Parsa Rezvani


Parsa’s parents immigrated to the U.S. from Iran in search of educational opportunities which motivated him to start, a student tutoring marketplace, with his friend and cofounder, Alejandro. Parsa’s father and grandfather were both teachers for over 20 years (community college and K-12 respectively) and Parsa’s mother is still a VP of Engineering in the technology industry, so Parsa’s ambition has always been to make a positive impact in education at scale, leveraging technology. When Parsa isn’t working on GoSchoolBox, you can find him playing volleyball or soccer, reading, or trying to get Alejandro and Sharn to laugh at one of his jokes.
