About Homework Hotline

The Homework Hotline provides free math and science tutoring over the phone. We’re open five nights per week, Sunday through Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. PST. We’ve always been a free service, and we always will be.

We launched in 2010 with the help of the Homework Hotline at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, providing free, over-the-phone tutoring to students in the greater Los Angeles region and beyond. Since then, we’ve helped tens of thousands of students learn math and science, one call at a time!

Our tutors are all students at Harvey Mudd College, one of the top-ranked STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) schools in the nation, and they’re all selected for their technical expertise AND their superior communication skills. They get extra training to make sure they give you the best possible service!

Student privacy matters to us. We don’t ask for your last name or phone number, though we do ask callers to share their school and grade level for our reporting purposes. We are funded by the Simons Foundation and Harvey Mudd College.
