Aggie Homework Helpline

The Aggie Homework Helpline (AHH) is an initiative to help provide quality, free online tutoring to PK-12 learners and families. The mission of the AHH is to connect Texas families and school district partners with Aggie tutors and education interns who are committed to improving learning outcomes for PK-12 students.

How it works

Learners will work with a recurring tutor where they will interact via Zoom.

For Fall 2023, the Aggie Homework Helpline is ONLY offering recurring tutoring with Bryan and Hearne ISD, through a partnership with the Heart of Texas GEAR UP.

Tutoring for Fall 2023 will take place between September 18 – November 17.

Homework Help Program: Fall 2023

Recurring Homework Help

For Fall 2023, AHH will provide recurring tutoring sessions with our current partners, Bryan and Hearne ISDs.

AHH currently provides tutoring to a subset of 10th-grade students through a partnership with the Heart of Texas GEAR UP and the two school districts. If you are a parent/guardian whose child attends one of these districts and are interested in having your child participate in the Aggie Homework Helpline, please contact Dr. Marcia Montague.

More About our Homework Helpers
Learn from Aggie undergraduate students who are ready to help you tackle any homework challenges you may have. The Aggie Homework Helpline ensures all of our Homework Helpers have completed background checks and received specialized training in tutoring to support K-12 learners. Receive private, 1-on-1* tutoring in math, English, Spanish, science, social studies, research skills, time management, organization, and more. Students can share their screen and send photos of their homework pages with the helpers so students can get specific assistance. Our Homework Helpers are primarily pre-service teachers and education students/interns—Aggies who believe in selfless service.

*As an added measure of security, PK-12 students will not interact one-on-one with Aggie Homework Helpers. Instead, there will be two Homework Helpers, working in tandem, to support one or more students while on the phone or interacting via Zoom.

Helpline Resources for Families

Families will find free resources such as: read-alouds, mini video-taped lessons, guides to skill development, and much more. All of the resources on this site will also support English language learners, learners with a disability, and most of all they are all free. The resources of AHH are created by Aggie education students and faculty. In addition, we’ve found great PK-12 resources around the state and the nation for Texas families.

Free Tutoring Resources
  • Brainfuse allows children to actually do a live interactive visit with a tutor. It’s in 20-minute increments with a whiteboard, so you can work that math problem – if you are doing physics or chemistry you can do the sophisticated things. This live tutoring service is also available at libraries in Fort BendMontgomery, Galveston, and Brazoria counties.
  • Gale offers free tutoring help for high-school and college students.
  • Learning Express Club offers tutorials for elementary to college kids and even adult education courses.

The key to access all of these services is to have a library card. In most cases, you can register for a library card in minutes and have immediate access to the online options available. For curbside pickup or equipment rental, you will need to bring in proof of residency. Check with your library for exact instructions on how this might work, each one is a little different.
*Note: when checking some of the program links above, you will see you have to “join” or there is a membership fee. When you go to these sites through the library you will not have to pay for it. So, check with the library system in your area to get access to the program websites.

For younger kids, most public libraries have a free service that will help your kid with reading. Tumblebooks are animated picture books. It reads the book to you the words are on the screen, it either highlights it or it has a bouncing ball so your emerging readers can connect with literacy.


The libraries in Montgomery County use a service called “book butler.” You can submit in the ages of your kids and they will put together a collection of books for you to come and pick up curbside. Houston and Fort Bend County also offers a similar service.


Some of the larger library systems offer free wifi hotspot and electronic rentals. Fort Bend County just started a sign up for renting out wifi hotspots to help parents with virtual learning. Houston has wifi rental too, along with a laptop and iPad rentals on a first-come, first-serve basis. In Brazoria County, you can rent tablets too. *Note here: check with your library to see if they are renting out electronic materials. Remember, most libraries are closed right now and they are all full of electronics that were once for in-person use. While the website might not say they are renting out electronics online, many are taking items they have in the library that was once for in-person use and renting those out. So, call and check to make sure!


All library systems offer some sort of book reading club or even DIY classes for all ages. Brazoria County libraries just started up a new program called Creativebug that has video DIY classes for use.
