This app is a lifesaver!


After hearing about Penji from a friend, I decided to give it a shot when I was struggling in class. I was surprised by how easy the app is to use! They matched me with a perfect tutor who was knowledgeable in the specific subject of my class and who actually made the tutoring sessions really fun! Not only did I crush the final but I had such a good time learning with my Penji tutor that I am actually planning to pursue this subject that I used to literally be scared of :) Thank you Penji!!

So glad I found this service!


After going to office hours and peer tutoring centers with little success, I tried out Penji and it saved my grades! The tutors are always ready to help and easy to talk to. If I don’t understand something the first time, they’re great at reexplaining to really get the info across. I was about to pay $40 for a private tutor, but Penji is way cheaper and even better quality. I’m excited to try their group sessions next!

Highly recommend


I really enjoy this app. Very easy to use and I’ve never had a problem getting a tutor. I’ve had four different tutors and they all were very qualified, and they knew what they were talking about. The pay rates are reasonable in contrast to private tutors that sometimes charge around $50 an hour. I’ve never used a group tutoring sessions but they seem useful and the price is even better per hour.
