Free Online Tutoring for NYC Students
All K-12 NYC public school students (or, parents and teachers on these students’ behalf) can sign up to be matched with a tutor and college students can sign up to tutor on our home page. In the event that we have extra tutors available to match, we will consider matching students from outside the NYC area (again, we will prioritize those who are low-income).
