Partner, Director of Instruction
After being voted best instructor in the Midwest by students at a larger tutoring company, Stefan struck out on his own with MyGuru because he'd been told to stick to the textbook one too many times!
While pursuing his MBA at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management in 2009, Mark Skoskiewicz founded MyGuru after reflecting on his experience using tutors during his studies and acting as one as an undergraduate business administration student at Indiana University. He recognized an opportunity to connect students of all ages and abilities to elite tutors without the extra layers of logistics, management, and marketing that are found at many instructional firms.
Starting in 2018 (even before COVID!), the majority of MyGuru instruction began moving online under Director of Instruction, Stefan Maisnier, who became a partner in 2019. Prior to joining MyGuru full-time, Stefan used his own degrees in communication from the University of Southern California and journalism from Northwestern University in a variety of roles at ESPN in Connecticut, in Paris, France at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, and as a Public Relations Director for City Colleges of Chicago.
