The City Tutors is a volunteer tutoring and mentoring organization with a dual mission: close gaps in academic support and professional development services within historically underserved communities across New York City, and empower more New Yorkers to get involved through tutoring and mentoring. Our vision is to create a hub where any New Yorker can leverage their academic and professional skills and content knowledge to uplift their community and where disadvantaged communities can access resources that they need.
With partnerships across the city, we are able to effectively leverage the expertise of our community of volunteer tutors, as tutors provide academic support in disciplines such as history, science, literacy, and math, among others, to students aged 5-65. Tutors are trained in effective tutoring practices, choose locations where they would like to work and receive guidance and assistance from a tutor trainer as needed.
We offer our volunteer tutors the opportunity to connect with various industry professionals for a 4 to 6 month mentorship. Tutors get their professional documents reviewed, and learn more about a particular industry/job title, while they serve the community. Additionally, given the job insecurity and job loss that New Yorkers are facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to offer all New Yorkers some of our professional development services (i.e. resume and cover letter revision assistance) and when appropriate and possible, informational sessions with industry professionals. All of our mentors have completed their undergraduate degree, and have at least 2 years of work experience. On average, our current mentors have at least 12 years work experience.
We see the City Tutors as an opportunity to bring people together under a common purpose. We want like-minded individuals to feel they are part of a fellowship, to build their network with people within their discipline, and to expand the disciplines and industries they've been exposed to.

The City Tutors mission is to use tutoring as a means to increase community engagement and cultivate community members' professional growth.
We are the tutoring program for CCNY's Colin Powell School and a community organization that serves programs across 4 of the 5 boroughs. Currently we provide in-class tutors to support adult education programs at 5 CUNY schools, including CCNY, BMCC, LaGuardia, City Tech, and Hostos (and its extension campus, CUNY in the Heights). We are also partnered with five non-profits that provide high school equivalency support to the populations they serve: Childrens Aid Society, Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corp, Henry Street Settlement, Goddard Riverside Community Center, and (through the Department of Youth and Community Development) Moshulu Montefiore Community Center. Outside of adult education, we work with housing projects, high schools, and a nano-tech lab. For most of our opportunities, we put tutors in classrooms where they are collaborating with an instructor to support students. We also do one-to-one and small group tutoring. We tailor the support to the needs of the site. We are a great place to tutor if you are in college, a working professional or a retired professional.
