    7. Varsity Tutors Raises $50 Million In Series B

      Varsity Tutors Raises $50 Million In Series B

      Editor's Note: What I like about this model is how they focused on graduates of very strong universities to become their tutors.  That sets up a strong differentiator. Perhaps this is a Learning! 100 opportunity, or a Learning! Hero play, but I'm not sure of the strength of the draw from the marketplace view.  Interesting idea.

      Varsity Tutors, the platform that connects elite tutors with students, has just closed a $50 million Series B funding round led by Technology Crossover Ventures and Adam Levine, frontman for Maroon 5 and judge on The Voice, as well as education executive Stuart Udell. Varsity Tutors is based out of St. Louis and looks to pair students with the most brilliant tutors available — folks…

      Today is George Boole’s 200th Birthday

      Today, November 2, 2015, marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of George

      Boole, one of the most influential mathematicians of all time – though it would be
