GAQNA employs “Peer Tutors,” who are often current undergraduates or recent alumni of Houston’s Rice University or Dallas’s Southern Methodist University or similar top-tier institutions.
“We’re very fortunate to have such easy access to so many fantastic tutors in Houston and Dallas,” said Joe. “Our offices are just a few blocks away from world class universities like Rice in Houston and SMU in Dallas that makes our recruiting a lot easier. And such access enables us to offer tomorrow’s six-figure professionals at discount student rates.”
GAQNA is available Sunday through Thursday between 2pm and 10pm US central time and 12pm to 5pm on Saturdays. Parents pay a fixed fee of just $39 per day, regardless of when their child logs in and off. Fees cap out at $390 per student per month meaning that parents get the best value, and students get the best grades by logging in often and staying late. Families only pay for what they use and there are no long-term commitments.
