Founded by a Mom on a mission to TUTOR THE BRONX.
Tutor The Bronx is a new non profit on a mission to support Bronx children and their parents through tutoring, academic support, and family literacy.
Our aim is to provide a guide to life, education, and community by way for engagement, encouragement, and enrichment hence our motto ENGAGE | ENCOURAGE | ENRICH.
Founded by a Native Bronxite and mom, TutorTheBronx, Inc. is the cure to a myriad of issues that face Bronx borough community today: lack of after school resources (that focus on academics as priority #1), lack of parental involvement (for various reasons), and socioeconomic factors and disparities. On the latter, there is a grave differences in-school services between public, charter, and non public school students.
As a former public school student herself, our founder has seen the differences in effectiveness between schools, teachers, and even after school/aftercare providers. She found that her son, who is a highly proficiently in math and science, was being disserviced by providers who were suppose to ensure his educational growth was fostered. Many nights she would have to reteach lessons to ensure understanding.
She is a long time Technical Instructor and Assessor with U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and aspiring teacher- professional tutor, and SETSS/IEP support provider at a Catholic school in the Bronx. She found her niche in helping other parents help their own children by way of varied TTB initiatives.
She is a first generation college graduate, and advanced degree holder from City University of New York John Jay College of Criminal Justice. She will begin her second Masters degree in Special Education in the fall of 2018.
Our founder is seasoned and inspired to help the children and families of the Bronx (and all over!).
