HOUSTON - Feb. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- General Academic, a Houston-based academic consultancy, announced today that its live, on-demand homework help service is now available to the general public at

Short for General Academic Questions and Answers, GAQNA uses advanced web conferencing software to enable on-demand access to its tutors, who are physically located at offices in Houston and Dallas.

“We designed GAQNA to be the ultimate homework companion and to make parents’ evenings less stressful,” said General Academic Founder Shelby Joe.  “We’re particularly proud of the face-to-face audio and video interaction that’s made possible and safe because the tutors are physically located and managed in our Dallas and Houston offices versus working remotely from home like other services.”

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.
