Amidst the adversities of the pandemic, a vision to give Filipinos a better future has begun. Chalkboard was born out of the compassion of the people behind it to make online education accessible to parents and learners not only here in the Philippines, but also around the globe. Chalkboard is an online tutoring and learning platform, that helped parents connect to tutors to help them with their kid’s homework and exams while their kids are out of the traditional classrooms and school systems had been transitioning to distance learning.

Chalkboard is an EdTech company that connects parents and learners to top-quality Filipino tutors. Since its launch last 2020, it has been patronized already by a lot of Filipino families making it the leading online tutor marketplace in the Philippines. Through Chalkboard’s consistent quality service and equally brilliant tutors, their reach has been growing more and more.

This year, they are taking a big leap and have been expanding their tutoring services not just within the country, but also in different parts of the globe such as Asia Pacific, Europe, the United States, and the Middle East. Within such a short period of time, since they began conquering the market, it is rightfully commendable to acknowledge that Chalkboard is already making a mark in these countries.

One of the very reasons for this continued success is merited to the pioneers and strong leaders of Chalkboard. When you have people who are committed to a purpose, it is no wonder people took notice. And that is exactly what Chalkboard had recently achieved at the Asia Leaders Awards.

Last March 22, 2022, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Bonifacio Global City, Chalkboard’s COO, and Co-Founder, Albert Tablan, received a distinguished award as “Top 50 Rising Tigers: Nation Builders” by Asia Leaders Awards. Asia Leaders Awards is the Philippines and Southeast Asia’s largest business awards event and is behind the recently held “Rising Tigers: Nation Builders”.

In line with this year’s Year of the Water Tiger and with the Veri Peri as the color of the year, the theme of the event mainly revolved around bravery, strength, newness, and happiness. This celebration is dedicated to reminding everyone that despite all the hurdles, challenges, and struggles, strong leaders continue to step up to continuously give honor and pride to their companies, people, and communities.
Chalkboard is very fortunate to be led by determined, passionate, and hard-working people. Mr. Tablan has been giving his best for the company since day one. Chalkboard holds so much promise, not just to learners and parents, but to the whole education community itself.
