What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I love helping students arrive at the ‘Oh-I-get-it-now!’ moment. It makes me happy to think that there are fewer confused people out there.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

If you’re stuck on a homework problem, you should call. If you want to talk about volcanoes, you should call. If you’ve always wondered what polar coordinates are, you should call.

Also, I really enjoy when students call about their homework, then continue to ask questions purely out of curiosity. One student called and just wanted to chat about black holes.

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

Tutoring is a relaxing and fun way to communicate with people. It’s a great way to give back to my community and polish my own understanding of topics. And the absolute best feeling is when someone truly gains a whole new understanding on a topic they felt insecure about. I know school can be difficult, and I want to make sure I support people so that they can achieve their full potential.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

Homework Hotline is a great place, full of super fun and caring people who are students just like you! We’ve been through it all and understand the challenge of engaging with new academic topics. We love learning and tackling problems with people. I highly encourage students to give Homework Hotline a try.

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I love helping people with any opportunity I get. If I can help someone out academically, I’ll do my best. Benjamin Franklin said, ‘An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.’ So tutoring is not only fun but very practical! I hope not only to help someone understand but to also to help someone enjoy and love the subject.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

Rather than remain annoyed and frustrated with homework, by calling the Homework Hotline, you will save time and better your understanding of the subject. There are many benefits, and the only cost is the energy it takes to dial our number!

Hobbies: Cycling, running, basketball, reading, chess

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I find that many students have a hard time conceptually with new or difficult material, especially in mathematics and the sciences, that deters them from studying that material even further. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me a chance to help students understand these fundamental concepts and (hopefully) become excited about them and want to explore these fascinating fields for all they have to offer.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

Students should call the Homework Hotline whenever they are stumped by a concept, don’t know how to proceed in a problem, are confused as to how to even start a problem, or just want to ask about cool science and math things, and anything in between!

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

It’s a great feeling to be able to help others when they are struggling. There are few greater feelings than when a student understands a difficult topic after a push in the right direction from the tutor. Also, being part of a program that I wish would have been available to me at that age is a great feeling.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

Homework Hotline is a great way to get help on problems in any subject. The homework hotline tutors are all very friendly and helpful. Homework hotline is a great resource to utilize once you have attempted your problem multiple times. Although the tutors will not give you the answer to a problem, they will guide you in the right direction and give you the resources and tools to complete the problem yourself, which is definitely much more rewarding.

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I need a lot of help with my work, and I love being able to pass that on. I get a lot of energy from helping others with homework.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

The tutors are very relaxed and absolutely love to help. It’s an amazingly easy way to get homework help. I wish I’d had this in high school and elementary school—it was hard to find ways to get help from friends or teachers because I lived far from school.

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I feel that science is really fun. I want to help everyone understand and love science!

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

We help the students by guiding them in the right direction so they can figure the problem out by themselves. It not only lets them finish their homework but also builds their learning skills for other topics in the future.

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I love being able to help students who are struggling with the same problems I struggled with throughout elementary, middle and high school. I feel as though helping them to understand those concepts means that the work I put in to understand them was well worth it.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

The Homework Hotline is full of tutors who are super excited to get calls from all kinds of students. We’re really prepared and love to help everyone out in any way we can. It’s not scary to call!

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

Tutoring is a great opportunity for me to share the things I love, like math and science, with excited students. I love when tutees get to see that they have all of the knowledge they need to solve their difficult problems and that they can find their answers by breaking their problems up into smaller parts.

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

The Homework Hotline is a great resource for students, whether it’s a call to check an answer, to get help on a math or science problem, or to go over something you didn’t understand in class. We are truly interested in helping in any way that we can. Best of all, it’s free!

Languages spoken: English
Hobbies: Hiking, painting, social entrepreneurship

What do you enjoy about tutoring?

I have always loved the process of learning and enjoy how tutoring allows me to share that passion with others. I think that both the tutor and the student have a lot to gain from the experience. Explaining basic (and even more complex) principles challenges my understanding of concepts I take for granted now. Also, it makes me happy to help and especially to hear the excitement of students on the other end of the line!

Why should students call the Homework Hotline?

The hotline is a great opportunity for students to receive help in a convenient and easy way. I think that is incredibly important because difficult access to help can often be discouraging, and I want students to be excited to learn and practice things!
