About AskRose

Homework isn’t easy. That’s why AskRose is here to help. It’s a free math and science tutoring service for Indiana and other students in grades 6-12.

Tutors are Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology students who major in math, science or engineering—which means they’re more than equipped to help with just about any math or science homework problem.

Student privacy is always protected, and students are never asked for their last name or phone number. AskRose is funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

The program is certified by the National Tutoring Association.

"As a teacher and a parent, I know this program works. My son called for help on calculus homework and instead of just getting an answer, he walked away with a real understanding of problem solving. He was able to work with someone closer to his own age who speaks his language, which helped him understand the steps and retain the information."

-Kent Messick, Science Teacher, Wood Memorial Jr./Sr. High School, Oakland City

"I cannot express how thankful I am for the AskRose. My tutor really reinforced some principles that we’re working with [in class] right now and made me feel relieved."

-Student Caller

"AskRose has been a savior for many of my students who become stuck or frustrated at home by a particular problem or set of problems. The tutors are very friendly and helpful, and their suggestions help my students remember what they learn in the classroom."

-Sandy Cowgill, Math Teacher and Department Chairperson, Muncie Central High School
