Located on Montgomery Avenue, the bar is a collaborative social learning environment where students can gain extra tutoring outside of the usual constraints of a cubicle-like setting.

The bar and lounge, which was created by co-founders and co-CEOs Ronit Tehrani and Edward Kraftmann, provides 12 tutors with two of them working full-time. They help students with their homework either in groups or through one-on-one tutoring.

“One thing for us was finding people that are passionate about whatever subjects they’re teaching,” said Tehrani.

The Homework Bar grew out of Tehrani’s previous endeavor, the nonprofit So2Speak geared towards speech fluency and therapy for people who stutter.

The goal of the bar is to expand that community to encompass overall education in a fun, relaxed, and safe space.

He is also planning on adding classes on robotics, food chemistry, and coding.

“If kids have an idea, we’ll go out of our way to make it happen,” added Tehrani.
