To pique a student’s curiosity is to imbue them with the power to accomplish anything.

We believe in the power of education to pique a curiosity to know the unknown.

Piqosity’s SAAS technology and content marketplace are tackling big challenges.

Piqosity is an integrated assessments and personalized learning platform. We enable educators to better understand their students’ strengths and weaknesses and for students to proactively improve and nurture their capabilities.

Shelby Joe (周) is Piqosity’s founder. He first started tutoring out of his Rice University dorm room in 2003.

I am lucky and honored to have this opportunity to make a difference. My grandparents immigrated from their homeland–devastated by the second World War–barely able to read or write in their native language. Yet, in America they found hope, tenacity, and a community rooting for their success. They lived the American Dream, a dream largely driven by opportunity through education.
