I really like how the World Anchor helped my kid, she said. They really help her understand everything. She learned how to read the clock, how to understand reading and book.
One World Anchor serves diverse students in different geographic areas, Jiang said.

But the services and the students that are helped are from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Through word of mouth and social media, One World Anchor has grown exponentially since its founding, expanding courses to include coding and music and providing over 4,000 hours of lessons over the course of three years.
Im hoping to spread One World Anchor to more states,” Jiang said.
