Our Passion


Our Passion


At Mentorina, we’re transforming traditional education so that students have a greater chance for a better life.


We’re a team of dreamers and doers. We're educators and innovators on a quest to break down educational barriers so that everyone can learn the way they learn best.

By collaborating with the leaders in education and adaptive learning technology, we're empowering teachers, students, parents and schools to instill a lifelong love of learning and a passion for knowledge.

It's an audacious task, but one that inspires us.

Because when students can learn in ways that make sense to them, they'll be excited to learn and become their best. And that will be good for all of us.

We are a multi-national team united by a passion to improve the educational experience for everyone through an innovative, research-driven learning platform.



Babak Khosravifar, PhD, CEO

Babak aspires to create a world where students can enjoy learning, excel through an environment that’s personalized to them, become stronger learners and, ultimately, empowered individuals. This leads his drive to unleash the combined potential of technology and education. 

As Mentorina’s co-founder, he’s earned a hefty reputation from his academic achievements, awards and publications in machine learning, artificial intelligence, game theory and intelligent tutor systems. He leads software development, engages academic and industry partnerships, sets strategy and coordinates all sectors to make sure that the team delivers on its promise.


Ahmed Saeed, Director of Finance

Ahmed is clear about what counts: people and potential. He's inspired to grow an educational system that truly understands, embraces and supports student differences, and is determined to build a company that will help. His experience at Deloitte & Touche (Middle East), Hood Oil (Yemen), the HSA Group (Brazil) and volunteering for NGOs give him the expertise and perspective to make that possible.

Ahmed shapes strategy and directs the company's finances, managing accounts to international standards, develops strategic partnerships and secures funding. He's earned his masters degree in international business, bachelors in business (finance) and is working towards his certification as a financial analyst.


Hayel Saeed, Director of Operations

Hayel firmly believes that education is the single best pathway to solving the world’s most overwhelming issues like poverty, human rights and the environment. He gets that when things make life easier, better or faster, they'll be used more and have a bigger impact. As a co-founder, he's motivated to make sure that Mentorina delivers on this premise. 

Hayel applies his training in finance, accounting, and administration to make certain that the day-to-day details of a global operation run smoothly, including client satisfaction, managing budgets and recruiting passionate talent to the team.


Mohamed Saeed, Chief Listening Officer

Mohamed’s passion for improving students' lives is what motivates him to grow a community that’s equally passionate about making it better. Growing up in a country with a 63% literacy rate, he knows what the lack of basic tools means - even more so in a fast-paced, digital world.

He’s proudest of having built a center for capacity development for orphans and re-structuring its management so that the orphanage is well positioned to make its mission come to life. With Mentorina, Mohamed plans and implements marketing strategies, digging deep to understand what matters most to key stakeholders and refining the brand’s message to continually elevate Mentorina's purpose.

Each of our leadership team comes from a research background, and we’ve enriched our expertise by tapping the brightest minds in academia who give us guidance and feedback on big picture direction of the education industry and the details that help us deliver the highest-quality product that delivers the most valuable results.
