THE BIRTH OF XPLR ME
Founded by founder Nirali Mehta in 2021, Xplr Me was born from the frustration of having to find teachers and mentors for herself and her two kids. Traditional classes and teachers were bound by distance and location, and by logistics, especially with the limitations brought by the global pandemic. There was always that feeling of compromise between the best teacher and mentor, and what was on offer and convenient.
Xplr Me completely eradicated this pain point by bringing educational providers and professionals together on to one platform from across the globe. Now, with Xplr Me, anyone on the hunt for classes, mentorship or guidance can visit the website, find a course that best fits their needs, at a time slot that is convenient to them. Imagine, learning a whole new language from a native speaker to the basics of photography with a professional photographer.
Nirali, Founder of Xplr Me says, “Learning has always been a passion of mine and it has always been a source of frustration when I am unable to sign up for the classes I want. When I became a mom to two kids, I also began to juggle their schedules with mine, and in finding classes that balanced their learning, between academics and life skills. This experience really opened my eyes to how it’s really difficult to find the right person to teach you what you need to learn at your convenience. That was the starting point for Xplr Me. After all, learning should be part of our life’s journey, but struggling to learn need not be.”
EXPLORE WITH EASE
Xplr Me features a wide variety of classes from academics to alternative healing, mentorship, counseling, photography, and anything else under the sun. Enthusiasts could pick from an Ayurveda course one day to a Crochet class the next.
With the classes happening completely online, students and teachers don’t even have to be in the same country! This gives students the opportunity to learn from people all around the world, and not have to settle with what is closest to them.
On the tech front, Xplr Me uses virtual tools integrated within the platform, and a custom-built calendar and appointment function to empower students to pick and choose timings, class options and tutors. Students can also pick from pre-recorded sessions to live private one-on-one classes, and group classes.
Nirali adds, “The emphasis on non-academic topics was a very mindful one. Life and social skills are just as important, and I wanted to offer that to enhance learning. Furthermore, for adults, especially, it is so difficult to pick up a new hobby with either the stressors of time, work or family coming into play. Xplr Me removes all that so adults can explore and get excited about learning new things, or picking up old hobbies again! Because Xplr Me is so flexible, there really is a whole world to explore and it all starts on Xplr Me!”
Nirali’s goal for Xplr Me is to be a platform that will empower not only students but everyone to be able to come home and learn a new hobby, a new experience or a new learning opportunity without feeling constrained by geographical locations.
