Rose-Hulman’s ‘Ask Rose’ Ready to Help Local Students with Math and Science Homework

 

Area middle school and high school students confronting math and science homework problems from a new school year can find help a phone call, email or chat session away through Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s AskRose tutoring service.

And, it’s free!

Rose-Hulman students are available Sunday through Thursday from 7-10 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) during the school year to help youth in grades 6 through 12 review math and science concepts. Connections can be made at 877-ASK-ROSE (877-275-7673) or the AskRose website, AskRose.org.

AskRose Director Susan Smith Roads says, “Homework isn’t always easy. However, AskRose makes assistance easily available through a variety of different resources, including approximately 30 tutors each night.”

She points out that rather than give students the answers, tutors guide students through homework problems to help them better understand math and science concepts. Student privacy is always protected, and students are never asked for their last name or telephone number.

The service, certified by the National Tutoring Association, has conducted approximately 700,000 tutoring sessions since starting in 1991. AskRose.org also offers more than 500 resources available through videos and downloadable reference materials.

All AskRose services are available at no cost to students or parents through a Lilly Endowment Inc. grant and financial assistance from Rose-Hulman.
