Hi, I’m the founder of Quizlet, the most popular online learning service in the US. Ask Me Anything!
My short bio: I’m Andrew Sutherland, the founder and CTO of Quizlet. I founded Quizlet in 2005 when I was a sophomore in high school because I needed to study for a French vocabulary test. After I took the test (and got my best grade yet), I started sharing Quizlet with my friends, and they started getting better grades too. I launched Quizlet publicly in 2007 before heading to MIT to study computer science. I left after three years because Quizlet was growing too big to focus on anything else. In October 2015, Quizlet raised $12 million in VC funding, and today we are used by 1 in 3 US high school students, and more than 20 million unique monthly students and teachers. My hope is to make learning tools that are fun and engaging and reduce much of the boredom students feel in school.
