Top Honors Brooklyn
300 Jay Street
Top Honors (TH) is a non-profit educational organization that provides free math tutoring to NYC 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th-graders. Tutoring takes place at two locations, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan at 93rd and Amsterdam and one in Downtown Brooklyn on the 300 block of Jay Street.
Top Honors seeks volunteers who can make the same weekly commitment to one of these time slots from October - May. School holidays are observed, which averages out to be 2-3 Saturdays per month.
We host happy hours and social events to promote camaraderie among our volunteer family. Optional, but we hope that you will take advantage! We encourage our volunteer community to network and lean on one another to maximize their success both at TH and outside of TH.
If you're a functioning adult, you can do our level of math. For example, if you can calculate the tip on your dinner bill without a calculator, you're set. Can you convert a fraction to a decimal and think of a real life application of it? That's the kind of stuff that we do. If you're game, join us!
Prior experience is not required! Top Honors provides basic training, curriculum, and materials. We're looking for role models to middle schoolers. We find that kind, patient, and enthusiastic volunteers match well with our student population. Come join our volunteer family!
