Our Impact & Goals
The North Bronx is, what we have deemed, all areas north of fordham and east of webster. We have a particular focus on Wakefield, Pelham, Baychester, Williamsbridge, Allerton, Coop City, Olinville, and Eastchester.
There are far few NonProfits in the North Bronx, and none that focus primarily on academics. Tutor The Bronx, Inc. provides tutoring to students who can not afford for-profit competitors. TTB participants are able to use services via in-school services, in-center, and at home; services are also in small group, workshops, and individually.
TTB's Mission will do its part to eliminate educational disparities for these students as they navigator the education system year after year grade after grade, and exam after exam. We also seek community partners as the "it takes a village" manta is sacred, and proven to help build rapport and reciprocal support for both the organization and its student/participants.
Our founding tutors have been able to help students pass state exams from the Promotion-in-Doubt state, and have improved failing students to 2nd honors, or 80-85 average, with decoding skills have improved across the board.
Our Founder watches on attentively as attendees of our SPRING 2018 ELA WORKSHOP respond to: "What are details?,"
"How do we know what information is good enough to be considered a supporting detail?"
TTB will host several workshops.
Many will coincide with state exams, the NYC Department of Education vacation schedule, and major public school events.
