We can attest to the fact that once our students have an idea — especially when it comes to starting a business — nothing can slow them down.

An entrepreneurial course piqued John Faila’s, ’15, imagination his senior year, inspiring him to create Trilogy Mentors based on his experience with tutors. Faila focuses on a relationship-based holistic approach to tutoring and is now collaborating with 15 schools across the country to sponsor tutoring programs for students.

“Forty percent of students in the U.S. receive tutoring, but a large group out there still needs that service,” he said. “We hope to pair those students with an academic mentor so everyone can reach their full potential.”

With all of the success thus far — there are 7,000 hours of contracted tutoring scheduled through June — we can only imagine where John’s entrepreneurial spirit takes him next!
