Education Services • Homework Helpline
The Harvey Mudd College (HMC) Homework Hotline is an over-the-phone, mathematics and science tutoring service for students in grades 4th-12th grade who need assistance with their mathematics and science assignments (i.e. homework, studying for a test).
Both the phone call and the tutoring are free to all student callers. A homework hotline tutor will guide the student caller with guiding questions and encourage the student to be an active participant in his/her learning. The tutor will use the student’s prior knowledge and encourage student to use all available resources first.
The tutor will also invite the student to write down procedural steps in his/her own words to help him/her solve other similar problems on his/her own.
The goal of the tutor is to help the student caller with one homework question, and then encourage him/her to try solving similar problems on his/her own.
The student caller is invited to call the homework hotline again, if s/he gets stuck on another problem (similar or different to current question).
