Sathish Bala, CEO, Founder
LinkedIn, sathish@schoolio.io

Hi, I am Sathish Bala, an award-winning serial entrepreneur with a track record of building impactful businesses. More importantly, I am the father of 2 young children in Grades 1 and 7. Schoolio did not have a name until March of 2020, when the world changed.

To provide some context, 2 years ago, my daughter was diagnosed with acute ADHD and her school was convinced she needed to be medicated. I was not convinced. During the summer of 2017, I spent countless hours looking into homeschooling and realized how challenging and life changing it would be for our family. We decided not to medicate my daughter, she made it through Grade 4 and went on to crush it in Grades 5, 6 and now 7.

When #COVID19 hit and schools started shutting down, we were caught completely off-guard.  We did not know how to continue supporting our kids at home. While schools and teachers continue to find innovative solutions, this is an unprecedented environment, and I believed my team and I could react and help with a parent-focused solution.

We are Schoolio. An online platform connecting parents to accredited Canadian teachers, teaching the board-prescribed curriculum. We believe in getting involved, not just watching from the sidelines. There is a great need for a more accessible and affordable alternative to what is available today. We believe that Schoolio meets that challenge. I encourage you to reach out and speak to me. Share your ideas and concerns. Help us shape our children’s educational future!

Why Schoolio?

Schoolio bridges the gap between teachers, students, and education, at a fraction of the cost of other options. We provide students with a reliable course structure and parents with flexible options. While there are many other options available to parents, we believe we bring a valuable, new solution to homes across Canada.

FREE Online Resources

There are many free online resources available to parents who are homeschooling their children. While these resources are free to use, as parents, it is also challenging find and organize everything available. Schoolio’s platform is an easy way to find relevant resources for your child along with accredited teachers to help.

After School Programs

After school programs offered through OXFORD, Kumon, ICAN and others can be costly. They average between 5k to 12k annually. This option is not affordable for most parents. Our focus is to create an affordable and sustainable model for parents.

Private Tutors

Parents needing extra help can find tutors online, through classifieds and word-of-mouth introductions. While most tutors are subject matter experts, they do not know how to teach students. We believe teachers should teach our children. With Schoolio, parents have access to accredited teachers who have the experience and expertise to help with 1-on-1 tutoring and Study Group sessions.
