Who We Are

AMA was founded on a desire to create an online education community that connects experienced educators with all types of learners, from all backgrounds. AMA is a safe and reliable place where students can consistently get homework help, take workshops, interact with peers from across the country, and experience the support and assistance that are so crucial to academic success.

At the end of the day, we’re just three friends who believe in the value of education. We saw a problem and want to help fix it. If all students are given consistent support and access to engaging opportunities, they will be empowered to learn and continue pushing themselves to succeed. Together we aim to change the way this country views education and treats educators, and we’d love for you to help us on this journey.

Meet Jesse

esse received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California. He started his first company Phonetag at 19, which he later sold to a Nasdaq listed company.
