From “Huh?” to “Aha!” – rather than simply giving students answers, AskRose tutors help students truly comprehend the questions, arrive at the answers themselves, and prepare to tackle similar questions on their own.
When students are stumped by a math or science problem:
They can call, email, video, or chat online with a friendly tutor.
The tutor starts the session by reviewing the problem.
The tutor guides students through the problems until he/she understands the solution.
For training purposes and quality assurance, all tutoring sessions are recorded. The full privacy statement is available here.
Before the call, the student should gather his/her homework assignment, pencil or pen, paper and calculator. While you don’t need a textbook to contact us, AskRose has many math and science textbooks and other resources that schools use.
Online chat is available during operating hours: Sunday – Thursday, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. (ET)
Tutors are available to answer calls during operating hours: Sunday – Thursday, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. (ET), and Monday - Thursday, 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. (ET). Call 877-ASK-ROSE.
Email questions can be submitted at any time and tutors respond to emails during operating hours: Sunday – Thursday, 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. (ET), and Monday - Thursday, 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. (ET)
"I enjoy tutoring students because of the excitement that I hear in their voices when they just start to understand a problem. That satisfaction is even greater when they are able to do the next problem for me without any help."
"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
"Homework Hotline 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
