A Note About After-School Tutoring & Writing
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 a limited amount of space for students and are prioritizing returning students, students who need academic support, and families that demonstrate financial need. Right now, both the weekday programs at Park Slope and Williamsburg are at capacity. However, Sundays in Park Slope remain open to drop-in students. Parents/Guardians must fill out a paper application (available in the center) prior to leaving their students for drop-in Sunday tutoring. Students must also come prepared with homework to complete while at Sunday tutoring.

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.
