About Us


StudyHammer is a technology company in the EdTech sector. We have built a patent-pending learning system that sends study Questions to a Student's mobile device, using scheduled push notifications.

Our team has worked with market leaders to internationally scale numerous applications for mobile and desktop. We have the capabilities to deliver technical and design modifications, from API integrations with existing LMS and cloud platforms, to UX / UI design changes.





OUR STORY

StudyHammer began in late-2018, when a 16-year old named Jaidin had the idea of answering a study question to unlock his phone. He and his friends use their phones all the time, but this idea would help them learn in bite-sized doses, without feeling like they're studying.

Later, he mentioned it to his dad, Tom, while they were reviewing his homework and getting ready for a test. They decided to give it a shot.

Tom partnered with Dean, a long-time family friend and successful tech entrepreneur, to design and build a basic, functional prototype.

They shared it with Students, Teachers, and Administrators in their network. After receiving positive feedback, they recruited a development team who began building StudyHammer.

In 2019, Version 1 was completed and went into testing with a small group. Meanwhile, the team began adding the Teacher and Parent Portals and the Landmark Game to Version 2, creating a viable and full-featured enterprise solution.

In 2020, the pandemic may have slowed progress, but Patent applications were filed and Version 2 was finished in the summer. It is currently being tested by a wider group of Students and Teachers, with plans for a Q3 release.

By the way, Jaidin's nickname is Hammer. Ding – time to study, Hammer!! 🤓 🔨
