Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is once again be offering its free tutoring service to help students struggling with math and science homework. For more than 30 years, the AskRose Homework Help program has helped middle and high school students with challenging subjects, such as calculus, chemistry and physics.
About 100 Rose-Hulman students serve as tutors and help students in grades 6 through 12. Approximately 20 tutors are available each night.
“Sometimes by the end of the call, you have a real connection with the student you are tutoring, and they are genuinely grateful for your help,” said third-year tutor Erin McLain, a mechanical engineering senior from Avon. “Some of my calls have lasted almost an hour just working on the same problem, so when you are able to work with someone for that long and help them not just figure out that problem but find a way to help them solve it by themselves, that is always very fulfilling.”
Rose-Hulman tutors are available Sunday through Thursday from 7-10 p.m. Eastern Time to help students via video, telephone call, email, or chat.
The tutoring program also includes a website with more than 500 resources available through videos and downloadable reference materials. Click here to learn more about the program.
