TERRE HAUTE — The phones are ringing again at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology for Indiana's Homework Hotline.

The free math and science tutoring service for students in grades 6-12 has started up for its 23rd year.

The college students who work as tutors take an average of 300 calls an evening — nearly 37,000 in all for last school year.

Hotline assistant director Tony Karras tells the Tribune-Star that it's fantastic when the hotline's office is buzzing with calls.

Tutors also help students by email and online chats. The hotline number is 1-877-ASK-ROSE. Tutors are available between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays.
