Students struggling with algebra, chemistry and other subjects now have a new resource at their disposal.
Matt Fouts, 20, a Terre Haute native and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior, has started a tutoring business called Rose-Learning. The Web site, with contact information, is at www.rose-learning.com. The business entrepreneur has three other Rose-Hulman students tutoring with him: Jon Krotz, Stutay Monga and Jama Johnson.
Fouts, who has worked with Rose-Hulmanâ€™s Homework Hotline in the past, became aware that some students need more personal, one-on-one assistance. â€œI saw that the kids sometimes didnâ€™t understand,â€ he said.
By offering the one-on-one service, the tutors can better explain concepts and show students how to answer a question or solve a problem. The cost is $25 per hour, and Fouts believes that initially tutoring would be offered once a week for its clients. The sessions will be offered at a downtown public facility.
