Approximately 20 AskRose tutors are available Sunday through Thursday from 5-10 p.m. (Eastern Time) for free math and science tutoring sessions with students in grades 6 through 12 by screenshare, telephone call, email, or chat.

A free math and science homework help tutoring service provided by Rose-Hulman students has expanded its evening hours and added Spanish-speaking tutors on Tuesday nights to help even more Indiana students during the 2023-24 school year.

The AskRose Homework Help program is now available as early as 5 p.m. and until 10 p.m. (Eastern Time) Sunday through Thursday for tutoring sessions with students in grades six through 12. Assistance can be provided through 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).

“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,” said AskRose program supervisor Bernadette Ewen, senior director of Rose-Hulman’s Logan Library and student learning resources.

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.

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.

All AskRose Homework Help services are available at no cost to students and parents through Lilly Endowment Inc. support and financial assistance from Rose-Hulman.

AskRose Homework Help has conducted more than 750,000 tutoring sessions since starting in 1991.
