(Content Provider)

Since 2007, Shmoop has been a digital publishing company with a point of view. Our teaching method revolves around the basic idea that learning is often too hard—so we carry gallons of academic WD-40 to squirt on the tracks whenever we can. And as an added bonus, we’re funny. At least we like to think so.

We own 100% of our content and present both a consistent voice and a distinctive product offering. Ourfree Learning Guides, Online Courses, College Readiness Prep, and Test Prep balance a teen-friendly, approachable style with academically rigorous materials to help students understand why they should care.”
