About Us

Welcome to Jiskha Homework Help!

Every day Jiskha helps thousands of students with their homework by maintaining a free, ad-supported question and answer platform which is accessible 24/7 by anyone in the world.

Anyone can ask a question, and anyone can answer questions. No registration is required.

History

Jiskha Homework Help was created in 1998 as a simple website which hosted basic school notes for a handful of classes such as history, geometry, and language arts. Over the years Jiskha evolved into its present form as a Q&A platform on which anyone can post homework questions and receive help in any subject.

The website, "Jiskha", was named after the founder's late dog. The word "Jiskha" means "good girl" in a native Bolivian language called Aymara.

In 2019, Jiskha began launching sister websites in languages other than English. Our most popular languages aside from English are Sesotho, Spanish, and Tagalog.

In 2021, Jiskha Homework Help became a property of Jiskha LLC in Texas.
