Please note that the Homework Hotline will be CLOSED for Winter Break from December 16, 2012 to January 21, 2013. HWHL will re-open on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at 6 p.m.
I want to help students learn and expand their field of knowledge. I want to help minimize the obstacles that there might be to their learning, and tutoring provides this, and the Homework Hotline provides tutoring to the masses.
I really like working with kids and I think it is important to share my love of math and science.
I love mathematics and I love to help people understand it. Having the opportunity to hear the joy in comprehending a new math concept is an amazing thrill.
I know how frustrating it can be to not understand how to solve a tricky problem. While it may be hard to do, it’s important to ask for help rather than just give up. Having a patient, kind, and intelligent tutor can make all the difference. I want to be that tutor.
Mathematics is fundamental to any society, and I like to be a part of strengthening ours. Plus (ha!), I like math, and it’d be neat to encourage others to like it, too.
I wanted to spread the power of math!
To help youth in the community who would not otherwise have access to one-on-one tutoring.
Education, especially math and science education, is a cause dear to my heart.
All Homework Hotline tutors are Harvey Mudd College students selected for their technical knowledge and ability to communicate clearly. The hiring process requires a formal application and interview. Prior to taking the first tutoring call, all tutors attend an initial training session and a hands-on training.
Each semester, tutors complete 10 hours of tutor training and participate in a formal tutor evaluation process.
