Homework Hotline is opening a new satellite office in Shelby County Schools staffed by SCS teachers. This new partnership also created a new Hotline number for Memphis students.
Hotline remains dedicated to working with all K-12 students in Tennessee, but by hiring SCS teachers, Hotline is bringing in teachers who are very familiar with different curriculum taught in different parts of Tennessee, specifically in Shelby County.
Hotline’s mission remains the same: to provide free tutoring to K-12 students in Tennessee over the phone or online chat. The new Shelby County teachers will join the Nashville teachers on the other end of the phone lines, just in a different location.
Opened in 1990, Hotline has hosted over 530,000 tutoring sessions. Since August 2018, Hotline has held over 7,300 sessions with over 3,000 unique students and parents. With teachers who can speak Arabic, Spanish, Farsi, Hindi, and Swahili, students and parents/guardians who speak a language other than English can also find assistance. Technology like online chat, text-an-image, online whiteboards, and Google Docs, Hotline bridges the gap of not being in the same place as the student calling. In fact, many students value the ability to “call for help” from where they are, whether it’s in their living room, at a relatives house, or even from school or the library.
Hotline is excited to be welcomed into a partnership with Shelby County Schools, and knows that this partnership will provide even more students with free tutoring after school.
The new phone number is 901-416-1234. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
