Top Honors (TH) isopeningits doors for its 17th program year, and the enrollmentapplication is nowopen for our free math tutoring program! We invite interested NYC parents with children in need of middle school math support to submit an online application at this time.
Founded in 2002, TH is a private, nonprofit educational charity that provides free, 1-on-1, math tutoring in Downtown Brooklyn and on the Upper West Side. We are funded with the support of our community volunteers, private grants, individual supporters, and fundraising events. We offer our math program at no expense to our families.
Our program works with5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade studentswho are motivated, yet can be described as under-performing in their math classroom. We welcome students from all five boroughs of NYC. We work with students who demonstrate a need for math support and compatibility with our program's structure.
We do not provide homework help or test preparation. Rather, Top Honors assesses gaps in students' math skills. Then, our tutors use anin-house math curriculumthat builds out fundamental middle school math mastery.
