Founder of Evolved Education Company

A Message From The Founder
We are committed to the idea that an earned reward is twice as gratifying as one that is foregone. That hard work exerted in the overcoming of obstacles will equip a student for higher education and a richer life. That information is acquired from the world but integrity is built from within. That wonder and imagination should stand alongside rigor and achievement as pillars of a child’s upbringing. And that the education of a single student is a group project requiring a circle of devoted adults.

Evolved Education undertakes its placement, tutoring and guidance efforts with the well-being of the whole child in mind, supported by our team of experienced education experts.
