- By Kristal Kuykendall
A new tutoring, wellness, and career coaching platform called Holistic Learning launched this week to help high school students succeed in academics as well as in life, according to a news release.
The startup, founded by neuroscience, physiology, and meditation researchers Eli Marx-Kahn and Kush Patel, said its mission is to “help create a generation of purposeful, confident, and happy young people who are ready to take on the many issues our world faces. By integrating services in multiple domains – academics, wellness, and career development – we aim to help students find their unique paths in life.”
The subscription-based platform incorporates 1-on-1 tutoring, wellness and meditation courses, learning strategies, college counseling, career development, and life skills through individualized, self-select tools such as breathing exercises to reduce anxiety, college application advice, and career seminars with professionals from dozens of fields.
“We know that students who are healthy, happy, and stress-free are much more receptive to new knowledge. Holistic Learning equips them with the skills they need to manage their many obligations while prioritizing their own well-being,” said Kahn, the company’s chief wellness officer.
The subscription pricing is based on how many tutoring sessions are included each month; the plans start at $39 per month per student. Sliding scale scholarship opportunities are available for low-income families, by inquiring at [email protected]
