As the coronavirus forced schools to close in the spring, startup Swing Education, which matched substitute teachers with schools, saw 90% of its revenue evaporate in two weeks. It laid off staff. With most school districts sticking to online classes in the fall, the 5-year-old San Mateo startup is focusing on a new kind of business: learning pods, where it matches teachers looking for work with families who want self-contained classes. “The need that’s out there right now is pretty overwhelming,” said Mike Teng, Swing’s CEO.
