During the school year, 826NYC offers homework help and writing instruction for students 6 to 18. Tutors assist with homework in every subject and lead students in writing and reading-based enrichment activities. Student writing created during tutoring is published in small chapbooks throughout the year, and we regularly host student readings for parents, tutors and families.

A Note About After-School Tutoring
To better serve our students and families, we have switched from a drop-in model to a registration model for our weekday after-school tutoring program. We have limited amounts of space for students, and are prioritizing returning students, students who need academic support, and families that demonstrate financial need. Right now, the weekday program in Park Slope is at capacity, but there are spaces available at our Williamsburg location. In addition, Sundays in Park Slope and Thursdays in Williamsburg remain open to drop-in students.
Parents, if you are interested in registering your child for tutoring in Park Slope, please complete the following application: Park Slope AST Wait-List 2014-2015. If you are interested in attending only the Sunday program, you may come by the center any Sunday between 3:00-5:30pm to register your student(s).

After-School Tutoring and Writing Guidelines
826NYC offers tutoring centers where students may come to work on and receive assistance with school or individual work. Although students are encouraged to feel at home while in the center, they are expected to have homework to do when they arrive. They are also expected to be respectful of their surroundings. We reserve the right to ask students we feel are being disruptive to leave. Please understand that 826NYC’s tutoring program should not be considered an alternative to daycare or babysitting services.
The tutoring center closes promptly at 5:30pm. Parents are responsible for making any necessary arrangements for getting their children home. The program is also closed in accordance with the Department of Education calendar and emergency closing decisions. If school is closed in the event of a snowstorm, hurricane, or other event, we will also close.
