Papercity Profile

General Academic is featured in February’s edition of Papercity on page 6 in the editorial section.  Editor-in-Chief Holly Moore writes:

Once my child passed sixth grade, I am loath to admit, I really couldn’t help him with homework. Who has ever heard of Chicago Math. And Algebra II? Forget it. I am now addicted to the recently opened Study Lounge in West University Village. President Shelby Joe, who began General Academic in 2003, and VP Stephen Hayes, both [sic] Rice School grads, have created a teen-approved, coffee-shop-like space with study areas, kitchen and private conference rooms. Most of the 40-plus tutors who man the Lounge are Rice undergrads and grads. Simply walk in, and your child will be checked in, and tutors make sure he or she works through an agenda. Mom pays by the day or month or opts for an unlimited subscription. General Academic has been a go-to for in-home tutoring for eight years, and the Lounge offers day-to-day tutoring, as well as intensive skills assessment and ISEE, SAT and ACT prep classes limited to eight students (which my son just completed), as well as foreign language and creative writing workshops. Finals will be here before you know it. Open Sunday through Thursday, 4 to 9 pm, and Saturday, noon to 5 pm.

[sic] Stephen graduated from Houston Baptist University and is constantly bemoaning the fact that he’s surrounded by all things Rice, not to mention our stadium size flag in the office.

We’re thrilled by Holly’s words and think it’s a great follow up to our full-page feature in the Houston Chronicle last May, which you you can also view online.
