HOW DID IT ALL START?

When Peter immigrated to Canada at the age of 17 with his family, he faced a lot of challenges in adjusting to his new surroundings. During his time at the University of Toronto, he noticed how much harder it is for international students to overcome the language barrier and achieve high grades. After he graduated, he solely focused on building a business to help university students unlock their full academic potential and succeed in their studies.
