Rose-Hulman offers free tutoring

TERRE HAUTE — Middle and high school students who need extra help with science and math may get it for free by calling, emailing or chatting online with tutors at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s Homework Hotline.

The Homework Hotline is a free math and science tutoring service that helps students in grades six through 12. Phone lines and online chats will be available between 7 and 10 p.m. through May 2014.

“When a student is stuck on a homework problem or doesn’t understand a concept, the Homework Hotline is here to help,” said Susan Smith Roads, director of the Homework Hotline. “Our tutors provide an extra, free resource to help Indiana students tackle math and science subjects, from algebra and chemistry to calculus and trigonometry.”

Tutors are Rose-Hulman students who provide free sessions and assistance with homework problems to students who call 1-877-ASK-ROSE (toll free) or submit questions by e-mail at www.AskRose.org.

More than 30 tutors are available each night to answer calls and online inquiries, and approximately 150 tutors and supervisors will be employed this year. Tutors are selected based on their technical knowledge and communication skills.

During the 2012-2013 school year, Homework Hotline tutors answered 37,000 calls, conducted a record 3,767 online sessions and helped students from every Indiana county. The service has answered 401,839 calls since 1991.
