Literacy + Math Tutoring

Lit and Math

Become A Tutor, Change a Life

For more than 25 years, the JCC has trained a team of hundreds of volunteers of all ages to help public school students who perform below grade level. This past year, the JCC has provided training, materials, supervision and ongoing support for volunteers who help students who need to catch up and/or keep up with academic skills during this extraordinarily period when students’ learning challenges are exacerbated by learning loss attributed to remote instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This summer, JCC volunteers will continue helping students who participated in our school-year program, as well as students who live in temporary housing facilities throughout Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. Literacy and/or math tutoring will be entirely virtual and one-on-one. Tutoring will take place via Zoom on weekday mornings, Jul 6–29 and/or Aug 2–19. Choose to tutor from 9–9:40 am, 10–10:40 am, and/or 11–11:40 am on Mondays through Thursdays.
