Wize has helped over 100,000 students excel in STEM subjects, and EssayJack has helped over 30,000 students master academic writing, from book reports to persuasive speeches to academic essays. Together, Wize and EssayJack will help students build lasting numeracy and literacy skills that will lead them through high school, college, and the economy.
“Our acquisition of EssayJack complements our core educational content by complementing our robust STEM offering with a world-class literacy tool,” said Cyrus Moradian, CEO of Wize. “We know that students and educators are hungry for resources that build student knowledge and confidence – and don’t just take a shortcut to the answer,” Moradian said. He continued, “Our combined platform will help students understand, critically assess, and communicate effectively in STEM, English and beyond. “
As part of the acquisition, Dr. Lindy Ledohowski, CEO of EssayJack, joins the Wize management team as Vice President of Operations. “This pandemic has changed education,” said Ledohowski, a former high school English teacher and university professor who also served for 8 years on the board of trustees of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. “When Cyrus and I first met, it was our shared goal of seeing all the students succeed that got us started on the road to joining forces. With the enormous loss of learning unevenly experienced by students in North America, we knew the time had come to combine our efforts to most effectively support student and educator success.
Moradian said, “I am particularly excited about how the addition of EssayJack increases the value and reach of our offering ahead of the launch of our new on-demand All-Access Pass this 2021-2022 academic year. With the inclusion of the tools from EssayJack, we will have the most cost-effective and impactful additional STEM and literacy learning offering on the market.
The combination of Wize and EssayJack creates a powerful Canadian electronics technology company ready to accompany students and educators in North America to realize the potential of students.
Wize and EssayJack will launch in schools, colleges and universities in Canada and the United States in August 2021. Wize and EssayJack content will be available to students through the All-Access Pass for a low monthly fee.
