Jack Replinger

Jack Replinger is a teacher and an educational entrepreneur based in Memphis, TN, USA. He is the founder and CEO of positivephysics.org, an educational technology platform designed to make learning accessible to students of any educational background.

Early in his teaching career, he realized that traditional methods of teaching were not well suited for students who often struggled with complex problem-solving skills. He built and launched his own educational technology platform using an approach designed to make learning accessible to students of a wide range of educational backgrounds. He built the venture to reach 30,000 active monthly users and financial self-sufficiency. He is currently working to expand his methodology to other subjects.

In 2015, Jack was named a Tennessee Charter School Teacher of the Year. He received the 2018 Teach For America-Memphis Alumni Leader of the Year Award, and he was a 2020 Teach For America National Social Innovation Award Finalist.
