Parents and students there are a number of free homework helper sites available to our students. Here are just a few (this list will keep growing as more resources become available).
Learn almost anything for free. With a library of over 3,300 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, we’re on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.
Students from University of Illinois at Chicago, in conjunction with NBC5/Telemundo, provide free homework assistance to Chicago area students via Homework Hotline. Whether it’s fractions, word problems or calculus, there is math help at the other end of the phone at the Homework Hotline. Subjects for which help is available also include history, science, reading, social studies, language arts, biology, chemistry, and civics. Volunteers who handle the phones do not give the answers — they work with students to help them arrive at the answers on their own.
If you need help with your homework, please call NBC Homework hotline at 312-645-5555 Monday to Thursday through 5:00pm-8:00pm.
