Hi, my name is Sina and I attend Hume-Fogg High School. During the year I try my best to volunteer after school as many time I can. I love helping in any way I possible. I love the positive atmostphere and the children's thrive to succeed. The students have a chance to get special attention while the teacher gets the fullfilment of helping the future leaders of our Country. I'm more than happy to be part of such fine and unmatched project.

5 stars! This is an incredible non profit organization. As a volunteer, I was able to see first hand the difference this organization is making in the lives of school children in Middle Tennessee. The phone rings non stop with math problems, science problems, reading and writing from children who may not have a parent at home to assist with homework. We even get calls from parents who need help! Homework Hotline provides free tutoring (not answer giving!) to children who need help outside of the classroom. I am proud to support this organization and know they are truly making a difference one child at a time.

I love visiting the Homework Hotline office in the evening when teachers and volunteers are in action. As soon as a teacher finishes one call for homework assistance, the phone rings again. It is non-stop action. What’s more important is the way Homework Hotline teachers work with students. They take time to be sure students understand concepts and master new understandings. The teachers communicate that they care about learning and the student on the other end of the phone. Homework Hotline has done more than most in our community to remove language barriers. I appreciate the respect they offer each caller.

Homework Hotline was a wonderful experience for all those involved. I was a student volunteer, and I was welcomed with open arms by all of the teachers and staff. The atmosphere at Homework Hotline is comforting and amicable. You can really tell the all the teachers really care about those students who call in, and you can see that they're giving all of their effort to help them. It made me a student volunteer want to do all that I could to help those child, and the satisfaction that I got from helping out was heart warming. I have now graduated high school and will no longer be able to volunteer, but I hope one day in the future I will be able to work with Wendy and everyone else again.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of the children who call, and in the lives of the students volunteering. The students, who call, gain a better understanding of the material; and the students, who volunteer, gain a sense of responsibility.

the feeling I get when I really help a student understand a tough concept.

This is a well run organization that does a lot of work on a very small budget. Last year provided one-on-one free tutoring by phone to more than 25,000 students or parents. They do it all in seven languages.

The difference they make in the lives of students. More than 95% leave having finished their assignment. 80% can prove they truly understand the new topic. And all this for free.
