Remember Homework Hotline?
I used to use it when I was younger and then I totally forgot about it! I love that I can now encourage my kids to use it (or even myself so I can help them!)
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s AskRose (aka Homework Hotline) homework help tutoring service is just a phone call, email or chat session away. Help is available from approximately 30 tutors each night,” says AskRose Director Susan Smith Roads.
And, it’s free!
Rose-Hulman students are available Sunday through Thursday from 7-10 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) during the school year to help youth in grades 6 through 12 review math and science concepts. Connections can be made at 877-ASK-ROSE (877-275-7673) or the AskRose website,.
AskRose has been helping youth for 27 years, under its former Homework Hotline name, conducting more than 650,000 tutoring sessions throughout the nation. The new name highlights the services offered in addition to phone tutoring, which includes chat tutoring, email tutoring and more than 500 resources available at. The online resources comprise tutorial videos and other downloadable reference materials.
All services are available at no cost to students or parents through a Lilly Endowment Inc. grant and financial assistance from Rose-Hulman.
AskRose isn’t an “Answer Line,” advises Smith Roads. Rather, tutors work to ensure that each student understands the steps taken to solve a math or science problem. Then, the student should feel comfortable answering similar challenges in class and on exams.
“We’re an additional educational resource for today’s hardworking and dedicated math and science teachers and school administrators,” adds AskRose Associate Director Lindsay Hull, a former high school math teacher. “Teachers aren’t available in the evening when students may become frustrated with aspects of their homework or can’t remember key elements of solving problems that a teacher explained in class. Also, in many cases, parents can’t assist their children because it has been many years since they have had these course materials themselves. In those situations, ‘AskRose’ tutors are happy to help.”
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology offers free math and science tutoring for students in grades 6-12.
