Since its launch in 2016, QANDA has solved over 1 billion problems submitted by students from over 50 countries. Over 3 million questions are asked and searched through QANDA every day.

After the company launched the Vietnamese service in August 2019, QANDA ranked no.1 on Google Playstore’s Education Chart in Vietnam in just two months. The iOS version was released this February and scored no.1 on the App Store’s Education Chart in just two weeks.

Seeing its impressive growth, Mathpresso opened the Vietnam office in November 2019 and launched the online/offline tutoring platform, Qandaclass (qandaclass.vn) this October.
“QANDA, from the very beginning, has focused on providing equal educational opportunity for Vietnamese students”, said Paek, Head of Mathpresso Vietnam. “To fulfill that mission, we are planning to partner with rural schools to benefit from QANDA service. Also, through Qandaclass, we want to build a platform where qualified teachers give online/offline tutoring service”
