Homework Hotline, the live statewide call-in show where students receive help with homework problems right on the air, Monday-Thursday from 4:30-5:00pm on WXXI and PBS stations across New York State. Designed for students in grades 4-12, Homework Hotline provides the tools students need to succeed with homework, and supports academic achievement across a variety of New York State Learning Standards. Teachers from Rochester Dial-A-Teacher take the calls and send them to WXXI studios in Rochester, where host teachers, who are experts in subjects across the curriculum, are standing by ready to help students work through their homework assignments live on television. The Homework Hotline website supplies a video player, games and information to help with those homework challenges as well. Also try the challenge to see if you will be an end of year show host and appear in the Homework Hotline Hall of Fame.
Students and parents who need assistance with
homework are invited to call Dial-A-Teacher at 585-262-5000 or toll-free at 1-888-986-2345
from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. There
is no charge for this service. Dial-A-Teacher online assistance
is also available. You can email your questions to teachers
at [email protected]
Some questions will be answered through the Homework Hotline TV series
