A Waterloo-based startup that helps high school students better prepare for post-secondary education just received a big boost from a local, individual investor.

Minute School is an online platform offering tools to help students bound for higher learning, and the funding will allow for a broader course offering and better technology.

“We can now hire subject matter experts, who are typically PHD’s, as well as first-year university students and second-year university students who actually build the content,” said Tushar Singh, CEO and Founder of Minute School.

One of the app’s newest features is a series of free math preparation courses ahead of EQAO testing for Grade 10 students.

The courses are run through a pay-as-you-go format for as little as $5 per course, and you can find them on both mobile and web platforms.

They’ve already launched some monthly courses online, and they hope to have 20 fully operational in two years time.

The app is available now on both Android and Apple devices.
