Tutoring Center

826NYC hosts after-school tutoring Monday through Thursday from 3:00pm-5:30pm at the South Williamsburg branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Because it is a homework-help, reading and creative writing program, you will get to flex your writing skills, as well as your math, science, and history muscles. Don't worry if it's been a while since you've thought about the Pythagorean Theorem, though, staff and volunteers are always around to help!

Tutoring offers the chance to give back to the community while also getting to know a bunch of awesome students and volunteers. Why not come check it out?

Mission Statement

826NYC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind we provide drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of our free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.

Description

826NYC is modeled after 826 Valencia, a nonprofit writing lab and tutoring center located in San Francisco's Mission District. Founded by writer Dave Eggers and a group of energetic and passionate volunteers, 826 Valencia opened its doors in April 2002.

826NYC's writing center opened its doors in September 2004. Since then our programs have offered over one thousand students opportunities to improve their writing at our center. Our staff has grown to include 5 employees and over 1,000 volunteers.
