Homework Hotline

About the Homework Hotline

Homework isn’t always easy. That’s why the Homework Hotline is here to help. It’s a free math and science tutoring service for Indiana 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 virtually any math or science homework problem.

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

The program is certified by the National Tutoring Association.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is a private, fully accredited engineering and science college located in Terre Haute, Indiana. Since 1999, U.S. News & World Report’s survey of higher education lists Rose-Hulman as the #1 engineering institution whose highest degree is a bachelor’s or master’s.


From “Huh?” to “Aha!” – rather than simply giving students answers, Homework Hotline tutors help students truly comprehend the questions, arrive at the answers themselves, and prepare to tackle similar questions on their own.

On average, a call only takes about 12 minutes. When students are stumped by a math or science problem:
1.  They can call, email or chat online with a friendly tutor.
2.  The tutor starts the session by reviewing the problem.
3.  The tutor guides students through the problems until he/she understands the solution.
