A donation to Learnathon means...

6,500 children receiving one-on-one tutoring,
75 third grade students learning to read,
30,000 fourth graders getting free multiplication flashcards,
12 teen volunteers getting into good colleges,
80 college students learning to be great teachers.

None of this can happen without your support. With your help, children get the tutoring they need to be better prepared, more confident, and ready to succeed.

Learnathon will support the following hotline initiatives: The Reading Initiative: 55% of Nashville’s children cannot read at grade level. Many cannot read at all. In a special pilot project, Homework Hotline’s certified reading specialists are providing twice weekly reading coaching to 75 third grade students who cannot read. We call them, we tutor them, and we test them. You can be a part of a wonderful experiment.

Homework Hotline at Belmont University: 3,000 children will get free tutoring from 80 Belmont students. Children get the tutoring they need while Belmont students learn about teaching, community service, and public education. It’s a win-win situation.

Teen Tutors: 12 Nashville high school students are volunteering at Hotline. We want to give each of these outstanding volunteers a $1,000 scholarship for providing 150 hours of service.


It’s frustrating when you don’t understand your schoolwork. It’s even more upsetting if you have nowhere to turn. Homework Hotline needs your support to provide free one-on-one tutoring for struggling students who are motivated and asking for help.
