Knowre for Homeschool: Frequently Asked Questions

About Knowre

+ How do you pronounce Knowre and what does it mean?

Say “Nori,” like the seaweed. Knowre, phonetically, is the Korean word for “play.” We are focused on making learning fun and engaging for students!

+ How long has Knowre been around?

Knowre began in 2008 as a popular after-school math academy in South Korea that focused on providing a personalized, assessment-based learning experience to each student. As the academy grew in popularity, it became increasingly difficult to deliver a personalized learning experience to every student.

We sought out tools to enhance our ability to personalize learning for our rapidly growing student body, but realized that such a tool did not exist. So, we decided to build our own tool that would bring this vision to life. We founded Knowre in 2012 with the mission of delivering an engaging and personalized learning experience to students around the globe.

+ What is the name of the mustached character?

His name is Dr. Doug and he serves as Knowre’s math coach!
