See Full Schedule

Homework Hotline is a live statewide call-in show where kids receive help with homework problems right on the air. Designed for children in grades four through 12, the program – which is now in its 26th season – provides the tools students need to succeed with homework, and supports academic achievement across a variety of 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 kids work through their homework.

In addition to providing homework help,  Homework Hotline presents daily thematic segments on health, animals, book reviews, history, environment issues, and people and places in New York State. . Homework Hotline sends out daily updates and helpful hints for the “Teaser” question on its Facebook page.
