were a few friends who always stood up for me and helped me out. A year later, after I had gotten accustomed to the school, I began to notice a need for educational support around me. Having been through a similar situation, I launched Onclass with a core team and established a free way of accessing notes and material from classes online. With our popularity rising, onclass expanded into providing tutoring for students free of cost for any subject and now we serve high schools, middle schools and elementary schools. I am finally able to say that I feel contended with the support people now can get via onclass and I hope to help every student in my community as well." - Vishnu Srinivasan
