Meet the teachers, volunteers, staff, and Board of Directors that allow Homework Hotline to provide thousands of FREE tutoring sessions to Tennessee students!
Our tutors are all certified teachers who are passionate about helping students. They are multi-generational and multi-cultural. We can't do what we do without them. (Interested in working with Homework Hotline? Contact us!)
Our volunteers keep the wheels turning! They are a dedicated group of high school students, retired teachers, and community members who generously give their time to help Homework Hotline achieve its mission.
When you call the office outside (or during) tutoring hours, our staff will be there to help!
Hotline’s mascot helps keep spirits up in the office! Alfred makes appearances to make sure teachers get some attention, and to help clean up any extra crumbs from their snacks that they may have left behind!

Would you like to be a volunteer?
Volunteers are an important part of Homework Hotline! They are a dedicated group of high school students (known as Hotline Scholars), retired teachers, and community members who generously give their time to help Homework Hotline achieve its mission. Volunteers come in to Homework Hotline's offices to prepare materials for counties, organize and send prizes to students who have contacted us, or other essential office work supporting Hotline’s staff and teachers.
You can find a full list of our current volunteer opportunities by searching for Homework Hotline on the Hands On Nashville website (click here).
Homework Hotline Scholar (High school students)
Be able to come to and work from the Homework Hotline office. (During COVID-19, our staff is also brainstorming virtual opportunities for volunteers.)
Hotline Scholar Benefits:
Volunteer hours can be used for National Honor Society, Beta Club, or other service clubs/organizations.
Homework Hotline provides useful resources (textbooks, teachers, recommendation letters) as you complete high school and prepare for college.
High school students who volunteer with Homework Hotline for more than 125 hours are eligible to receive a Hotline scholarship toward any college or university.
