Free ‘AskRose’ Math & Science Homework Help Tutoring Program Ready to Assist Students

A new school year has brought challenges for middle school and high school students trying to make sense of their math and science homework – especially when it comes to solving problems in such challenging subjects as algebra, calculus, physics and chemistry.

Thankfully, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s free AskRose Homework Help program is available to help.

Free Science and Math Tutoring for Middle School and High School

Rose-Hulman tutors are available Sunday through Thursday from 5-10 p.m. (Eastern Time) for tutoring sessions to help students in grades 6 through 12 by computer screenshare, telephone call, email, or chat. Tutors can be accessed via the AskRose website,, or by calling 877-ASK-ROSE (877-275-7673).

Also, Spanish-speaking tutors will be available each Tuesday from 6-10 p.m. (ET).

AskRose Homework Help services may be even more valuable this school year as children return to the classrooms after the summer break.

The website also offers more than 500 resources available through videos and downloadable reference materials.

Students Helping Students

About 100 Rose-Hulman students, attending the nation’s No. 1-ranked undergraduate engineering college, serve as tutors during each school year. They are specially selected upon faculty recommendations for their technical knowledge and ability to communicate with students of all skill and comprehension levels. Approximately 20 tutors are available each night and they have access to textbooks and many other resources to lend valuable assistance. The AskRose Homework Help program is certified by the National Tutoring Association.

“We’re making AskRose as accessible as possible to help students when they are doing their homework and might need help understanding a challenging math or science problem. Our students are well-prepared to lend a helping hand,” says AskRose program supervisor Bernadette Ewen, senior director of Rose-Hulman’s Logan Library and student learning resources.

Rather than give students the answers, AskRose tutors guide students through homework problems to help them better understand math and science concepts, the way they are taught in schools today.  

Student privacy is always protected, and students are never asked for their last name or telephone number.

The website also offers more than 500 resources available through videos and downloadable reference materials.
