Release Body: Naperville, IL. Aug 21, 2008 – You see it
on the news time and time again – American students are
falling behind the rest of the world in Mathematics, Science,
and other subjects. In fact, a recent study published Nov 14,
2007 by the American Institutes for Research puts American children
far behind their foreign peers in regards to math and science.
was this very notion that led to the birth of a new virtual learning
website dedicated to bringing US students the best educational
curriculums the world has to offer.
earlier this month, Cybershala.com is the brainchild
of Ripujeet Sharma, an engineer who found his
own children were having trouble with math. Being a world traveler,
he did some research, and found a few interesting notions.
“In my research and studying other curriculums, I found
out there was a huge ‘learning gap’ in what was being
taught, and what could be learned” says Sharma “In
essence, we’re doing it backwards, and that’s why
we are ranking so low.”
took the next logical step and created a substantial website that
acts as an online learning portal. His website offers an international
curriculum via online virtual classes, and is aimed primarily
at home schooled children and public school students who need
extra help. The first offering is what his own children had trouble
with – math.
website is starting out by offering what is called ‘Singapore

also built the educational and online learning website to be,
in his words, “effective, accessible, and affordable.
We have the best instructors, an affordable price of $10 per hour,
and the benefit of teaching the best curriculum around.”
classes themselves are also different, exclaims Sharma: “The
classes differ from traditional online classes in that there is
real interaction. We have textbooks and workbooks that we provide,
and small 6-person virtual classes with face-to-face live video.
The child is in their home, but they can see and hear the teacher,
and vice-versa, in real time.”
other words, it’s a real class” adds Sharma.
the website has launched with the focus on k-12 math, Sharma also
plans to add science and technology based curriculums in the near
future, making cybershala.com a well-rounded answer to some of
America’s most troubling academic questions.
Cybershala.com inc. is an online educational portal dedicated
to bringing the best of international curriculum to the US, and

and what can be learned. Their first curriculum is the highly
