Frequently Asked Questions

​​​​​​​Is the Homework Hotline a free service?
Yes. There is no charge associated with calling the hotline and receiving tutoring support.  

What if there are no tutors available when I call in?
You may be placed on a brief hold if tutors are assisting other students. When the next tutor becomes available, they will take your call.  

How long can I work with my tutor?
Time is not limited. However, based on the volume of calls, tutors may need to limit the number of materials they can address in a single call.   

What if I forgot to ask my tutor a question during my session? Can I call in again?
Yes. Students can call the hotline more than once per evening, during hours of operation.  

What if I don’t have my books or materials with me?
Tutors expect that students have the required materials for homework. 

Can we utilize video during a call?
Tutors can assist with homework that is difficult to explain by utilizing Teams. Please always call the hotline first to connect with a tutor, and once connected, ask your tutor if it will be possible to switch to a Teams call.
