The Story of Acadsoc
How Did Acadsoc Start?
Acadsoc was established in 2010, when the co-founders Anson and Alice, who had studied and lived in the United Kingdom for more than 10 years, began to implement their strong belief in the benefits of British education and their passion for their country into the concept—an online academic society, Acadsoc.
They developed an online platform to match students with tutors for tutoring anytime and anywhere, with the hope of improving access to education on a global scale. From this, a one-stop shop for languages, academic subjects and skills, Acadsoc, came into being. Anson and Alice then invited many reputable professional tutors to join Acadsoc to contribute to high quality online tutoring services.
