District Homework Helpline

The Long Beach Unified School District provides homework help to students who are striving for excellence and achievement. Homework Helpline consists of college tutors who guide students through homework assignments via the telephone.

The service is free to all Long Beach Unified students. Homework Helpline is a rare service furnishing on-demand, personal tutoring. Tutors are equipped with school textbooks and are trained to help the students help themselves. If a student's homework is not from a textbook, it's not a problem. The tutors are highly trained and can help with almost any subject. They assist the students in approaching the problems, using a variety of methods. They are not there to simply give the answers! Sorry!

Students calling on a regular basis are rewarded with prizes. The tutors will ask for pertinent information such as full name, school of attendance, grade level, and teacher's name. They keep a database with this information, thus enabling them to send the prizes. Students calling often will profit academically and earn really cool goodies! So you can't lose! CALL TODAY!
