I just learned that Harvey Mudd College, one of the Claremont Colleges, is starting a free Homework Hotline, which will provide free math tutoring for local students in grades 6 - 12.
The hotline opens February 1, and is available to students in Claremont and Pomona Unified School Districts.
Students are invited to call the Homework Hotline toll-free at 1-877-8 ASK-HMC. The hours are Sunday through Thursday from 7PM - 10PM (through May 2010). More information available at www.AskHMC.org
Here's a little more information from the organizers:
"Homework Hotline callers speak to Harvey Mudd College students who are trained in over-the-phone tutoring and have access to district-adopted mathematics textbooks, as well as supplemental math resources. The Homework Hotline currently employs 39 Harvey Mudd students and will have about 8 tutors available per evening. The program’s mission is to help students reinforce math concepts, develop problem-solving skills and become independent learners."
